Default Great Grandson's cutting

Here is a cutting of my great grandson PJ pattern is by connie at scrollers cafe. I used gorilla glue to attach the cutting to the glass of the frame and then painted the back side flat black. Glass came out like a black mirror. My wife loved the way it turned out. Stacked cut 4 to give as Christmas gifts. I couldn't get it to resize so go to my photo album--Richard aka rthumbs

G'day Thumbs,
That's a neat cutting.

You have some fantastic work pictured.
