This weeks Alpha challenge over at The Craft Barn is to use the letter Y but with an added twist. You must use the colour yellow somewhere on your page. Well there are not many pages in the dictionary for the letter Y but one word caught my eye in particular, Year.
A lot of the other entrants have chosen to decorate their dictionary pages in situ but I decided to take my pages out and make a small separate booklet. At the end of the year (we are doing a letter a fortnight) I will have 13 pages (double sided) plus a front and back cover. We are just over the half way mark now and my booklet is really beginning to take shape.
Anyway I digress as to why I chose the word year. Well as this will have been a year long project when completed I thought a page which depicted the actual year created would be quite appropriate .
Page has been coloured using watered down poster paint. Months are from current and old calendar pages. Ribbon from stash and letter created using Sizzix alphabet strip 656133
