City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 161 ~ Burlap Love

This week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, our lovely host Charlene calls for 

Burlap Love

Here's my project using burlap








my aunt gave me some of old photos the last time I went back to Singapore, and asked me to make something for her, the photos look very old and the colors all faded, so I took some picture with those photos in grey scale, and make her this



put it in a painted frame and sending it her way


I hope she like it.

If you like burlap, come over and play with us
