Animal Kingdom Blogtrain

I have gone wild (pun intended) over this months’ blogtrain! Ever since we bended the theme from ‘furry friends’ to Animal Kingdom I have had this idea in my head of collage-type animals. I am really thankful we didn’t stick with the ‘furry’ animals – somehow furry and collages don’t blend together in my head… Even though I pondered over this blogtrain part for three weeks, I was hesitant to start. Do you know that feeling when you have a clear image in your head on how you want something to turn out and then, when you finally get started, it turns out completely NOT as you wanted it too? I was so scared this was going to happen that I kept pushing back the deadline. But I got myself in gear, started waaaaayyy ahead of the deadline (over a week ahead – this has never happened before!) and I finished in the course of a morning (did you just fall of your chair? I did…). And it looked GREAT (at least, I think so ;-)). It looks even better than it did in my head, which it almost never does. Plus, I had loads of fun. So much so, that I don’t want to stop – I want to do more animals. Lots more! So, if you like what you see and you have any requests for animals you would love to see, please leave them in the comments. Can’t wait to get started on the next lot!

    melo, i believe you’re an art journaler to the core! these are brilliant. and that’s no accident! thanks for sharing your making of process – makes me feel a bit more confident about my designs, knowing it’s not unsual to have these kinds of doubts going through your head as you work… 🙂

      Oh Paddy, doubt is a second nature to me. But as long as you don’t get overpowered by them and just get started, sometimes you end up with happy accidents!

    Make one to go with my wolves, please?? I’d love to use it a zillion times in the family scrapbook (wolf theme). Considering that my fiance could not generally care less about scrapbooking and he said your animals are really neat, it’s a huge hint that he’d love it if I use one or two of them.

    They turned out so BEAUTIFUL. I love this collage style. I use it often in my paper crafts. Now you have inspired me to use it in digi scrapping, too! 🙂
