Deer Silhouette Paper Craft

One of my reasons for this blog is to motivate myself to create a lovely home.  My walls are a little bare and I am slowly remedying that.  

Today I wanted to create something for my entry wall.  It was a "use what you have" kind of day...partly because I am trying to be more intentional with the things I have in my home...but mostly because our craft store is closed on Sunday up here on the mountain. Not gonna lie, I didn't think I had anything "good" in my craft supplies, but I was determined to give it a try anyway. 

I just love the mixed media work by artist Dolan Geiman.  He's very talented and creates splendid works of art out of found items and scraps of wood.  So I give credit to him for the inspiration for this super easy, quick craft. 

I first cut out an image of a deer head on my Silhouette on 12" card stock and selected scrapbook paper from a very old stash of supplies from when my first born son (now 7) was born. 

I made strips by gently ripping the paper by hand. 

 I then layered the strips of ripped paper.
 I tested the deer silhouette before securely taping everything together.
I used a white frame that I had lying around in my craft room.  I placed the glass from the frame on my deer to position him correctly then traced around the glass. A few cuts and a few pieces of tape and the project was complete. 

I love the way it turned out and it didn't cost me a penny! Now I just need to complete a few more projects for my entry wall and hang the arrangement.
