The final Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary letter, P has been posted. I was afraid to create it too soon for fear we'd have something off the wall, like a dragonfly or a specific color we had to use.
Thankfully Mickie didn't impose any twist, so I was free to create anything I desired.
There were many, many definitions of pitch, so I circled the one that most closely matched the definition I was illustrating. As for perfect, there are a few people in this world who have perfect pitch when it comes to singing. I'm not one of those people, but I can carry a decent tune and harmonize with the best of them.
I actually started this piece years ago. I cut out the little girl, and accidentally dropped some packing tape on a piece of sheet music. That's when I got the idea to add it to her head. It was a much better transfer than last week's mailman.
I created the background by swiping various colors of acrylic paint with a faux credit card. Then I added the music note and the music ribbon (which is paper with wire edges). Over that I placed my letter which I learned is not mandatory, but which I have included throughout the challenge.
One final look at the little girl with the perfect pitch (letters are plastic) and this entry as well as this challenge is complete.
I decided to create a wrap-up piece to share the work I created this year for the Craft Barn.
The problem with using the mosaic maker I use (Big Huge Labs), there is no way to divide 26 into equal rows and columns. So here are the previous 25 entries to go with this week's entry.
Once again, I really enjoyed this year at the Craft Barn. I enjoyed the camaraderie and was thrilled when so many of you visited and saw my meager offerings. I'm quite sure I'm no better at stamping than I was at the beginning of the year, but I have really enjoyed seeing all the stamping projects most of you have created. Thanks to each and every Craft Barn participant for your generous comments and caring attitude. Thanks to Mickie for visiting each month after she took over, and Jane, who helped when I won the fortnightly prize. Thanks to all my other readers, followers, and friends who followed me on this year long journey. You have all been a godsend!
