Do you LOVE polka dots? I do! When Kathy asked for suggestions for this month's challenges, I suggested Polka Dots! When my daughter was a senior in high school, we went shopping together for dresses to wear to her graduation. As we walked through various stores I would stop to Oooh and Ahhh over various dresses, and my daughter would quickly pull me away. My daughter said, "Mom, do you realize that every dress you stop to look at is polka dot? You have a closet full of polka dot dresses!" Guilty! I did! I didn't buy a polka dot dress for her graduation, I chose a flowered dress instead. Fast forward to the present, and I have NO polka dot dresses in my closet, although I do have a few polka dot tops and blouses! Hee hee! ;D
Last week I promised that I would show you another page for my Twi Book. Here it is! It was fun "Going Crazy with Polka Dots" for this week's Pixie Dust Challenge! I used three different polka dot papers plus polka dot ribbon!
The quote is from Eclipse. I printed it out and applied it to my hand drawn scroll. I found the mesh, sparkly, stretchy ribbon at Hobby Lobby and thought it was perfect to match the silver sparkles on the CS. I drew flames and cut them out of polka dot paper because Bella thought that Victoria's hair resembled flames. The red heart was cut out of sparkly red felt, and then the hand cut broken heart was glued on top. The heart symbolizes Victoria's pain at losing James, but it's also black because Victoria isn't very nice. :(
