P is for Pear

Another altered page for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn this fortnight the letter is P and Pear popped into my head first  and knowing I had a lovely Pear stamp in my stash the decision was the easy part finding time to actually make my page has been a challenge, so today as it is freeeeeeezing cold and the wind is blowing and snow still on the ground I hibernated and managed to do some crafting although my little room of craft was chilly today the wind is blowing straight at it and the radiator was only turned low so I cranked up the rad and got crafting.

 
 
Stamp is from Creative Expressions designed and drawn by Sheena Douglass, for the colour I used Distress Ink vintage photo to stamp Pear and  distress markers directly onto image and also scribbled onto my acrylic block added  water making a wash, colours used dried marigold, vintage photo, brushed corduroy, peeled paint. 
 
I may be back with another page which is almost complete if I have time, thanks for looking and for all the lovely comments left for my last page Marigold, I really appreciate them and the your time. I will be visiting all the entries I love to see what everyone has done but try not to look before I have done my page and it is soooooo difficult to resist all the lovely entries......so off to get a cuppa and I'm going browsing  see you all later.
