WOYWW #229 - October Frog Moon!

Strange title eh? Just sums up my crafting this week, that's all.

Happy WOYWW everyone.

I made my Alpha Challenge page with the letter "L" for Leap Day, hence the frogs leaping around behind the window which was the "twist" this time.

Then my Timmy Tag of "Blue Moon" - about time I used the royal blue glitter I had.





Lastly, a page in my 12 months journal for October. I tried the paint, PVA, paint crackle technique but it didn't work so I topped it all with some Ranger Crackle Paint which did the trick. Added a few pieces I had lying around and the cutting from a magazine which grabbed me.

There are some wonderful makes on your desk this week. Sadly we stopped the alpha challenge as we had too much to keep up with, but we love seeing what you've done with the letters.

Great projects, BJ, I love the October page, the colours are gorgeous. What a shame you couldn't get the PVA crackle to work, it looks really great when it does and is so cheap!!!
