I give up!

On getting a good picture of this project :)  Sorry.  I've been stressing about it for a week, and it just isn't a great picture, but I hope you'll still appreciate that it's a cute project!

Silhouettes are a tad popular right now, and I thought about this one night and decided that I'd do this project to add a little something to my Easter decor.  I like how they turned out, but I did manage to buy two out of three frames with no built in stand and I have to do something about that.  What a dork!

I searched the web for pictures that I could trace in my Create and Cut software.  Cut the chicks out in two different sizes and flipped one.  I used mostly scraps of paper for everything else.  Clouds were cut freehand and all the inking was done with a sponge for an antique sort of effect.  I hot-glued the goodies to the outside of the frames because I like that look.  I also chose three different frame styles to make it have that eclectic look.  (They are all white, not that you can tell from this awful picture).

Anyway, thanks for looking!  I hope you're having a good time getting your house ready for spring!

These are SO cute! I usually get "pastel overload" with Easter crafts and decor, but the black silouettes and edging balance it out. Love it!
