I leave for college in a week, but all of my friends have already left. As a result, I am sitting around and wicked bored. So, I decided to take some cool evolutionary sketches of animal fetuses by Earst Haeckel.

My first attempt was with freezer paper. Note: Do not attempt to iron a notebook. It doesn't really work and you'll ruin it. The stencil turned out great, but now the notebook is all bubbley and kinda unusable.





Second and best attempt. It's a chicken fetus!




Third attempt was bad- it was a turtle fetus. I wiped it off and started over.



My second attempt at the piggy fetus:



It doesn't really look like a pig, but it's cute.

I like them, and am looking forward to using them.

Nice - clever and unique.  You'll sure know which notebooks are yours. 

(And you are so right about iron-ons on notebooks - holds true for scrapbook albums as well - even if they seem like they are cloth over fiberboard, there is some secret plastic-y item under those covers that does not like heat!)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Fantastic imagery! What goes better with school than fetuses? Beats me. And lesson well-learned about ironing on meltable surfaces, I assume? Wink
