Chunkies Continue With A Twist


Some of us are die-hard chunky page fans.  So, while the Sketchbook chunkies take a break, a few of us decided to continue a modified chunky swap.  The format remains a 4" x 4" page, but the rotation is like an altered book round robin.  Each player selects a theme for their own chunky book and each month a different player is assigned to create a 4" x 4" page for that book.  In the end, everyone will have a page from every other player.  

Bea's theme is "Fear" and she invited each of us to explore one of our own fears.  I have done a few fear-themed spreads in the past (fear of temptation, fear of heights, etc).  What would I do this time?  Well, believe it or not, the idea I got for Bea's page came to me in a dream.  I had recently purchased these animal print rolls of duct tape.  I got one orange giraffe print and one snake print.  Of course!  I could use the snake print duct tape and make a page on my fear of snakes!  Brilliant!

Fresh off my pop-up spiral tornado (for the Wicked book), I again created a spiral using the snake print duct tape to resemble a coiled snake.  I added the forked tongue and two beady little eyes and voila!  There was my snake.  Until I started to make this page, I did not know what the technical name of this phobia was.  The fear of snakes is called ophidiophobia.

  1. Love this! My idea of fear is when my phone rings in the middle of the night.
