P - PAWNFor their 2013 challenge The Craft Barn have again produced an excellent challenge - The Alpha/Dictionary Challenge more details available at The Craft Barn. They provide a letter of the alphabet for a fortnight challenge, but to stop we crafters from getting ahead of ourselves they are cleverly and crafter-ly providing us with a letter from a mixed up alphabet, so no guessing what lies ahead each fortnight. I am late in joining in the fun, for several reasons, but I have completed letter P for the sixth week and intend to do a catch up with the previously provided letters, V, C, E, H, Ma - Me.
For my letter P I have chosen the word PAWN, as in a Chess Pawn - dictionary definition - chess man of smallest size and value, unimportant person, subservient to others' plans. Any chess players will probably spot, I am a line short on the chessboard, instead of it being 8 x 8 squares it is actually only 7 x 8 squares, sorry I didn't spot my error until the lines were drawn around the board, too late to alter it. I have used a Crative Expressions Vintage Games set of stamps, The Queen's crown is from Kanban Jasper set of Steampunk stamps. I used some very old rub ons for lettering and a stencil for other lettering. This is my very first time in approaching a book in this way. I greatly enjoyed creating the page and may now understand the enjoyment in journalling, time will tell. Must dash to get this onto the The Craft Barn before the challenge is closed.
