Craft Barn's latest alpha/dictionary challenge came with a twist. The letter was D and the twist was we had to use pink in our art.
I was a bit worried that I would not be able to find something to recycle for this challenge, but suddenly, I realized I had received an ad in my mailbox. What could be better than to recycle junk mail?
I chose DOME as my word, because I received this image a few weeks ago, and kept it for some reason. It was sent by one of the Presidential candidates, but all I kept was the dome and background. I wasn't prepared to fussy cut the dome, but after I realized I had to use pink, I decided to cut the dome away from the lovely orange and yellow background it came with. The letter D is shown in pink and outlined in a deep metallic pink.
I outlined the word dome with the same metallic pink ink.
For those who don't live in the US, and that seems to be most of the players in the Craft Barn challenges, this is the dome to the US Capitol Building. It is actually two domes, one inside the other.
For those not familiar with my April posts, I recycle, repurpose, reuse, etc., something each day from April 1 to April 22, which I call bEARTHday, but most call Earth Day. Today is Day 6 and I recycled junk mail to make this latest Craft Barn challenge entry.
For the first time since I've played in the Craft Barn challenges (which includes the quotes/lyrics from 2 years ago), I was unable to visit everyone. For that I apologize, but real life and a slow computer and internet kept me from making it around to everyone. I will attempt to visit everyone who posted last time, and everyone who posts this time. Again, I apologize for missing even those who left comments for me. Thanks for visiting today. I'm truly grateful.
