Framed Wallpaper

I found rolls of wallpapers in the corner of my local charity shop the other day and surprised to find one roll that is still unused and has a cute pink flowers in the middle of gold pattern on it for 50p and another roll but this one is half used and it's probably only a few metres left, it's also pink and has a kind of striped pattern on it but the price is also the same, i can't help to snatch them up and use them for the frames that I also bought in charity shop £1 for 3 frames (I still have one frame to do something else) and repainted them white and did abit of shabby chic style with one frame to make a distress look.

I saw so many beautiful silhouette tutorials out there from talented and crafty bloggers that I just have to try and make one, so I picked up my camera and put it on timer to snap a pic of me looking sideways, then use a Threshold option/effect on my photo editor so the photo only shown black and white, printed it out and cut the outline and glued it in the middle of the frame where I use the pink striped wallpaper for the background.

PS: MyUncommonSliceofSuburbia is having a super duper cute giveaway, pop in there and you might just get lucky!
