Unscripted Sketches and Backyard resident

A recent purchase was some great, shear journaling spots from The Little Yellow Bicycle and so when I saw the sketch for this week at Unscripted Sketches, I just knew this was the perfect use for one of the pieces in the package.
The patterned paper is from a pad of papers from the Traveler collection, also from The Little Yellow Bicycle. I loved all of the prints in this collection and I love that by getting the pad, I got smaller prints then what they use on the 12" x 12" papers. The smaller prints are so perfect for cards.
I did punch a circle from plain white cardstock and placed that behind my shear shape so that my rub-on words would show up better. The flower and the leaf image are stamps by DRS Designs. I did stamp the flower with black ink and I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I just might want to use this flower in the black and white on all of my creations!!!
And, now for our backyard resident! These is a spider somewhere and this guy makes a new, HUGE web everyday. Everyday we go out and destroy the amazing creation and everyday or should I say everynight, the spider recreates a new work of art. It truly is an amazing piece of nature's artwork although we would rather he wouldn't do this. I had to take my camera out to try to capture something of it. I used manual focusing to get this photo. That way I could focus on the web and the background was not in focus.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
