Hello and welcome fellow WOYWWers!

A very quick one today...

I'm working on my altered dictionary again - this time it's W and as I only had 33 french words to choose from I plumped for wisteria - now you can see how very NOT artistic I really am!!!

I have "painted" my wisteria with DI inks and a water or paint brush on tissue paper which I will Matte Medium on to my dictionary page. I'm hoping that the circle flourishes on the background (a deviation from my normal style but a requirement of this week's challenge) will show through the tissue.

On the far right - in front of the kitchen towel is my stamp catalogue (the big pink book) which I really need to update - and looking at the photo reminds me that I really must take that sellotape back downstairs.

That's all from me for now, catch up with you later...

Thanks for visiting, please leave a comment so that I know you've been.

  12. We had even less W words in our dictionary as we set ourselves the extra challenge of only using words that translated to the same in both languages.

    Thanks for your earlier visit to the bears.

  18. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Peanut (who resembes your Harriet) is the least mischievious of the whole crew. Molly is the one who likes to 'experiment'. April #119

  19. Oh Maisie can't wait to see the Wisteria page, in face popped over to the challenge site to see if you'd added it yet, but sadly no. We have a Wisteria in the garden and I painted it in my Altered Book last year along with the Camelia to its left Here is the post
    We chopped it back severely last year so I doubt we'll see as many flowers this year. Thanks for visiting me yesterday, I'm a bit behind answering BJ#31

  20. Your wisteria looks lovely on the tissue paper I am sure it will be fab on the page

  22. Oh, wisteria is one of my favorite plants! Nice and delicate. Yours looks great!!

    Love the background of your blog - oh and that tablecloth, love it! After all, what's not to love.....

    Happy WOYWW

  23. Your wisteria looks great, it will look even better on the dictionary page. I still use my daggy old dictionary, don't trust the internet with all the new lazy spelling they have.
    Have a great week.

  24. I think your wistertia looks awesome! Way better than what I ever could.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  25. Good idea to do dictionary pages - but being a writer, I love words too much to choose just one! Hope your page came out as you wanted. Time constraints mean I’m Weekend-WOYWW-ing, but hope you’ve had a good one! Deb # 125


Thanks for sharing your happy thoughts. Maisie Moonshine x
