Little Critters

This weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Little Critters was a lot of fun. I took monkey pictures out of a story in a highlights magazine and glued them down to start. I then used Distress Oxides in green and brown to fill in the background. I stamped all the various types of leaves, and the small caterpillar. Then I used a water pen with delusions spray in it to outline some with orange. I also used colored pencils to add color to the black leaves and to the caterpillar. Then I stamped the phrase. I had a lot of fun with this page and was very happy with how it turned out.

Family = Home

For this weeks Simon Says stamp Challenge: Home Sweet Home, I decided to do a canvas incorporating one of our new family pictures. I used liquid acrylic paint on the canvas, just streaking it on there, and then highlighting some extra orange around the edges. I then stuck the picture down. I used very this wood paper and snapped it off into frame sized pieces and created the wood frame of the house around the picture. I then used some homemade fiberous paper, overlayed on a cardboard triangle for the roof. The word family is black painted cardboard letters glued on. I layer together random paper flowers that fit the color pattern, using a brad to keep them together, also making the middle of the flower look more, well flower like. Then I stuck those down and allowed everything to dry overnight. I love my family!!
