Good morrow fair humans and bears. Yet another Wednesday has rolled around, and the desk addicts among us know what that means don't we? Yet another peek at crafters' desks worldwide, courtesy of our lovely host,

It's Podgy here with you today, attempting a monochromatic scrapbook page of the day I came to live at The House of Bears. Here I am, just after applying my texture paste, surrounded by lots of black and white for my project. Well, if I'm attempting a page of my good self I need to use my native colours!
I searched November's Scrap365 magazine for inspiration, and found this fabulous page.
To start, I drew a rough rectangle, somewhere in the middle of my white 12x12 card, where I wanted my photo to be.
Next, I wanted to create some texture; I scraped some texture paste onto a spare piece of card, mixed it with some black watercolour paint,
And squidged (technical term) the texture through our harlequin mask, using Horace's credit card!
Hmm, i'm not sure what effect I was hoping to achieve, but this reminds me of tyre tracks!
Ah well, it'll just look like someone has driven over my page.
Next I used some black stickers to make a title
Which I placed on my tyre tracked page.
I thought the page needed a little something else, so used the harlequin mask again, this time to make a negative effect by inking the mask
and pressing it down onto my page, matching the stencil into the texture already on the page.
Before I adhere anything to the page, I always take a while to consider the placement of my elements, and to admire my furry photo of course!!
Oh look, it's me with me!
It's not really this wonky, my photography skills leave a lot to be desired. That's the problem with paws.
Now I've finished my page, it's time for me to desk hop, I love Wednesdays.
Oh, if you like challenges, don't forget the bears' monthly literary themed challenges, this months can be found if you Press your furry paw here
With love from the bears.
