I took a break from my mini-album project to make a baby name collage for a friend at work. Her baby boy, Austin, is due in October and this will be a present for her baby shower. Her theme is Jungle and her colors are brown and green.
The latest FCCB challenge is "Let's Get Buggy" and it challenged me to include lots of bugs in the collage. Here's the link FCCB #72. I'm also linking this to My Pink Stamper's "Favorites" blog hop. Here's that link: MPS Blog Hop
I just got the Create a Critter cartridge (can you believe it took me so long to get this cartridge!) and I used tons of the images from it to decorate the collage. I also used the Paisley cartridge. Here's a closeup of the lion, mushroom, snail, and ladybug:
I used clear Stickles on almost every cut to add some interest, but I didn't want to do too much since this is for a boy.
The monkeys from Create a Critter are too cute! I used the "Flip" function so the monkeys looked a tad different. I cut them at 1 1/2 inches and 2 1/2 inches. I used the Colorbok paper from Walmart because it really cuts well for small images.
Here's the collage in its frame (bought at Joann's):
I may also make some smaller collages to go with this one. I can't wait to give it to the mother-to-be!
