Alpha Challenge Letter "U" - Upholstery



Well just back from holiday and have the Alpha Challenge to do with only a few days to go.  The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge letter is "U", my chosen word is Upholstery.

My pages were made using images of chairs with different coloured upholstery, buttons covered with fabric, upholstery  needles and swatches of upholstery fabric (printed paper).  The black and white images were coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut before adding to the page.  The patterned papers were cut out using pinking shears and grouped together to give the impression of colour swatches, I added contrasting covered buttons and the upholstery needles I had in my sewing box.  The letter "U" was cut from patterned paper and the definition outlined with black ink.

A very rushed page but needs must and I do want to get my entry in before Sunday.

I do like your pages Sylv, and you fooled me with your paper/fabric swatches....LOL! I get just as excited over patterned fabrics as I do paper.

Great job.The pressure to get the page done when time is running out is very taxing.A great take on the word and well done with that fussy cutting, not my favourite activity.
