C is for.......

Another dictionary page for the Craft Barn challenge, good way to while away a very snowy afternoon playing with paints and inks. One thing I know is that if I am going to continue with this challenge I need some more stencils! apart from the flourishes what I've used on here is a bit of sequin waste and a bit of plasterers jointing tape. I can't remember whose stamp it is, I've had it quite a while,the tower and the words are from various sets. I still can't bring myself to use the new dictionary I bought especially so its another page from a very old tattered,falling to bits one. I was brought up to respect books and even though I have bought a few old hard backs with the idea of ripping them up they are still sitting on my bookshelf.

  6. Very ooh la la Joan, the background is fabulous, gorgeous colours and love the can can ladies too. I am the same when it comes to ripping up books, so I buy pages that someone else has ripped out instead...... Hugs, Anne x

  8. Hello Joan
    Absolutely delightful, it is just like an advert for a show, it feels fun and happy.
    It must be our generation Joan as I have the same thoughts where books are concerned.
