Animalisms

the march blog train theme was really extensive and because i couldn't decide on just one animal/ color, i created something different.

a set of supplies good for general use, neutral enough to blend in any sort of page you're making but still funky enough to add some cool accents!

originally, i was only gonna share a set of handletter cards with you.
funny thing about handlettering i didn't realize at first - to achieve a proper brush stroke flow, you have to hold the brush in your right hand.
(i'm a left hander, by the way)
but i wasn't gonna let that stop me!


that's six 3x4 animal phrase cards in .jpg which i believe you'll (sometimes) be able to relate to. and a mystery bonus card - thrown in just for fun! 

for the finishing touch on the cards, i needed to create some animal icons. and once i had them, i wanted to see what more i might do with them. and so- you're also getting this paper pack! now, how cool is that?!



just making sure you don't miss any of the awesome contributions - here's the complete bt list 

i already snagged a couple portions and scrapped a little somethin' somethin':



and finally, i wanted to give a big thanks to all you lovely people for the comments you've left me here. i've so enjoyed reading them & this kind of feedback just makes me wanna create more stuff for you! really appreciate it.

got an animalistic layout in mind, yet?

  9. Hello Paddy, Thank you so much for your amazing and lovely designs for the Animal Kingdom blog train! Wow, you made so many fabulous things! Goodness, those expressions certainly ring true! I can't wait to see your bonus one! And what fun papers! I am amazed that you can do so well painting with your 'wrong' hand - much better than I can manage with either hand! Thanks for your lovely designs, and your generosity in sharing your hard work! Best wishes from Pamela

    1. ha ha ha, you're right- it really was a challenge to write with the right hand! that's why the letters are a bit wobley, but i say it gives them charm :D
