Craft Barn's latest alpha/dictionary letter is Y. Thankfully there is no twist, or I would never have been able to pick Yellow.
There were lots of choices for Y, but I had nothing I could use to illustrate any of the letters I wanted to use. I went through my magazine images, and my very few stamps. I finally came up with this. At least I knew I could find a way to illustrate the word.
I only enlarged the parts I wasn't sure would show on the page. I pointed out that yellow is a primary color and what a primary color is.
Since the background was purple, I wanted to explain why I chose it.
The word, which doesn't show too well, was created with stickers.
I painted the large yellow circle, then cut it out. I thought the definition was wimpy, so I wanted to be sure everyone knew what yellow represented, at least on the color wheel.
And finally, the letter "Y."
For this entry, I started by painting the purple using a purple pen. Computer generated text was added to a sheet of heavy card stock I had in my stash. As mentioned earlier, the circle was painted, then punched out. Finally, I added the dictionary definition and the various sticker letters.
Thanks for joining me at the Craft Barn with their latest letter Y. Although I had planned a different post today, I misjudged how long it was going to take to create the piece I wanted to make for another challenge. Part of the problem is, my craft room is freezing right now, and I didn't want to spend that long there. So, again, thanks for your visit. It truly means the world to me.
See you at the Craft Barn. Only two more letters to go!
