Happy May 1st! I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you. This time, we are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis. Here’s the itinerary.
When I first saw this itinerary, I pictured an undead Sctottsman playing bagpipes, that were turning into snakes. I don’t know…I guess I was having residual thoughts of the amazing St. Patty’s Day parade we went to. LOTS of Irishman in kilts playin’ those amazing pipes. So why did I think of a Scottsman? Probably because our very own Suzi is from Scotland! I know…my mind works in strange ways… Anyway. Since Rick is sponsoring this challenge, I decided to ask him if he would draw my odd character. Well, and hour and a half after I sent the request, I got EXACTLY what I had imagined! Actually, he is even better than I imagined!
Isn’t he AMAZING?! I saw him and wondered how Rick got into my brain and pulled out what I envisioned!
I colored him with alcohol markers. And I had a lot of fun doing it! My journaling is simply about the itinerary, and the story behind this creep-tastic fella. I used a couple of stencils on my background. The rose is from Dreamweaver and the web is from Stencil Girl.
Now it’s time for you to head off into the sunset. But please be sure to visit the DICC blog to see what the rest of the team came up with. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Wow, Alison! I think I need to pin this to my "Weird and Wonderful" board on Pinterest! Awesome image, and great background (esp the rose!).

I love it! The background looks amazing, and that image is just too awesome.:)
My hubby is a piper, and there are days he comes home from a job looking kind of a lot like this! Thanks for sharing your weird/wonderful ideal with us!
