Still Playing Catch Up over at The Craft Barn

J is for Joker


Getting there slowly, just a few more to catch up on.  My choice of word for the letter J is Joker.  I covered the pages with harlequin and gold tissue papers then made three tiny ATC sized envelopes, embossed at the top and lined with gold tissue paper for the tiny Joker cards.  the image on the right I layered on the contrasting paper to match after embossing the edges with gold.  Sticker letters and the dictionary entry finish the card.  Please take a few moments to check out my other catch up letters below.  Link to the challenge can be found HERE

Off to enjoy the other posts, thanks for looking and comments and suggestions are always welcome.


T is for Tulip


The tulip is one of my favourite flowers, it heralds Spring with such vibrant colour.  To echo this I used Gelatos for a dripped background on gesso.  Stamps and stencils remove and add colour to the pages.


Y is for Yurt


The letter over at the Craft Barn is Y with some yellow on your page.  I chose the word Yurt.  Sprayed glimmer mist through stencils background.  Texture paste spread through leaf stencil and painted black then highlighted with Viva paste.  Window cut through several layers to reveal the inside of a yurt.  On the outside of the window is another photo of a yurt.


B is for Bathing Beauties, Beige, Black, Border, Brown, Brownie

Beige brown striped paper background, harlequin stamp, Edwardian girls at the seaside photo with black die cut border.  A cardstock sticker of a Brownie box camera and a rub on word.  All with a lace border.

You're doing well with the catch-up. I can't decide which page I like best - the tulips with gelatos(I'm itching to try these out), the fabulous yurt or this week's joker.

Thanks for your comment. I tried to leave one on yours but it chewed up my words when I hit publish. Re the gellatos I bought them at michaels using a 40% discount coupon socost a lot less. Even managed to get out of the store with just them. A first for me lol.

WOW catch-up and a half there I'd say. Love the pockets on the Joker, the colours on the Tulip, the shiny on the Yurt and the border on the B page. All super. BJ

I love your joker page it just sings to me and all your catch up pages are fabulous. You put me to shame I only have one catch up page and I still haven't started - bad girl.
