Altered Dictionary - B

Greetings!!!!  (can you tell I have been watching Star Trek????? :D )

Its Alpha Challenge time again and this week its the letter 'B'.  For my fruit dictionary its B for Blackberry.  I could have gone for Boysenberry or Blackcurrant (amongst others) but I wanted to use a Blackberry Fairy and her song for my page.  I have an old Flower Fairies book by Cicely Mary Barker and the images are beautifully painted.  I scanned the picture and wrote out the song.

The background has been roughly brayered with Fresco Paint in Stone.   Apart from some stamping around the edge the rest is doodled & hand written.

Do pop over to The Craft Barn Challenge Blog to see what its all about.  Never too late to join in!  Thank you for popping by :D  HUGS xxx

It's really pretty, love the brayering of the paint to knock back the detail of the print.
