SOMETHING A LITTE DIFFERENT FOR A CHALLENGE..


Hello Everyone..

I found a new [to me] challenge site called THE LIBRARY  and all challenges are based on books and you can interpret how ever you want to...

This is my interpretation of the the theme this week called " The Hobbit"...



I found these images and checked out a site with sayings from movies and this saying was by Gandalf..


I used distress inks and pencils and typed and printed the quote onto kraft then inked around the edges...then added a leaf branch.




The ink from the Dragons mouth was an accident but a happy one as it turned out to look like a muted flame....and you can see the quote a bit clearer here..


A close up of the dwarf..creepy little blighter..

Entering into The Library  challenge [ The Hobbit]

Thanks for stopping by..

Luv CHRISSYxx

You did some serious research for this card to fit the theme. And it paid off. It’s original and a true JRR Tolkien fan would be over the moon for getting it. I’d say you nailed it!

All I can say is WOW!!!! I'm pretty well speechless! This is awesome. I love the way it really does look like flame coming out of that dragon's mouth. That had to have been a very happy mistake! I just LOVE this Chrissy!!!
