In the Jungle

Hi there, thank goodness it is Friday! It i my little baby's 2nd birthday today so we have had a very busy day with visitors, cake and pressies! Both boys are exhausted but happy little vegemites.

Today I have some altered frames for my bubba's bedroom to share with you.

The large "Z"'s are MDF letters which I have painted white and mod podged some patterned paper. The frames were originally icky brown raw wood which I sanded, primed and painted. The backing paper is also mod podged to the backing board. The adorable guys are from the Tilda and Edwins Pets and Animals collection from 2009. I love these stamps and use them all the time for my kids.

I punched some leaves and scalloped circles  to create the pennant banners. They are stitched to raffia and the edges inked in Walnut stain DI.

I've done some quick doodling around the edges of the letters so they stand out a bit. The actual letters sit fairly proud of the frames, but I didnt get a good photo of this. I actually found them quite difficult to photograph for some reason. Perhaps it is the crappy winter light we are experiencing right now.

I thought the song lyrics were appropriate for these as they are now hanging in my little guy's bedroom brightening it up for him.

Thats it from me today. I'm off to have a relaxing night at my craft desk.
Have a great weekend.
