I was rereading On The Road recently, and had to look up dingledodies – I’m pretty sure I had to look it up the first time I rad it, but NOT sure I found it, as that would have been before t’internet. Also interesting to find Russell Howard has a comedy DVD using this in the title. Who knew?
Anyway, t’internet tells me:
Dingledodies are those friends or acquaintances who you cannot help but be uplifted, enlightened or cheered up by – those people who put the light in your life. They are the special people who never fail to put a smile on your face, because of some series of strange habits or quirks unique only to them.
I started off thinking I would use this for the SDC, which is TAGS, but TAGS covered up too much of the Gelli print background, so I just went ahead and made it but didn’t submit it for the challenge. I just stamped an array or creepy folk on some lighter Gelli prints and cut them out. I actually like the effect it gives.
So here is the completed book:
