Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - H
The fourth letter for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is H. I did want to do House/Home but then I spotted Haiku while leafing through the relevant section of my dictionary and my choice was made. This haiku is one of the most well-known in Japan. It was written in 1686 by Matsuo Basho, a famous haiku poet. I decided to keep to an oriental theme and used some of my beautiful washi paper to make a tiny origami frog and to frame the computer generated texts. The BG is made with a dragonfly stencil, sequin waste and various sprays. I used teardrop shaped gems to give the illusion of a splash in the pond (salty ocean DI). As well as the Japanese script I have given a translation and in the bottom right corner I have written roughly how the poem sounds.
Now that I've finished my entry I can come over and see all the beautiful interpretations of your chosen words.
