Molly's Garden

Last Thursday, I went along to the Dylusions Play Day at Alice in Paperland.  This is such a fun morning with everyone doing their own thing, so to speak, and to add to the creativeness,  five very creative young girls joined in (school holidays last week and this week).  I tell you, kids don't have any concerns about what should go with what, they just go with the flow and their creativeness could teach me a thing or two!

I chose a double page that I had used some dimensional paste through a stencil last time I played, so it was now well and truly dry.  I started by spraying a bit of yellow, orange and brown through a stencil (cell theory), not colours I usually use together, but with a few 'puddles' of black added, it was looking good.

Next a border was added with the dots coloured with red Dylusions, followed by a honeycomb stamp rolled here and there, and I added little dots of colour in some of the hexagonals.

The bats, cobweb and bushes (Dylusions - sorry, don't know the name) were stamped in jet black Archival, as was "Molly" (Stampotique) who was stamped onto some book paper and left uncoloured (so was his/her party hat).  It's a funny thing but I really can't decide whether Molly is a boy or girl monster - rather cute though in a sad sort of way!

At this point we had run out of time and were packing up, so the remainder of the pages were finished at home.  The spider (G45 Happy Hauntings) was added to the web, extra leaves and plants (SU) were added to the bushes and Molly was fussy cut and glued into place in the garden.  Molly's Garden is left over rubon letters from ages ago.  I think an interesting little verse or anecdote should be added to the left page, but until I find the right one, it will remain as you see it.  If you look hard on the left page, there are three owls sitting on a branch too (G45 Happy Hauntings) !

 I hope you've enjoyed a stroll around "Molly's Garden".  Do let me know what you think !

Happy crafting!
