Other People’s Creepy Family
|What's her secret???|
I collect old photos of people’s pets, people that creep me out, disasters, and funereal photos. A few years back I started making little ornaments featuring the people (and sometimes pets!) and I referred to them as Other People’s Families.
A few months ago I was at an antique store sifting through photos and this woman caught my eye. I knew she would be featured in something this Halloween but I wasn’t sure what it would be until yesterday.
Cautions: Pretty much everything needed to make this craft I had on hand. You might need to buy a frame and mat or any of the other supplies.
Halloween-themed scrapbook paper
Glue (I use Ranger Glossy Accents™)
|Something about her eyes...|
Once I chose the photo I wanted, I took a picture of it and emailed it to myself as a JPEG. You could scan the photo and save it to your computer, if you have the equipment handy.
I saved the image in varying sizes and printed them out in color. Because I thought I might want to use her image again in another project, I saved those images in my paper horde.
With nimble fingers, I cut the woman out of the photo and set her aside. (I chose some spooky scrapbook paper and cut it to fit the frame I decided to use.
I placed the scrapbook paper with my chosen design face-up and put the mat on top of it. I then situated the woman where I wanted her and put a small squiggle of Glossy Accents on the backside of the cutout and glued her in place. (carefully rubbing the cutout to remove any air bubbles)
|True love always...|
The image looked nice, but it needed something so I raided my craft stash and got stickers and rhinestones. After much arranging and rearranging, I came up with a look I liked.
