The Digit-al Dozen does Books: Charlotte’s Web

It’s Day 3 of the March Digital Dozen and this month we’re tackling the Books theme. The book I chose for my Day 3 mani is one we all know and love. I mean who didn’t get Charlotte’s Web read to them a half dozen times as a child? Read on…

Charlotte’s Web by EB White

As I was remembering this sweet story I was surprised to realize that it correlates so much to my life now 30 years later. You see over the last year or so I have gotten involved with volunteering at a local pig sanctuary, when a friend was given the sanctuary director job. I have been astounded and amazed by what smart emotional animals they are. Along with that I knew I had to cut pork out of my diet, which was quite easy once I made the choice. So Charlotte’s Web means as much in my life today as it did way back then, or perhaps more.

For this mani I started with a base of Pahlish Tallgrass Prairie for the green on the book cover. Then using BP-L086 I stamped the various farm images (first finger is a fluffy lamb if you couldn’t tell). I originally planned to just stamp a spider on, but for whatever reason I couldn’t get a clean transfer. I remembered having this spider charm and thought I would give it a try rather than digging through my mess office to find my other halloween stamping plates. I think it ended up being perfect since Charlotte was a larger than life spider anyway!
