Welcome to the zoo...

....well, maybe just to the Butterfly House, which only makes sense if you live in Melbourne where we have a beautiful one.... 

 Here are a couple of ATCs for the latest Opus Gluei challenge which is to use animals, real or imagined, in our work.  It would have so easy to find a cat to use...........many many many here, but I found this paper and went with it instead.  I think the butterfly one is just a bit too extreme, but I like the bird on his branch.

And I had to sneak a cat in too, even if just as a prop for the photo.  

Details: paper is Kaisercraft "Secret Bird Society Collection", the branch is cut with a Taylored Expressions die called "Leafy Branch" and run through the cuttlebug, and all the other oddments are from the busy room boxes.


  1. I think the bird one is my favorite. I like the black branches contrasting with the lighter color of the BG. Do you like your Cuttlebug? I am thinking of getting one.

    1. I like the bird one best too!! Re the cuttlebug, I've had it for ages and I fall in and out of love with it. Sometimes its just too much trouble to get out, and other times I want to emboss everything in sight......perhaps not always a good look. When I find a die I like, I spend ages cutting many many MANY of them, and that's how the branch came about.


love to know what you think.......
