At last I have managed to find time to finish my altered dictionary for The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge letter "P". I don't know where the time goes, two weeks have flown by so today has been busy catching up on a few things including my dictionary page. My "P" word is poppy, Poppy Day, poppies in wheat fields, and Monet's poppy field paintings came to mind, these were the ideas in my mind and this is what I came up with..
The word poppy was highlighted with a black pen, I drew a "P" on vellum and cut round it and printed a picture of a Remembrance Day crossstitch on vellum too. The picture was placed below the word Poppy Day and the "P" above the word Poppy, the poppies were printed, coloured and fussy cut to place round the page. The background was coloured with DIs in scattered straw, broken china and a little crushed olive.
The opposite page looked bare so I painted a few poppies in a corn field, to bring in my thoughts on poppies growing in fields of wheat. Not my best page but I have had fun playing around with it today.
