I finally had a chance to create my latest Craft Barn entry which is W. Since there was no twist, I chose Wings which fit nicely with Try it on Tuesday's theme I think I can fly.
And because Moo-Mania & More's latest theme is Paris, I couldn't resist creating this spread.
This spread took both sides of the book, so here is the left side. I started by covering the words with a sheet of deli paper I spritzed with Twinkling H2Os. I chose the deli paper because I wanted a bit of transparency so the words could barely peek through. I colored each of the letters using a metallic Sakura Gelly pen.
Craft Barn requires the definition, because after all, this is an alpha-dictionary challenge!
This was the fun side, while the other side was the tedious side.
I began with the letter, also colored and outlined using a Gelly pen.
I stamped a white flower with French text, added the outline of butterfly wings, then added the little girl's face to the front of the flower.
The Eiffel Tower was stamped using gold ink, and I fear it wasn't dark enough to show the Paris swirl on the stamp.
I can just hear the little girl telling the wings to fly her to the Eiffel Tower. Hope you can hear her, too. Materials used include my altered book as the substrate, spritzed deli paper, two rubber stamps, the word from my Merriam-Webster dictionary, computer generated text to which was added Gelly pens, a stamped flower petal, a punched face from a magazine, and a butterfly stencil.
Once again I visited everyone who linked to the Craft Barn's previous challenge, and look forward to seeing how others interpret the letter W.
Of course, if you want to see mixed media at its finest, please check out both Moo-Mania & More and Try it on Tuesday, where any type of project is acceptable as long as it fits their themes.
As always, I am very appreciative for your continued support of my art.
