This week's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is Stripes & Dots. I had a hard time mixing stripes and dots. I was planning on making the catepillar all stripes, and the grass dots, but cut my striped paper (a scrap) wrong (and ruined half of the circles) and a new plan was formed!!
I used my gypsy to to create this layout. I found grass from WB 2 A Garden Of Words and sized it to 6" wide. I cut four.
I took some pieces of the catepillar's body and hid the letters. I welded three body sections (3 letters each) together and then welded a head on top. The head was a little small, so I sized a circle to 1.77w x 1.71h and welded it on top. I sized nine circles to 1.32w x 1.27h to put on the body of the catepilar.
The grass was not long enough, so I glued it to the back of some green paper strips.
I glued on the circles every other one stripes then dots.
I added some green stickles around the circles and red stickles for a mouth. I added some gold gems for the eyes and antenaes.
I found these clouds from Create A Critter, the sun from CM Cheerful Seasons, and the flowers from WB2 A Garden of Words. These flowers were cut from green paper for the stems.
I found the word Spring from Straight From the Nest and the letters for fever from Nursery Rhyme. I copy and pasted the flowers and separated them into sections so I could cut several colors out at once.
I cut off the stems from the colored pieces and glued the flowers onto the green pieces.
I took the clouds and inked the edges with light blue. I flipped over a couple of clouds and used them to mask off the white part of the cloud and fill in the blue.
I saved the scrap/negative piece of my "fever" paper to use as a template.
This is one of my favorite parts of using my Gypsy!!
I added some photos of Tanner holding a snake he found at his brother's baseball game.
He was a bit sad that I would not let him bring the snake home....
