The current Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn is for 'E'. First I tried E for elephant, but didn't really like the page, as it reminded me of the work-sheets I used to make for the kids at school!
So I started again....This time with 'even numbers'. In case you have forgotten what you learned in school, this is the definition:
Even numbers are numbers that can be divided evenly by 2. An even number ends in 0,2,4,6 or 8.
There is even (no pun intended!) a song about them, which you can find here.
I used a dictionary page, which was gessoed, and then placed the fussy cut numerals onto it and sprayed over them which blue ink. When it was dry, I edged them with faux stitching. I added lots of different numerals in various sizes to make up the background, before adding the large cut out ones. I was also able to use up some peel-offs which have been in my stash for years, and this gave a bit of colour. Then I added lots of crazy faux stitching in all directions.
We had a lot of snow again in the night, so I am off now for a refreshing walk!
Take care, have a good weekend, and thanks for coming by!
