Week 9 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and left comments: they are very much appreciated. Time is at a premium at the moment dealing with my late mother's estate and travelling down to south west London to clear her house. Hopefully I will be back very soon firing on all cylinders and able to visit your blogs.

At least I did manage to find a few minutes to relax body and brain and make my week 9 atc for the Craft Barn Alpha challenge. For the second week running I didn't use any new stamps that have been languishing in my craft room for far too long but I'm sure I will be able to rectify that shortly! I used the highlighter pen background technique shown in Paula Whittaker's article in August 2012 Craft Stamper magazine and the dress on the petulant looking little girl has been paper pieced.

Love it Maggie. That highlighter pen technique is a brilliant way to create backgrounds isn't it?

Cute page - the little girl looks like what I imagine my mother looked like as a little girl and not being allowed to do the things her brother was allowed to job.
