Over at 'The Craft Barn' I have been watching a fun challenge grow. A few people who own blogs I follow have been entering their creations. This weekend I had a little extra time and thought why not have a play. The idea of the challenge is that every fortnight a letter will be chosen and then preferably you alter a page in a dictionary matching a image to a word chosen using that letter. I found this old primary school dictionary on the shelf that has already been altered by our daughter (she is now 17yo). :-) I hesitated as I thought she may want it for memory sake and then thought, 'no, she will just google rather than use a book'. Yes, she spied me doing a page and said that the book had lots of memories and was sad that she couldn't use it anymore. I told her I would buy her a new one if ever she needs a dictionary and that I am just adding more memories to this one. :-)
So the first letter was 'V'. I went through all my stamps and came up with VINE which I have circled. The opposite page I painted over with straight White acrylic paint. Then stamped up with this vine from a Kaisercraft Stamp set, the bird is from the same set, the butterflies are from a Stampin Up punch. I finished by chalking clouds in the background.
The current letter is 'C'. Originally I was going for cupcake but this word is not listed in this dictionary. So thought this was a good chance to use these wonderful gold 'Communication' stickers from 'The Sticker Store'. This time I painted both pages with the white paint leaving the word highlighted. I added the stickers with some word stamps I found in my collection. Finished with the various dots and some gold glow smooch spritz from Stampin Up.
So I would like to enter the above page in the 'C' challenge at the Craft Barn.
