The latest Craft Barn alpha/dictionary letter is C. Thankfully there were no twists, because I fluctuated back and forth among several words, all of which dealt with a drink. I first thought of caffeine, then coffee,
when I finally decided on the word "Cup."
I knew I had a way to illustrate cups, so that's what I went for.
Here's my American Heritage Dictionary's definition of a cup.
I knew as soon as I made the first black mark that I had made a mistake. But it was too late to stop, so I outlined one stack, but not the rest.
I began by painting a sheet of deli paper with lavender and lime green paint. After it was dry, I adhered it to the book page with white PVA glue. I cut a napkin in pieces and glued the top (decorated) sheet only to the deli paper using a glue stick. I added a large gifted dimensional C and the required definition to the center of the page.
I was back on track with our previous entry and was able to visit everyone again. I was unable to leave comments on Facebook, because I'm not a member and will probably never be.
Thanks for joining me for this latest Craft Barn challenge, and thanks for your continued support of my art.
