Craft Barn alpha Challenge #8 Letter is W.........and a little bit of Catchup

And so the 8th letter of the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is W with the added twist of using circles in the background... My word is Wings ...my dictionary definition is  projecting part enabling a bird, insect or bat to fly...

The large wings and text stamps are by Sheena Douglas, Fantasy birds are from Chocolate Baroque, dragonfly & butterfly stamps are from Iindigoblu. Background was created with distress inks through Stampsaway Circles mask, I then used Indigoblu's Bubbles stamp as I thought the masked background wouldn't show up enough in a photo. My song title this time is 'Wind beneath my Wings'

Definition of WING from my dictionary

P.S ..I also took the opportunity to play catch up ... as I have the first 6 letters to do this is going to be work in progress. Today my extra letter was C .... for Circles, Cogs, Clock & Compass.

 Pages were created by laying down some colour and then spraying through Ali's masks with Gold mister and Red firefly cosmic shimmer mister. I then simply added the dictionary meanings of my words in circles in the gaps left by the mask, together with some random words connected to time and compass.

Cogs, Circles & Compass page

I am still feeling my way with journalling but I did feel a bit more random doing these pages .. usually my crafting is quite controlled and thought out. I really enjoyed the freedom to do whatever came into my head. I passed a lovely afternoon getting messy .... that's all xxx Annie
