Long time no see - Quirky Picture this challenge.

Quirky Crafts challenges are back, and we need at least one more person on the team so we are having a DT call as well.
The first challenge of 2017 is set by me and is Called Quirky Picture This. I want you to use a photo either the actual photo on your project, or to be inspired by the colours, layout, elements of your favourite photo, and if you don't use the whole photo on your make you need to show us the photo you used.
I didn't know if I was going to be able to make something, it's been a long time and my mojo was gone, but I did it! I printed four photos of my dogs, well mostly of my new rescue dog Luna who has been here two months now since flying from Cyprus with just one of Sooty at the bottom. Life has never been the same, and I have had to buy new footwear and a shoe cupboard with doors to keep her from the shoes and boots! The top photo shows the first shoe of mine she destroyed!
The photo of her sitting is when she first arrived, sitting looking cute in her new crocheted jumper with pretty buttons to put it on - until she chewed them all off making holes in the process! Now it is sewn together and has to go over her head and has a few chunks missing!
Our sponsors for this challenge are Bugaboo and Crafty Ribbons, and all the cute digi dogs I used are part of the same set called Bugvalpup. I had to get some of the Instagram camera ribbon for this too, and more muddy paws ribbons. I also added buttons, twine and an odd sequin. I coloured the pups and hearts with Graph'it markers, and found that the canvas paper I used is very absorbent and it's impossible to blend, the ink just dries instantly.
The canvas is mounted on a frame which was part of a set destined for the charity shop, it seemed like a good idea to try using it. 

I finished the picture with muddy paws ribbon all round the outside.

Hop on over to Quirky and see what the rest of the team have made and maybe join in the fun!
