A creative gun

One period DD liked to play with guns. She didn’t have one so she used a stick or built one with Lego. One day she was with me in our scrapbooking/pottering room and she suddenly started to create a gun using different papers. Quite creative, I think. :)
I thought the Dash Dalton paper from October Afternoon was perfect for these pictures. I cut out two strips and doodled a frame around them. On the background paper I added some Dylusions Ink Spray using a couple of different techniques. I added some texture using modeling paste on a template and filled its contours with a black pen. The film strip is also done with a template using black gesso. I used a white gel-roll pen for its contours.
I love the jeans leaves! They are easy to make – I just doodled on a patterned paper and cut them out. I will definitely do it again!
A comment on the language for my Swedish readers: (Hon brukar kalla gevären för "skjutare" - därav texten till höger. Pistoler kallas för övrigt "pangare"...)

No challenge this time – just loads of fun! Hope you enjoyed looking! Have a nice weekend!!!
