I actually think this monster is kinda cute!! I used the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc#293. I printed the digi on white card, coloured with Copic markers and cut it out with a scalpel. Love the Snailian's mad eyes! After I cut him out I added sparkle - he's an alien monster, so he should sparkle! I stamped a number of balloons on white card and cut them out. I stamped the round yellow balloon on a patterned stamp from SU and used the stamped oof image for my balloon. I added a birthday greeting to the balloon. I attached some string to the balloons and attached them to the card with dimensional gel. I hide the strings behind the snailian. I used Lil Inkers dies to cut the black mat. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black and added a birthday present to the white panel.
Here's a close up of the cute monster Snailian - he really does shimmer and sparkle, especially as I took the photo in bright sunshine!
If you like this little monster - Snailian Digi, you can find him and several of his friends at Rick's Zibbet shop.
Now, the reason that my weekend was only mostly okay is that I had to weed the garden. Last Friday I had a visit from the Northville Ordinance Police - someone had reported my garden as having too many weeds (they're not wrong), but I was rather taken aback! While I love a pretty garden, I actually hate gardening! So I spent three hours on Saturday morning pulling out the weeds on the front and sides of the house. I've still got the back to do, but that's a job for later today. The rest of the weekend has been great. I did manage to get into my craft room on Saturday and had lots of fun. Then yesterday Kathryn and I went to a photo shoot in Pontiac with one of our favourite models, Rachel! Such a beautiful women - inside and out!
Jonathan is away for a few days at a photography course in Illinois. And this is Kathryn's last week at Meads Mill Middle School - she's got some finals this week, but finishes on Thursday and then is on holiday for 3 months!!!
That's all for now - got to go and finish the weeding. Do come back tomorrow! See you!!
