Today I've created my latest Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge entry. Unfortunately, there had to be a twist. Jane insisted we add a pearl to our Z word.
I looked long and hard for a pearl in my craft goodies, but found nothing. Now although I don't wear jewelry anymore, I wasn't about to tear apart my cultured pearl necklace I've had since I was a teen just to satisfy this silly twist.
Then I put on my thinking cap, and remembered I had iridescent pearl fabric paint, so I glopped a few "pearls" on the cross part of my Z. I've added this cross since I started coding back in the late 80s. It's a way to distinguish between a two (2) and a Z.
Here is the definition of Zipper. Unfortunately, I got a bit carried away with the dark green ink I used so you may have trouble reading the definition. Note the tiny "pearl" on the definition, too.
I dyed this white zipper, along with others when I created Chris's pages for our International Swap.
And because these are left over from that swap, I'm also entering this in Try it on Tuesday's latest challenge which is scraps and leftovers, something near and dear to my heart.
There was a mix-up on the links for our last Craft Barn link-up, and by the time they got it straightened out, my phone and internet, both serviced by AT&T, were out for several days. So I apologize for not visiting, but I hope you understand. Hopefully, I'm back on track and will be able to visit everyone this fortnight.
Before you ask, I am probably one of three persons left in the world over the age of three who does NOT own a cell phone. But I certainly appreciate all the internet support I got while I was offline. You make it all worthwhile.
