P is for Patchwork.

The current letter over at the The Craft Barn is P. I was originally going to go with Poppies but at the eleventh hour changed my mind to Patchwork!

I have used a wash of pale  pink and green water colour paints on the dictionary page leaving the definition of the word clear. The patchwork is made up from NitWit papers which  were a freebie in a magazine. The lace, trimming, buttons, ribbon  and flower backings are all from my stash to pick up the colours in the papers. The letter P is a free download and can be found here.
