The Craft Barn-letter H


This must be a record for me three posts in one morning--I will need to go for a lie down.

The letter this time for The Craft Barn dictionary challenge is H. Lots of great words to chose from on the H pages and I chose Head.


For the background I used various colours of ink sponged onto the paper then I sprayed it with  Cosmic glitter mist-Ancient Copper.

I am still looking for a dictionary to use and still scanning the pages from our one in the bookcase, so far. This meant I could make the word I was using bigger to show it up on the page. The right hand page is also all 'head' words with so many things to chose.

The head on the left is me-digitally messed about with and the one on the right is a head I drew in Paint Shop Pro many years ago when we used to call them 'tubes'.

I used a couple of stencils--the swirly one is from Imagination Crafts and the music one from Dreamweaver.. The letters I have had for years and never used.

Nice to have you drop in today-it is always lovely to have you here.

Love Chrissie xx
