I made this for a friend's birthday. I think she liked it! ^_^



The text is from the geek sitcom Spaced episode "Art", which involves zombies, conceptual art, enormous amounts of free booze and twiglets.



To get the speckled effect I used variegated floss chopped into three sections of shade; light, medium and dark. I used a strand of each together. You could just use three different shades of floss, but I just worked with what I had.

What are Twiglets? Yeast extract flavoured wheat snacks: http://flic.kr/p/5Cf6Xe

Approximately 5x5 inches, in a second hand frame.
