Alpha Challenge - P for Peacock

Here is my P page for the Craft Barns Alpha Challenge.  Maybe unsurprisingly I chose Peacock...

And this is how it turned out...

I learnt some stuff too :)

I used pastels for the feather.  I don't often use pastels and was surprised by how far the 'dust' travelled!

After clearing up all the residue I used watercolour pencils and drawing pens for the picture of the bird.

I feel the blurred out edges is slightly cheating as I didn't draw the whole animal... but I like the effect it gives.  I'm happy with how he turned out in the end.

I didn't get to visit many other entries last time so hopefully I can have a peek at both P and Ma-Me pages this time around.  I do love seeing what words you guys have picked!

Thanks for stopping by

  3. Beautiful project! Thanks for visiting me for WOYWW..I had the faithbook. This link shows one theme and title for an 8x8 album, it was on my post but wanted to share it with you. I personally needed the theme done for me so I could concentrate on putting the right pictures with each page verse. Have fun!!
