My Dogs Rule Page... The process.



This is my completed page inside the Dog Rules Book.
Each one is a little different. I created 14 pug painting pages and digitally added a party hat. I collaged collars on each pug and attached a handmade pug charm.
I also tied silk ribbons all along the outside of each page and put pop up baby Emmitts and a personalized breed ATC of each artist's favorite dog on the back.






I really enjoyed each step of this wonderful project!

Very cool Melissa! Did EmmyPants help a lot, or just a little? We are just curious because we are see a lot of pug influence in your work. We're real observant that way.
