Alphabet Swap Letter "V" (1 of 29 pages I will be doing)
Hosted by Beth A
Due Date September 15, 2006

After creating the backgrounds some of the back colors seeped through to my masked off square, so I decided to do my square on a seperate piece of text wove and glue it to the main page. I used Tombow watercolor markers to edge the new square and used water to move the color around a bit.. I thermal embossed the Kersal letter "V" and used Twinkles H2o's. Wrote the words Kersals & (V)ersals with Zig markers. Added a definition of a V word "Volute and wrote a border of V words both with a black Zig marker.  When the square was glued down I edged it with a Krylon gold pen. Added some gold diamonds in between the border words

Note: I will be doing different definition words and border words for each page and also a variation of the Kersal letter.
