Here I am with my second post for today as I have been crafting most of the day because we got rain again and also there is rain at Queen's so the tennis hasn't started there today so far. I'm afraid sport watching takes over from crafting for me.
The first page I made was for The Craft Room Alpha Challenge where the letter for this time is U. A difficult letter to find anything to illustrate but I found the word Umiak and it is a small boat used by Eskimo women. Remind me not to grumble when I have to walk into town for a bit of shopping when there is a covering of snow.
I painted the page with H20 paints then coloured the picture I found online-the shapes with the words are supposed to be ice blocks.
The second page is for the challenge at the House of Bears -it is a great challenge with lots of quotes from Jane Eyre and you chose one to illustrate. You can make anything you like so long as it fits the theme.
I was in a weird mood so used a photograph of myself and played around with it in Paint Shop Pro to make 'me' look from another world as the quote I have chosen is
“You have rather the look of another world. I marveled where you had got that sort of face.”
This is the pic I used and I used all sorts of digi brushes to make it different.
Everything else is stamped and coloured to create my own idea of another world. My ideal place would be something like the film Avatar but without the violence and mindless destruction.
Hope your day is going well
Love Chrissie xx
