The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge Letter W

I am still really enjoying doing the Alpha Pages set by the Craft Barn every 2 weeks. There are always wonderful samples and entries to admire and inspire.

This time it is the letter W but as a twist in the tail you must use circles  on the background.


I used various distressed inks to make the background colour then dabbed on some Distressed stain to make the circle shapes. Then sprayed the whole thing with gold Glitter mist. I had forgotten to highlight the word so I scanned it and added it separately.


Sorry about the innocent drawing of a windmill- I am in my second childhood-well that's my excuse :)

Thanks for looking

Love Chrissie xx

Love all the swirls and curls (eddies of wind?), and what a great choice of word - I love windmills, both the traditional kind and, I'm afraid (though I know they're unpopular with many), the new slender energy storers!
