Scrapbook Layout 6: Home Sweet Home

This "Home Sweet Home" layout is made with several of DCWV's stacks: Garden Party, Nursery - Baby Boy, Nursery- Baby Girl, and Animal Crackers; all the paper piecings were edged with ColorBox Pigment Ink (Bright).  This layout features a tear bear rooster, hen, and baby chicks; all the tear bear animals were hand-torn out of mulberry paper, then fluffed for a fuzzy texture.

I've layered the flowers in an assortment of yellow shades to give a cohesive look while still offering variety.

Scrapbook Tear Bears 3.1-3.3: Toy Story 2

Toy Story 2 is a popular beloved movie, a sequel often said to be better than the original.  I have created the characters from Woody's Roundup:  Woody (the rootin-est tootin-est cowboy in the wild wild west), Jessie (the yodeling cowgirl), and Bullseye (Woody's horse and sidekick).

These tear bears are very popular, and are available for sale on my facebook page.  Tear bears are perfect for embellishing scrapbook pages or handmade cards; wouldn't these tear bears would be so cute to finish a Toy Story 2, Woody's Roundup, or cowboy-themed layout?

All tear bear characters were designed and pieced together without a template or stencil.  Each character was hand-torn, hand-fluffed, and shaded with chalk for dimension and personality.  Supplies to create the Toy Story 2 characters included mulberry paper, cardstock paper, and yarn.

Who is your favorite character from the movie?
A scarf, holster, striped shirt, and cowhide vest are essential in capturing Woody.

Glitter stitching, white tassles, cowhide pants, and braided hair were all included; must not leave out details! 

Bullseye was intimidating to attempt, especially since this character was not my typical tear "bear" but fortunately, it came out successful.
