B is for Butterfly......

Hi my lovely crafty friends, hope you're all well.
These late night posts seem to be getting a bit of a habit for me recently so I'll try to keep it short & sweet. This year I found the Alpha Dictionary Challenge over at The Craft Barn. It works like this: every 2 weeks we're given a letter of the alphabet, we than have to create a tag, atc, journal page etc  of something beginning with that letter. It has to include the letter/word AND the definition. The 1st letter we were given was B, I chose to make a journal page, think it'll be kinda cool to have an alphabet journal....and I chose the word BUTTERFLY. My background is acrylic paint, I added some light inky stenciling in a couple of colours & whilst still damp a sprinkle of frantage. The next layer is soft, dreamy cheesecloth then the top is the corrugated die cut butterfly which I rubbed with some more acrylic paint. Lastly, I added the glittered chipboard letter B & the dictionary definition.
Can't wait to see what the next letter is! Rightio, better get myself off to bed. Thanks for calling......see you tomorrow.....and don't forget I have a little giveaway HERE....would love you to enter.
