The latest letter for the Craft Barn Alpha dictionary challenge is Y. But you have to incorporate yellow into your offering.
Not making excuses, but my dictionary is seriously lacking in Y words (when you consider I painted over some when I did my W word...) This is what I had for Y and Z
Luckily I have another dictionary I can "borrow" some pages from. I decided to do 'yacht' but also liked the idea of 'yarn' - so thought, in for a penny - why not use both!
I used a Stampscapes stamp (it's called Shimmers) and cobalt archival ink, for the waves and the flying duck formation (also Stampscapes)
After it was well stuck down (I tried!) I realised the yarn looks like the sandy beach... oh well, let's pretend that is what I meant all along...
The fibres are from a pack of mixed fibres I got years ago from The Craft Barn itself, plus some mohair that I was meant to be knitting into a jumper.. like that's ever going to happen now! I stuck them to a strip of microporous tape before sticking that to the dictionary page. The 'Y' letter is by Dylusions, from her alphabet set, stamped in saffron archival ink.
Thanks for sticking with me (literally, it's so hot!) I really didn't think I'd get there with this letter!
