Happy Memorial Day to you all! Hope you've got your flags flying and the weather is perfect for the kick-off to barbeque season. This week at Bitten By The Bug Regina asked us to use the Bookmark from the Animal Kingdom cartridge. We could use this cut any way we wanted so instead of choosing one of the animals I decided to use the book stack with the apple on Hello Kitty Greetings which I welded in Design Studio to the plain bookmark. I used bright primary colors and my favorite BoBunny double dot paper for the base.
My book worm is actually the caterpillar from Stretch Your Imagination with his legs cut off. I also cut off his head to reattach it at a different angle. (No I didn't torture bugs as a child, this is in the name of art. LOL) I inked and accordion folded the body and added some small pompoms, then reattached his head with some button glasses and google eyes so he'd look studious.
Naturally all of the cuts were pop dotted for dimension and I did a bit of doodling with a white gel pen. For some reason I couldn't get the flap that fits over the page to cut although it showed at least little score marks for placement (but it didn't cut those either, GRRRRRR!) The 2 small starting holes did cut however, so I ended up cutting the flap by hand with an Exacto knife. You'll be amazed at all of the adorable bookmarks my DT sisters made for this challenge so pop on over HERE to see them in all of their glory. Maybe we can inspire you to play along, or at least pull out a good book! Hugs!
