Mars Attacks

Well I am finally blogging again! Today I am showing you a journal page I have done inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker's character (plus dog) in the film Mars Attacks.

I started by using brushos in my recycled old book journal and once dried I used memento teal, cottage ivy and black through stencils

I then added the dog, cut out from an old calendar on the right page

I then stamped out a skull from Visible image Mr Bonejangles set on white card and cut it out and stuck it on the dogs head.

I then added a phrase which came to me whilst making this page

Unfortunately this wasn't very clear to read so I decided to redo it on a brushoed page in permanent marker. I then cut it up and stuck to the page. Much happier with this.

Hope you enjoyed this page. I am adding this to the Dream in Darkness Challenge 

Thanks for looking



  1. Fabulous post, love the inspiration from Mars Attacks! Easy to follow steps, thanks for sharing!

  2. this is fabulous, love the little dog x

  3. I like the skull on the dog, nice! I know nothing about crafting, I do really like the different textures and techniques you use to make special effects. I noticed that boundaries is spelled incorrectly but better on a craft than a tattoo! I haven't seen this movie yet, I like SJP though. Thanks for sharing Zoe, xx

    1. Lol oops. In my mind that was how it was spelt, least it is only really for me anyway. Mars Attacks is a very fab cheesy sci fi, I love it. Thanks for commentingx
