Challenge #86 - Make a Scene

Hello, this week we want you to MAKE A SCENE.

Not the argue loudly with your boyfriend in the middle of a restaurant scene. We want you to MAKE A SCENE in your art project.

*****
Rosemary here - At first I was going to make a collage but then realized I wanted to do something more dimensional sooooo....
The scene I made is a 4" matchbox made with my Cricut using Bags, Tags, and More cartridge.  My little guy is sitting in his nursery enjoying a snack while kitty plays with a yarn ball at his feet!
Actually, I found that cutting the matchbox "lid" (the piece with the window) out at 4-1/4" while the sliding part was cut at 4" allowed for more ease in adjusting.
The other details are: 
  • a wee piece of DCWV Nana's Nursery - Boy was used as wallpaper,
  • Count Your Blessings is Mary Engelbreit chipboard from one of those Michael's $1 boxes of chipboard,
  • the little fella was a piece of free vintage clip art that I adhered to cardstock and fussy cut, (when he was glued at the base it seemed flimsy and so I also added a little bit of cardstock on the back of the image for stability)
  • the kitten is a K&Co chipboard piece from a long ago box of vintage looking chipboard,
  • and the yarn ball is a little red pompom,
  • a piece of plastic to cover the window,
  • buttons from the bottomless pit of buttons I have,
  • and a hint o' baby blue Stickles.

    Jana here: This week I MADE A SCENE in my art journal. It's a work in progress. I still have to add shading. And journaling, of course, but, I want to "feel it" when I work on my art journal, so I don't want to force it. I might finish it today. Or tomorrow. Or the next. I don't know when. But it will happen.

    I wrote a little bit more about how I got to this SCENE on my blog HERE. If you're interested.
