Good morning followers old and new, friends and all you lovely ladies in blogland. I am working at full speed this week despite being under the weather and have managed to finish my Craft Barn Alpha Challenge "J" page, no last minute dash for me this fortnight lol.
No word really jumped out at me except journey so I ran with it and this is what I ended up with, on reflection jumped is a nice word too may do another page if I have the time.
Anyone checking out my blog posts this week will have noticed I have made a few tags and the Stampers Anonymous Road Trip stamps were still out on my desk, they were perfect for my word choice I also found a case stamp with the word journey, Indigo Blu's Grand Tour III.
The definition was masked off and the tyre image stamped in frayed burlap distress ink to frame it . The car was stamped directly onto the page using black Archival ink. The journey case and the mileage gauge were stamped onto parchment paper and fussy cut. I used Archival sepia for the case and Marvey Markers for the colours on the gauge.
A mini map was made from an old map and the letter "J" was cut out from it too, you can't have a journey without a map or sweets come to that. I thought jelly babies would be fine. The map, gauge and sweets were layered on the page, the "J" added above with a stenciled "A" and "B" at either side (journey from point A to B!). Lastly the words Road Trip were stamped in black Archival over the top of the map, and a little distress ink splodged around the page.
The year has flown by, we have done 20 letter and now have only 6 left, you can still join in so pop over to the Craft Barn and check out the challenge, or just take a look at the fabulous pages created.
