My swap page for Sally in the Dr. Suess swap I'm in. This will be my page, the first out of 10 to make :S. At least all the quote, title, and flower stamping is done. Now it's just RSing the rest of the pages, cutting out, and putting together. I think I'm finally getting a better grip on making swap 12x12s. It really is quite the learning curve. Sally was scanned from one of the Cat in the Hat books. I don't remember which since I just scanned a bunch of her then picked out 2 to alter then decide between. She's actually in black and white with the exception of her bow which was red. I used colored pencils to color her in, using my memory of the cartoon and just trying to match her with the page colors a little. The top left flower is pop dotted and the petals are curved so it's a bit more 3D than the picture shows. Still needs one more embellie to meet the swap requirements but I haven't decided what to use yet.

Wow, a 12 x 12 swap?! (I usually do 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards or ATCs) That sounds cool but lots of work, I am sure! I can't wait to see them all when you get them. Please show us pics when you get them back!!

This is too cute! I am thrilled to have found your blog. Your artwork is amazing!! Would you mind if I added you to my blog roll?

I used to be a CTMH consultant but recently resigned to pursue designing my own stamps. Of course I still love CTMH products and you do a fabulous job with them!!
