Watch


The next letter in the Alpha/Dictionary challenge over  at the  Craft Barn is  'W' with the added twist to add circles to the page.
This is one of the rare times I had to start from scratch, so after sticking down my dictionary pages, giving everywhere a coat of gesso, I was ready to go.
I chose the word 'Watch' which does have a few meanings depending how you add and use  it when you are speaking or writing a sentence. .
Nothing like complicating  things, so my interpretations for the word are are -


watch---to look at
watch---a small clock for the wrist or pocket.

I used a dotty mask for the background circles using Pans pastels to shade,  next stamping on  some watches.


The watching eyes and  image are  Dylusions stamps , these were water coloured.
I used a homemade stencil for the larger circles  to put in the die cut letters.
To highlight the dictionary definition I used the eraser end of a pencil  dipped on to an old ink pad.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
