- The Alpha challenge.. Every other Sunday (starting last week on 6th January) they will give you a letter of the alphabet and you decide on a word starting with that letter, and alter the page in your dictionary with that word on it. Check here for all the important details!!
The first letter is 'V'. I scoured charity shops for a suitable dictionary - should have got the first one I saw because when I went back they'd ALL gone... so I am using my Dictionary/Thesauras (half of it is a proper normal dictionary, and the back half is the thesauras which gives you synonyms for the word you looked up)
I then had to decide on a word - a word that I could illustrate!! I went for VEHICLE because I have some stamps of cars (thanks Wendy Vecchi!!) and this is the result.
So, apart from 'journey' (Tim Holtz) stamps are by Wendy Vecchi. I used sky Paperartsy Fresco paint on the page, and blue archival ink, and black soot distress ink.
Took a couple of stickers and an alphabet stencil from my stash supplies to emphasise which letter we're starting with - and I hope YOU come with me on my alpha challenge too... thanks to the Craft Barn - I can see some fun ahead!
Sorry I had such trouble with the camera, it is so gloomy here in Surrey today!
