I saved a bunch of the paper spiders, and I have wanted to scrap them for several months. I originally envisioned extracted images of 20 or so spiders, kind of piled and overlapping on the page. But I also wanted to do something along the theme of "the evolution of spiders" because I had made several different styles, and they seemed to have an evolving look: quick scribbles, more detailed sketches, and paper pieced spiders. In the end, I did not find a way to get all those ideas down in one page. I have several layouts instead. Here they are. They are my current favorites.
This first one gives the story about how motherhood made me into a pretty darn good spider maker.

For this second page, I went with the evolution theme. I intentionally chose different spiders in this page to get as many different ones as possible. Disclaimer: the spiders show here are not actually in chronological order of creation.

This last one is a game where you enact Little Miss Muffet with props and repeat it over and over again. I was actually planning to sit there and keep going to learn just how long he would repeat this game, but then I got the idea of taking photographs. I really like the dramatic irony here. I was pleased that I got a photo with the look I was going for.

By the way, Miller is still obsessed with spiders, but I haven't had to make any new ones in months. I guess having 20 or so on hand in a box is kinda useful that way. Oh, and one more thing, I have a newfound appreciation for adhesive tape. I normally don't like to tape things ... because you can see the tape, and that bothers me ... but on a paper spider it works. The tape is part of the look. You should try it.
