in the making of this journal page!! Stressed a little maybe, frustrated probably but not hurt!! They will just have to go make another web but then isn't that what spiders are for!?

I say this because the web in the background of this is an ACTUAL spider web.

How to do that?

1. Find a web in a suitable position ie. one where you can a piece of card either side of it
3. Hold a piece of scrap paper behind the web and spray with an ink, a dark colour is best

4. Take two pieces of white card and catrefully trap the web between them
5. Open the cards to reveal a web imprint

Some webs will come out better than others so do a few till you get one you like.......oh yes, each web gives 2 impressions!

The fairy here is a PAPERARTSY stamp (from Nut & Meg 6) that is intended to be used as a Christmas image but why just use it for that!!? Oh yes, her pointy hat is the top of a Christmas tree........again Paperartsy.

Wonder what the spider thinks Sue!! Great idea though, and it looks fantastic on your card.

That is so clever Sue, but I don't think I'd be able to get that close to a web!!! EEEEk!!!

Fab idea Sue. If I did it I'd have to make very sure no spiders were lurking as they are NOT my favourite thing.
Your journal page is really great.

How on EARTH did you ever think of that!??! brilliant!
However, as a very large one has just crawled up my leg and bitten me (!!!!) I don't think I would be kind enough to shoo him away - he might just find himself sprayed with ink as well. (only joking) (or am I, it's starting to hurt like billy-oh) Love that fairy!

What a fantastic idea!
There's no shortage of webs around here to have a few goes at trying this ( just a shortage of human dusters ;))

The page is fab.
