Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letters X, I, and a very late S................

Evening all,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas? Much joy and laughter in my household as you can imagine with my 2 tiddlies tee hee. The only stress came when I was cooking Christmas lunch for my Mum and Step-Dad - lol no pressure!!!!! Ha ha ha I have already told them that if they want to come again next year that it will be a turkey stew or a roll of brisket in the slow-cooker!!!!!!!!!

Anyhoo, in-between the madness I did manage to get my Alpha entries finished, albeit the S being very late. Whoop whoop, all finished now apart from the cover. Fingers crossed I will get that done too over the next few days!!!

I would like to say a huge thank-you to Izzy, Karen and Gio (as well as the rest of the design team who contributed when they could) for providing the challenge and the wonderful inspiration every fortnight - YOU LADIES ROCK x x x x.

Ha ha ha ha bring on the 2014 challenge now, I can't wait to find out more!!!!!!!!!!

If you fancy a peek at the rest of the final entries in this fab challenge please pop on over HERE.


I for ICARUS


X for XANTHUS

and


S for SATURN

All images are from Google and are of ancient carvings, illustrations and paintings.
Stencils used are from Tando Creative, TCW and Tim Holtz.
Various acrylic paints, distress inks and gel pens used too.

Many Thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts mean the world.

Huge hugs 

Dawn x x x x

Way Hey at last, super pages and well worth the wait. Love how you incorporate the paintings, they look like you have done them - LOL. Although too much red cape if you ask me! Sigh. BJ
