with Gingersnap Creations for Once In A Blue Moon challenge: Things That Leap ... on Leap Day or all year round (lol)
Aren't they sweet ... and maybe a little bit creepy .... but they seem to be full of enthusiasm and determination to get the golden ball out of the pond, well, the pretend pond!
This is quite an old book I 'rescued' from a dump. The paper is wonderfully soft, mellow and aged and it was a joy to work with it. To alter the book I started cutting circles by hand creating a small basin just deep enough for the golden pearl/ball. The next step was to glue the pages together. Because I wanted the book to look like a book I did not glue the sides of the book but only the individual pages
For creating the leap scene I inked the background and surface with various distress inks and stamped the muslin pattern from Lost Coast Design. I cut out the frogs from a clipart image and glued it to the page. The big bolt letters are Sizzix diecuts also stamped with the muslin pattern.
Come and leap with us over at Gingersnap Creations, this is so much fun! Petra.
