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.
