'A' is for Adolescent

The ninth letter in the The Craft Barn alpha challenge is 'A' and I have chosen the word Adolescent.

I started with the usual piece of 6x7 inch white card stock and punched the 2 holes on the correct side of the page so that I can eventually add it my book.  I glued the dictionary page to the card stock and then covered the whole page (excluding the word and definition) with water and Dylusions ink sprays in varying purples, pinks and white.  I added Tim Holtz black soot distress ink around the edge of the page and then added black and white lines and added the same around my word and definition before covering it with rock candy distress crackle paint.  I added some picket fence to tone down the colour and stamped the Stampotique prom queen and hanging hearts and coloured using Letraset promarkers.  Next I added the appropriate Tim Holtz alphabet letter and stamped my chosen word onto black card stock.  Finally I covered areas of the page with a Dylusions stencil and removed some of the colour using a baby wipe.
Thanks for looking!
