Dinotopia...


... Last night I sat down to make a scrap page. Since I've had dinosaur punch art on my mind of late, I decided it would be a 12 x 12 dinosaur-themed page.

It didn't come out on paper nearly as groovy as it looked in my head (funny that ;-). I don't think that photo is the right one for the page....not at all. But anyway...I'm posting it here, because it took FOREVAH to make, and I like how the punch art turned out! I'll ponder the photo and re-jig if I figure out how to fix it.


I've blotted out a little poem (using Photoshop) that I composed and wrote around the edge of the page (on the Chocolate Chip frame) in White Gel Pen, its for our eyes only.

The photo is one of our son, aged two, and with food all over his face. Nothing to do with dinosaurs, but it looked like he was kinda surprised and possibly about to scream...which I thought fitted the dinosaur theme. I found that I don't have any decent photos of him playing with his dinosaurs, and he wouldn't consent to an impromptu sitting. Maybe once I rectify that situation I'll have something better to put there.

I'm going to leave it at that. Its too hot to be thinking this hard.
