Dictionary Challenge - Letter Y

So the latest letter over at The Craft Barn's dictionary challenge is Y.  There is a twist this time as well - you must use the colour yellow on your page.  For all the challenge details click HERE

My chosen word is YOGA and here are my pages:

I masked the definition of the word 'yoga'. I then used Paperartsy Fresco paints in zesty zing and smoked paprika to cover the pages using a piece of cut and dry foam.
I dried the pages and then added a thin layer of crackle glaze along the bottom of the pages.  Once dry I covered the crackle glaze with french roast fresco paint so it looked like the ground was all dry and cracked.
I traced an image of the yoga tree pose onto black paper and cut it out.  I removed the masking tape over the definition and glued the yoga image to my pages.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my dictionary pages!
