Today I'm joining Craft Barn's latest Alpha/Dictionary Letter challenge, which this fortnight is U.
There were several words I had considered before finally focusing on Unforgettable.
The inspiration for my choice came from this word I found in a magazine.
Here is the definition that came from my Merriam-Webster pocket dictionary. It's been awhile since I've sewn on any challenge entry, and I thought this page actually needed something.
I began by sewing the word to an image I found in a 1975 fashion magazine. I then sewed the sub-assembly to a sheet of scrapbook paper. Next I added the dictionary definition, then the letter U. All that was sewn to a sheet of deli paper that I painted and was drying while I created the sub-assembly. Finally, the deli paper and sewn assembly were glued to the substrate, which is my dedicated altered book I used for this project.
This is Day 6 of AEDM. Thanks for also joining me at Craft Barn, where we now have a mere four letters left this year.
