Room with a View

Time for another letter for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn this time it is the letter "L" with a twist there has to be  a window included.  Straight away I knew my word was going to be Landscape looking out through a window, for some silly reason I forgot to post the finished page and have only just realized. must be an age thing but better late than never though as I haven't missed a letter so far.......

I started by cutting out a "window" from the pages on the right and then glued them together.  The landscape was stamped using Sheena Douglass set of stamps in  the A Little Bit Sketchy range and painted with distress inks and attached .  A window was cut using Spellbinders die in brown card and I cut up a frame which was in my bit box into pieces to make curtains, the ornate pieces I cut from the window die were used to highlight the word "Landscape"

At the bottom of the left page was the word " landing stage" and as the set of stamps I was using had a landing stage stamp I just had to use it didn't I!  So this was stamped in vintage photo distress ink and with water I dragged the colour into the design added a little water with faded jeans

It is nearly time for  another letter to be announced will it have a twist or won't it, all will be revealed on Sunday not long to wait I am still enjoying this challenge and visiting all the other entries is such fun and everyone has great ideas even when the words are the same the pages are so different.  I'm off to link mine and have a good look round over the next day or so. 
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my jumping stickman it was such a fun page to do.

 thanks for looking.
'till next time


  1. Hi Maggie another fabulous page. What a beautiful set of stamps and you were able to use two sets and colour them so well. Lucky you, to know what word, I had dozens that I couldn't get right in my head let alone put on paper - but the last minute was drawing near and inspiration struck thank goodness. Indeed what will the next letter be?

  2. Great pages Maggie, lovely images and your window is great.MMx

  3. A lovely DPS. Great ideas and you've included 2 definitions.

  4. Love how you have added the landing stage as well as the gorgeous window. Great way to frame the landscape definition too. BJ

  5. Terrific pages Maggie. Love the word and the way you can see it illustrated through the window.
