Inspiration: A Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Mosaic Moments Literary Challenge for September is
Eric Carle's A Very Hungry Caterpillar.
My youngest granddaughter has just begun to eat baby food, and the occasional food from everyone's plate...or hand if she can manage it. She loves to eat! She has been wonderful trying new foods, so most of these photos have her smiling away. Of course, she seemed to be the perfect subject for this challenge. 
I used a melted crayon technique for the date block.
I have created some painted paper tiles to mimic Carle's style and then punched a hole into each of the tiles. Did you know that it was a hole punch that inspired Eric Carle for this story? Yes!
I took additional sections and punched the segments for the caterpillar.
You can catch more details, techniques and ideas for incorporating this children's classic into a scrapbook layout on the Mosaic Moments Tips & Techniques section HERE.
Well, before you know it we will be posting all the fall tips and ideas, so see you then!
thanks for stopping in...
