holiday hearts

A friend on Facebook had the most adorable Christmas tree heart pictures. When I realized that this was a simple craft project for my camera I had to try it! 1st attempt...decent. It took me two tries getting the heart cut out small enough to achieve the effect. I will be making another with two improvements. 1. A much sharper exact-o knife (for crispy lines) ...and 2. cutting a slightly smaller heart (which will be the real challenge).

With all the sparkling lights around town this time of year it is a perfect holiday project. The best explanation of the "Bokeh" directions I could find were here. Happy crafting!Oh Photography, how you keep trying to reel me back in.
