Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter H

Evening all,

lol it seems like an age since I last blogged! Half-term and life in general has left me with little time to craft lately but I have managed to squeeze this one in by the skin of my teeth!!

If you would like to see what this challenge is all about (thanks Craft Barn peeps, having so much fun with this) please pop on over here and for a peek at all the other H entries please pop on over here.

Tee hee, lots of artistic licence applied here!!  My chosen word is HERALD (messenger) and as HERMES was the 'herald' of the Gods I have managed to stick to my theme.

There are quite a few photos as I got a bit carried away!! Here you go................



I chose to do a simple 'painty' pocket page so that I could slot in some 'messages'.  The Hermes image was found via Google and is from a book called Manual of Mythology written by Alexander S. Murray, printed in 1895.

Muppet that I am, I forgot to mask off the original definition but it is still visible under the base glaze (outlined in black to be on the safe side lol)!!........


I made up a couple of tags........



Some mini envelopes (tee hee couldn't help myself with the addresses!!) and 'letters' using a Papermania capsule collection pad........





and finally altered a record card to hold an amazing quote I found........


The stamps used were from Paperartsy, see-d's, Tim Holtz, Andy Skinner and Kanban.
All other quotes were found on The Quote Garden.

Lol, getting all excited in anticipation of the next letter now!!

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.  Your time and feedback is so gratefully received.

Huge huggles
