Have you seen all of the new images Rick St Dennis has out there right now in his Zibbit and his Etsy pages? He has some fabulous new Halloween and Christmas ones that have just been released!! You've gotta see them!! This one is Zombie Tangle. You can find him HERE on Etsy (instant download) or HERE on Zibbit. My sister posted a fun thing on Facebook that made me think up this sentiment. I thought it was reletively perfect for the image!! LOL I used some papers it got from a K&Company paper pack, added some flowers, gems and ribbon. I used some red acrylic paint on the "bloody" places and used some glossy accents over his eyes.
I made a Post-It Note holder out of it...
Gotta love the useful! Right? :)

We are back in Wonderland. Here are the Tweedle Twins looking rather menacing. Rick's take on these characters is so quirky I had to colour each one. I printed the twins onto neenah and coloured them with promarkers, the back ground is from A Very Important Date from mcs. I then imported them into CA2 where I removed the white background and melded and shaded. I hope you have a moment to visit my blog, there are more Wonderland characters lurking in the posts. Sue

Hi everyone! It's Bonnie here. As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am cat crazy and I have a very off the wall sense of humour. That's why Rick St. Dennis' cat images make me laugh. Meet Dave who can be found in Rick's Zibbet shop. Clearly, Dave is enjoying life and also the little pleasures ( a mouse sammy) that it holds for him. I just had to feature Dave on a mixed media spread in my art journal.
I coloured Dave with Prismacolor pencils using tiny choppy zigzags to create the impression of fur. Then he was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, and matted on black cardstock. Doesn't the mustard jar make you smile? The image was popped up on foam tape and set aside to await the background.
Three different designer papers plus some French booktext were torn and adhered to the background with matte medium, overlapping each other. The edges of the papers were trimmed along the outsides of the pages. Black embossing paste was scraped through TCW's Sketch Grid and white gesso was pounced through TCW's Mini Punchinella stencil. Red ink was splattered and blown with a straw. The word "Nom" as in nom-nom-nom was stamped randomly using Orange Blossom Archival ink. Dots were also stamped with the same ink.
The sentiments were computer generated and the two larger ones were cut out with a Spellbinders die before being given a doodled check border The single words were matted in black and popped up on foam tape. Dave's name was added with stickers. Bits of washi tape and border remnants were added to the design along with doodling and outlining. The edges of both pages were outlined with a black Big Brush pen to frame the pages and keep the eye within the spread.
The final touch was to add a mouse button to the upper left sentiment with foam tape. I had so much fun creating this spread. Thanks so much for joining Dave and me.

This is the last of the loo's for a while... there is still a Christmas version I would like to colour up but that can wait a while. I was telling my grandson Jaydn that this is what outside toilets could look like in America... if he thinks this is hilarious then maybe I should show him photos of British outside loos... they are downright ugly.
A typical British outside loo
Outside Toilets Rear of 162 Burgoyne Rd 1981
at least Americans have style!
Big Sur Outhouse designed and drawn by Rick St. Dennis. Printed onto neenah, coloured with promarkers. Frame from The Range. Embellishments and background made in Craft Artist 2.
