Alpha/Dictionary Letter R

This is the seventh week for THE CRAFT BARN Alpha/Dictionary challenge and they have asked for the letter R. I have chosen REINDEER. I used Chipped Sapphire as a watercolour for the sky, Pine needles for the ground, white emulsion paint for the hills and lower ground. I stamped the Santa's sleigh and reindeer in the sky directly to the page, then added lots of (peel off)  shh! stars. The trees down the hillside are from Sheena Douglass Pinescape set. The reindeer is from Sheena Douglass again - Christmas set (Creative Expressions). I added Hi-Tack glitter glue along the bottom edge for the glistening snow which I am hoping will show when the pic is enlarged. I have greatly enjoyed making this page, journalling is fun. This is only my second entry, for I was a late starter, however I did say I would catch up so below is my non-entry  attempt at the letter V - which was the first week of the challenge. 

I know there were several entries for VAMPIRE but as I am too late and just doing a catch up, I have gone with the one which appealed to me. I have a combination of Tandastamps,  Bats, cobwebs and skull. (So sorry to hear they are no longer trading). Inidgo Blu - Owl,  spider in web and church cloisters. Kanban - the Vampire from Jasper set of stamps. (Also very sorry that Kanban have ceased to trade too.) I loved making this page and I can keep it. I'll continue to play catch up, so for a few weeks I'll be adding two. I again used Distress Inks on top of white emulsion paint. I have a lot to learn with this journalling art.

  10. Reindeer is my next one, I don't think it will be as good as yours though!
    Love the vampires, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting despite the problem which has been going on for months now, they don't seem to fix it or take any notice on the forums.
