Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter F

Evening all,

lol my apologies before I even start!! I really wasn't feeling the love with this one as I could not find a word within the challenge remit that inspired me much but I stuck to my theme and plodded through as I am determined to complete the challenge - hey ho, such is life sometimes!!

If you fancy joining in with the challenge please pop on over here for all the details and if you fancy a peek at the other amazing entries please pop on over here.

Anyhoo, my chosen word within the FE - FR twist this week is FLAMEN........

The image is from royalty free stock on Wikipedia and depicts the priests, the FLAMENS.

The flourish stamp is from a BoBunny set.

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like too. Ha ha ha after this feeble effort I wouldn't blame you if you don't.

Huge hugs

Dawn x

Fabulous page, love the background colour. Flamen is not a word I have come accross, well done a clever choice of word.

Well your page looks fab even if you couldn't find a word to float ya boat, I really like how you've put it together x

Brilliant choice of word Dawn - they say you learn something new everyday and I just did!
Love that image you've used. Even though it's a flat 2d image, the wonderful carving makes it look 3d as it probably is in real life - stunning!
That gorgous background colour you chose to use is perfect for this image. Brilliant work my friend and DON'T put yourself down please - this is a fab piece of art and lots of people should come and see it!
Big hugs as ever, enjoy the rest of your weekend too. Juliaxxx

I'm having a devil of a time getting here. With all the bad weather we've been having, my computer has been off more than on these past few days.

I was SO happy you, Karen, and BJ got together at the Extravaganza. Sounds like you gals had a good time, too.

I confess I learned a new word tonight. It's always fun when I visit an artist friend AND learn something new. Lovely book pages, lovely art, great learning experience.

BJ said...

I think you have done a fine job - it is quite hard adding a second challenge of a theme to this Alpha Challenge as well I know. BJ

Sandy said...

For someone who was uninspired this go around you sure are inspiring!! Wonderful - I wish I could see your whole dictionary when you are finished.

Karen Gist said...

Tough challenge for you Dawn but you pulled it off. I love how the carvings look as if they are coming out of the page.

Fingers crossed that the next letter will be kinder to you.


Gio said...

Beatiful page Dawn. And such a stunning word you used! You can see in real life that bas-relief in Rome!
