So what else does one do on a Monday morning once a fortnight? YES - The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge. This time we have the letter "A" and I had a wealth of special days to choose from.
Ash Wednesday, Ascension Day, All Saints Day, All Souls Day and of course April Fools Day.
Assuming this will be the first page of the booklet I make up when I have finished the challenge I wanted something bright and colourful so I did a jester for April Fools Day although I just had to add all the other definitions onto the page too. Made a boarder of Christmas lights for the fun of it as well!
The background was sprayed with Dylusions. The jester was found on the internet and fussy cut and coloured with my one and only Pro-marker (which was a magazine freebie yonks ago). Buttons and bells Cosmic Shimmer PVA and gold stickles for the lights.
I think I managed a bright page and now on to the housework!
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
