Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Y
A CAS entry from me for this fortnight's Craft Barn Alpha Challenge. There were very few Y words in my dictionary and I had already done several potential words like yashmak, yule and youth in other forms. I narrowed it down to Yin and Yang or Year. The position of the Yin & Yang definitions on the page was very awkward so by a process of elimination Year it was.
I covered both pages with white acrylic (masking the definition) and then stuck some peel-offs all over. Yes I know horror of horrors PEEL-OFFS!!!!! I have a ring binder full of peel-offs that I used to use a lot when I first started cardmaking. Most of you probably have the same. But then we all became too sophisticated to use peel-offs and abandoned them. This idea of using them as masks was one I saw on the Katzelkraft forum some time ago. Anyway back to the project - I applied Impress lemon yellow with a foam pad and then removed the peel-offs. Then Hampton Arts crackle stamp was used all over with Stazon mustard. The months around both pages are by Studio G (it's getting harder and harder to stamp directly onto the pages because they are so lumpy now) and the months and dates stamp is by Hero Arts.
