Hello there, Podgy here with you today, I voted myself creator of the alpha page for the challenge over at The Craft Barn.
The chosen letter this fortnight is K, and due to our inadvertent theme of using only words that translate to the same in both languages, I had only 2 words to choose from: Ketchup and Karate (it's a mini dictionary!) I wanted to use karate as my word, but the other bears said that was a little narcissistic of me, and refused to take a picture of me posing in my suit. I think they realised I'm just far too gorgeous and were jealous!!!
Anyway, that left me with one word - ketchup, so after an Internet search for suitable images, I began creating. First I cut a picnic blanket from our
Spellbinders Nestabilities die
Ooh, how picnicky!
Next, I dabbed Picket Fence distress stain over the dictionary pages to dull the other words.
I selected the only red distress stain we have
Covered my ketchup word
And began a splatathon, ooh how cathartic. If you wish to release some frustration I recommend it, just bash the stain onto the page, hard!
I added some letters, in red of course, to complete the page. I circled the chosen word and definition, to make sure it was obvious on the page.
I then added a ketchupy kind of word.
Here's a close up, this was fun, even if I didn't get to feature in the actual dictionary.
With love from the bears
