Alpha Challenge...


Here I am again with my altered dictionary page for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn
The letter for this fortnight is "E". after flicking through the E section of my dictionary this word jumped out at me....elevenses.......I wonder why....lol.......so this is what I have done


I splashed distress stains over my pages stormy sky dried marigold and antique linen, then I splattered a few spots, next came the pictures from a magazine, then to fill in the spaces I sorted out some stamps from my Tim Holtz collection stamped in Adirondack express...fitting I thought...lol

 
I added a few words and lastly covered everything with Ranger stick and seal which will protect the page.
 
I have already started on another page not too happy about the outcome so far.........but may show later if not have another word too..........so many choices............so you may see another entry......lol.
 
I am really enjoying this challenge and would like to thank everyone who visited me and left wonderful comments..........Thank you they all mean a lot to me!   I enjoy visiting everyone as much as I do making my pages so much talent and every page/project is so different.

'till next time
