Alpha challenge - C

I chose Cog this time for my entry in the  altered dictionary page  Alpha challenge over at the Craft Barn mainly because it could be 'steampunked - gently of course in a feminine style with this stamp from Hampton Arts.

Vintage Arches.

I brought these Tando Gothic Arch frames home, from the shop, with a vague idea of what to do with them and as usual did something totally different, Viv had sent me some pics from her cabinet card collection and i used two prints from these and came up with these vintage arches, i used stamps and stencils along with fabric and lace!!they now stand proudly in the shop window!

A Village is.............

The craft barn is having an Alpha Challenge where you can alter a dictionary with journal pages or take a page out and insert it into a journal, the first letter to work with is V so I used dylusions inks on the dictionary page, then stenciled over it with the Tando Wonky street mask and added dictionary page houses with fancy roofs, there is the dictionary definition for Village and the quote is - A village is a house of glass, where nothing unobserved may pass - very true I think!! I am using a page from an old dictionary and sticking it into a journal.

A nearly tag

I put this tag together from the new Creative Expressions project book - it turned out to be a good example of what you can do when you don't have the exact stamps - the colour is correct and that's about it so it's nearly right.

Vintage Canvas

This canvas is covered with 'hessian' (actually a cut up potato bag) then a gessoed , painted and stamped piece of backing paper, onto this I added a printed lady and  fabric and lace etc.

Inspired by...........

I made this tag before christmas and it was inspired by one Andy Skinner had made , not exactly the same but similiar. I'm only just able to post it due to google being at war with my pictures but thanks to Mrs A this should be posted.
