Over the last few weeks, we have, in New Zealand, been remembering the landing of New Zealand and Australian troops on the beach at Gallipoli in Turkey on 25th April, 1915. This was a disastrous military undertaking and thousands of soldiers were killed over a period of months.
I made this set of poppies and the frame to remind us of the sacrifice made by so many.
The poppies were cut using the Cricut Explore and the Giant 3D flowers cartridge. I cut the words from black vinyl and attached them to the glass front of a photo frame that I repurposed by sanding down, painting with black acrylic then rubbed with antiqueing wax.
