When I was in my first year drawing class in college, one of our projects was to take an object and change it gradually over a series of six drawings. I remember having seen a photo in an art book, of an animal in a jungle. I can’t remember what I drew as an animal, but it eventually grew horns and the foliage grew over and around the animal. The drawing has been gone for many years now but every once in a while I remember it and how truly awful it was.

When I saw It’s a Jungle Out There one of the new October 1st releases from My Favorite Things, that old drawing immediately came to mind. I was talking with Jeanne on the phone one night and was telling her what I wanted to do with this set. During the conversation, Kittie’s name came up and I realized that I hadn’t even looked at the DD Gallery yet. I started to scan through the gallery and saw a Kittie card, with this set and very much like what I visualized. I remember exactly what I said to Jeanne on the phone – and it probably cannot be repeated here. I dropped the window, don’t think I left a comment even and have not been back to look at Kittie’s gallery since. I wanted to this card, without Kittie’s influence. So my dear, sweet friend – be flattered, great minds DO think alike!

It’s a Junge Out There Prerelease

The images are colored with Copic Markers, and the remaining scene is stamped with VersaMagic Chalk Inks. I messed up and didn’t paint the background first, so I sponged in color (ala Kittie) after the images were colored and the details were stamped. The background layer and the photo corners were stamped with the solid leaf image from the set.
