Good afternoon everyone, and a big welcome to my new followers. What a fabulous day we are having here in Somerset, a shame to be in crafting but it has to be done. Today I completed my "F" page for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge, my chosen word/words are fished, fishing, fishes.
I started my page by adding a silhouette of a fisherman(boy) and his dog, having added this I decided to keep the theme black and white. I gathered together some fishing associated bits and pieces from the internet, then thought how to place them on my page.
Using hands cut from a piece of Docrafts Chronology paper (darkened a little with black soot DI) I placed a fish in the middle of them and the word whopper, this was placed underneath the "fisherman's tale definition. In drew round the fished definition bringing the line down to a float, did the same with the "F" and a smaller floats. The fly was also attached to a drawn casting line. A ruler (free stamp from Craft Stamper years ago) was stamped under the (very large) fish and also down the "F". Lastly I added the fishing associated words which had been printed on the computer and a little black soot DI to highlight areas.
I am quite pleased with this page, it would be my dad's birthday this month as well as Father's Day and as he was a keen fisherman for most of his life, my page is dedicated to him.
Hope you all enjoy the nice weather we are having, I am away for a few weeks so hope it continues.
