Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - F
The twist in the 11th Alpha Challenge on the Craft Barn blog is the letter F but only words between Fe and Fr. That ruled out several good words such as family and face. I've been away for a few days and have been trying to catch up with various things so I've only just managed to complete this.
I decided to go with Free/Freedom. Apparently in the language of colours, blue is the colour of freedom (who knew?) so there is quite a bit of blue. I drew hand sketched frames (you could call them freeform?) and used tumbled glass, salty ocean and stormy sky DIs on the BG over some cloud-shaped masks. The flying birds (they have feathers, right?) are Tim Holtz and Crafty Individuals stamps and the bird die is by Sizzix (I could say it was a finch but I think it's a swallow). The foliage and flowers are by Paula Pascual from the punchable tags set. The text is cut from an Xcut set and Tim Holtz's alphabetical die.
I'm sorry I have not been able to visit anyone this week - I have an awful lot on at the moment but I will try and have a look at your no doubt wonderful entries.
