I printed them off, flipped the page and taped it to my card stock, then cut them out backwards! Lol I don't know why..I could have cut them out forwards..
Haha I barely remember that book! I need to read it again!
I want to but I'm still trying to figure out how I can represent that in a silhouette ^.^

TWELVE?! Holy monkeys, that's a lot!

This is awesome. You, my dear, should become a silhouette artist full time. You have such an amazing skill for it. (If I've pointed that out before, I don't care. I'll just say it over and over until you become one. No pressure, of course. I'll just die if you don't.)

Haha I really go through those glue dots xD and card stock.. And exacto blades :D

Thank you so much!:iconglompglompplz::hug::heart::heart::heart::D:D
Really, the only reason I started doing these is because I met a silhouette artist in Florida and it looked like so much fun I had to try it xD (story time later kiddos ^.^ maybe a future journal haha)

(I'd love to be a full time artist! Lol I don't think I'm ready yet, but I'm going to definatly keep practicing xD I don't see myself doing anything but art, when I imagine cubicles I want to shoot my foot lol)
P.s. please, don't die. Cause I'll kill you if you do. You can't draw amazingly if your dead..or a zombie..or a dinosaur. Dinosaur zombies.. Ok I'm rambling.. But THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

(whoa this is a long comment o.o)

That WAS a long comment, and it was also an awesome comment.

I can imagine how much cardstock you go through. And glue. And exacto blades. Craziness. I, myself, eat up drawing paper like mad.

That's great! I've always enjoyed art, but I don't see myself doing it as anything more than a hobby. I've got that whole big dream o' mine of publishing a novel, so that's first priority. You keep going with that art though. You better be a full-fledged artist in six years or I'mma kill someone! (And please don't shoot yourself in the foot. That's counterproductive.)

DINO ZOMBIE! Hmmm. I might be able to still do art. But not if I was a T-Rex zombie. Those small arms and all....Rambling. But you're welcome!

Long comments rock. Get ready for another,

We're not being that great of a help when it comes to saving trees..

Ooo I want to read your book! I've done some writing but I've gotten to 5 half started books and I don't think I'll ever finish one D:
Please don't kill anyone, well kill a plant if you have to, but we're really going to stir up the eco-activists
(I'll shoot a shoe then, no foot)

Plus if you were a dino, your eyes would be on either side of your head. You'd have to turn a lot. Sounds exhausting.
At least your name, Ettysaurus, would make sense

No, we're not that great of a help. Sigh. It's not our fault that paper is so amazing.

I want to read my book too! Haha! Just a little joke towards myself there. BECAUSE I'VE REVISED IT THREE TIMES. Anyway, holy caps lock Batman. And I won't kill anyone, and it won't matter if the eco-activists get mad at us. They'll already be pretty pissed because of the tree thing.

(You go! Shoot that shoe! DO IT!)

Yeah, really, Ettysaurus would make more sense then. But I'm very prone to motion sickness. So if I had to spin my head around a lot, I'd be barfing all the time. Other than that, being a dino would be cool.

Whoa! 3 times? Dang. What's it about?
We can ward them off with tofu.

(I WILL!) :rofl:

How can you stand spinny chairs!? They're like a roller coaster!

Totally. They introduced the whole addiction to paper.

Yeah. THREE TIMES. I fail, Pearly-face. And it's about an earth-controlling woman and her quest to stop a man from reviving an ancient evil through a spell that requires human sacrifice. (Yeah, I suck at summarizing, but that's the whole idea.) Here's :iconsmall-paper:'s beautiful drawing of my main characters she did for me: [link]

YEY! TOFU!

(GOOD!)

Man, don't even mention spinny chairs. They give me...issues. Issues, dude. ISSUES!! :iconimconstipatedplz:
