2012 Artisan Design Team Entries Blog Hop-Day 10


Welcome back to the 2012 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we finish featuring our winning entries for the 2012 Artisan Design Team Contest with my last scrapbook page. If you are following the hop, then you probably arrived from Jeanna Bohanon's blog. In addition to a slightly embarrassing picture of me, she showed a really cute party ensemble made in My Digital Studio. Be sure to check it out! We've been featuring our winning projects for 10 days straight.

Here is my tenth project for the hop, the third of three scrapbook pages that I submitted.


I love this picture of my dog Monty. He's usually sleeping on my dark brown couch, which makes it hard to get a good picture of a black dog. But, when it's hot out then he lays on my wood floor. The day I took this it was sunny out, and there was really great difused natural light coming in from the window. The journaling talks about the fact that sometimes when he sleeps, he dreams and you can see his paws moving and him running in his sleep. I imagine that he is chasing squirrels and rabbits and birds...oh my! So, I made some little dream scenes with those animals. I used MDS to get the cloud shapes. Then, I drew landscape lines onto white cardstock, stamped the animals above the lines, watercolored the animals, trimmed around the top edge, glued them to the clouds and then trimmed the bottom edge to match the clouds. Then, I paper pieced pieces of grass in various green patterned papers along the same landscape line and trimmed along the bottom cloud edge again.

Here is a close-up so you can see the critters.
