Rain at OOAH

Hi everybody!
This is my second week as guest designer at OOAH and our theme this week is rain. Well, this should have been quite easy, as we have had a lot of rain this summer, but I still had to think what to do, as I did not want to bring out Mr Umbrella Man again. So I chose a big, fat, green frog, enjoying the rain while sheltering under his red 'umbrella'. I have used an image from Gecko Galz, which I coloured with prismalos and gel pens. I took a sheet of pretty DP, and fussy cut around the flowers on the left, making a sort of slit to fit the frog into, and  a frame for my image, which I mounted onto a piece of black paper beforehand. I added a few gem-stones and a dragonfly as decoration.




And before I forget, here is my 'Italy' tag from Tag Tuesday. Mr Umbrella man has smuggled himself into the picture again!



I was pleased to see I had been chosen for the top 3 at  the Rogue Rebel Blog for my Moo card which I entered into their 'Slender Bender' Challenge.

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  1. I do like your frog sheltering under his toadstool, what a clever interpretation of "Rain". I like Mr. Umbrella Man cut out of printed paper. We could do with some rain here.

  6. I think Mr. Umbrella Man got a little jealous of Mr. Frog! Both are just wonderful!

  7. That's soooo right - he was furious at not being chosen for the rain card!

  14. I really loved your work for the Alpha Dictionary Challenge, so I decided to pop over from Monique's blog and take a look at what you had been doing. I love the frog - terrific colour and detail and that is a really original take on 'Mr Umbrella Man' - love the images you've combined with him too. Really enjoyed my visit. Julie Ann x
