Yay The Craft Barn's next letter in their Alpha Challenge is "B" so for me an easy Special Day or rather Night as I have gone for Bonfire Night. Here in the UK this is celebrated on 5th November as a thanksgiving for the failure of the gunpowder plot in 1605.
I never thought I'd be using my leaf dies as flames, first for my Pentecost Page, now for this one, but they seem to lend themselves really well. I covered my 6x6 paper with the relevant "b" pages from my dictionary and masked out the Bonfire definition before spraying with my black Dylusions! Thought I have obliterated all notion of the dictionary pages at first but fortunately not.
I piled various branches to make the fire. I cut the letters out of different pearlescent or metallic card before dotting around them with stickles and liquid pearls like fireworks. I had to add our little saying, "Remember remember the fifth of November" to finish off.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
