The Craft Barn - Alpha Challenge H

Hi all, over at The Craft Barn the alpha challenge this week is the Letter H.  I did this page the other day while feeling low and I really wanted to do the old type of house that I used to draw as a kid, I know it looks pretty awful but I enjoyed doing it.  I put question marks next to the homeless on the dictionary page as we won't know until December 2014 if a new train line will take our home away :-(

I really love this English/French dictionary, the pages are so tough
so don't need gesso or pages sticking together and the dylusion
sprays look awesome on them.  Guess it was a bargain for £2.50
from the charity shop, it's also so thick that I should get a few
years out of my first journal :-)

Close up showing dictionary page, this time you can see it lol,
I didn't over load it this time :-)

Right I shall be off, if you pop back tomorrow I shall be posting another DT project :-)
Happy Crafting, Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

I love your "childish" house in that row of others, and the colours are delicious! How horrible to be living with the possibility of losing your house...

It 's not awful at all. The main thing is that you enjoyed the process.
I do hope the train line does not happen,
Thanks for playing with us at the Craft Barn

A lovely depiction of a childhood home. Hope everything works out for you.
