Total last minute for me this time - I don't quite know where the time disappeared too!!
But today I created my pages for the letter T over in the dictionary challenge at The Craft Barn blog - click HERE for all the details for this letter.
My word this time is TRAIN:
I started by masking the definition and then covered my pages with paperartsy fresco finish paints in the following colours; guacamole, tinned peas, hey pesto, hyde park, limelight and zesty zing.
I used the brick wall stencil from that special touch with fresco pumpkin soup and smoked paprika on the background. Next I added the white chevrons using fresco snowflake and an Andy Skinner stencil.
I then used stamps from the Stampendous railroad set with black versafine ink to add the images of the map, timetable, ticket and trains.
I unmasked the definition but decided it looked too stark against the background so I added some of the fresco translucent paints (zesty zing and limelight) to blend it in to the background. I then added a border around the definition with a pencil and smudged it with my finger.
To finish off the pages I added renaissance treasure gold around the edges with my finger and smudged it around.
Thanks for stopping by today, please feel free to leave a comment so I know you dropped by!
