Inspired by the insane invasion of Junebugs we have this year, I have put together these Paper Bugs:
Tomorrow is Art Card Trading day, and I had fun making these! I cut out pieces of fancy paper with hand, and I also used a paper punch for the spirals. Then I threw in a bit of rubber stamping and some freehand pencil crayon, a soupçon of string, and voilà: Paper Bug art trading cards.
You know the June bugs are bad when your dog goes out at night and eats so many of them that he throws up a pile of corpses. And the cats are having a field day hunting the ones that get into the front porch. Less puking on the feline front, fortunately. And for reasons I don't understand, I find several dead June bugs on my office floor every single morning. Normally they don't creep me out, but when 50 of them are hanging around your front door at night, and then start getting into your hair, well, EEEEYUW! And when you accidentally squash one in the door frame, well, let's just say that June bugs are VERY juicy, with quite the gut-spatter pattern. EEEEEYUW! You know, suddenly the sushi Gordon is bringing home for supper seems somehow less appetizing. (June bug sushi, now there's an interesting Japanese-inspired protein fix!)
If you're interested in learning more about Art Trading Cards, or just getting inspiration, check out the ATC Quarterly, put together by this cool artist, who is one of the founders of the ATC group I am involved in. (Btw, Ronna, I plan on subscribing to ATC myself, if I can get my brain together enough to remember to give you a cheque tomorrow.)
June bugs on 'roids, that's what we have this year...
