I’m currently involved in an art journal swap, where we have a OLW (one little word) as the theme for our journals. This month’s particular word was ‘metamorphosis’. I knew the owner of the journal was fond of French Bulldogs, which are often, fondly, called Frog Dogs.
I wanted to include a Frog Dog in my spread, but how to tie that in with the word Metamorphosis?
When I hit a conundrum like this, my strategy is to come up with a story–in the case, the True Story of the Frog Pince. It seems much more likely to me than the Grimm version.
