Craft Barn alpha challenge - L (with a window!)

So the Craft Barn challenge is here again - we are on L in our dictionaries this week - but you have to use a window too...

This was going to be a bit tricky.... I decided I wanted an opening window, but didn't have a stamp big enough, so had to draw it freehand and cut it. Ok, so that wasn't too hard, it's only a square after all! I stuck three pages together to give the window some strength so hopefully they will last.

 So I decided on my word, and fixed the window round it.. it's quite a big window, but I drew and painted in, some curtains to hopefully help the illusion!
here's the window opening.... to reveal the chosen word behind...



lamp post!

Love that lamp-post! Is this a window into Narnia maybe? I know it was through a wardrobe, but lamp-posts always say Narnia to me, so magical! Julie Ann xx

Great idea - love how you've constructed your window and a great view looking out onto the lit lamppost.

Very creative making your window and lampposts also make me think of Narnia - so very cool.
