The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is M

Third post from me today-I think I will call Monday 'posting day' as I seem to make things for the challenges over the weekend.

This time at the The Craft Barn the letter is M and there are lots of great M words to inspire you for your pages but they must begin with 'ma' or 'me'. I got an old dictionary at last from a charity shop and it is much clearer than mine that I use for the proper purpose so the scanning looks sharper.

I chose the word Magic-I think this was influenced by the fact that we are doing 4 jigsaws with that theme. The back was sprayed with various colours the I used a bit of mesh to add some extra colour. I printed the images onto the paper when it was dry and coloured them with some felt tip pens. I also drew the flashes and the M. The black square was a big mistake as it was supposed to be a shape edged with black but I dropped the black ink pad. I added a bit of colour and a few silver stars and the word magic so I hope it looks ok now.

Great ideas from the DT so why not pop along and look, then have a go.

Love Chrissie xx
