F is for

Hello there, Podgy here with you today to show you our entry for the alpha challenge over at The Craft Barn. This fortnight calls for the letter F, but with a twist; your chosen letter must be between FE and FR.
I had a scoot through our French/English dictionary for words that translate to the same in both languages, to carry on with our inadvertently self set theme. I decided on fiction, as the bears really love to read.
I asked Horace to mist my pages while he was misting his June challenge page, this saves wasting the excess mists, we also managed to create another journal background from the mop ups too!

I utilised a tag we had in our 'half made but don't know what to do with' tag box, adding the chosen word, and the dictionary definition ripped from the English -French pages, with a humungous arrow pointing down to ensure the definition could be clearly seen.

I also added an Alice stamp that we borrowed from the cub. I coloured her in rather unusual colours, to reiterate the fiction theme.

To the right hand side I added some words that I thought depicted the fiction theme, ending with, appropriately, the end! I also circled the original word just for extra oomph, whatever oomph may be!

What fun this challenge is. We can't wait to see what letter is chosen next.

If you like challenges too, do take a look at our June Challenge, as usual it's literary based but you don't have to have read the book to join in, we have lots of quotes to tempt you.
With love from the bears
