Altered Dictionary - R

This fortnight's letter for the Alpha Challenge is R
and my word to illustrate in my altered dictionary is
 
Rouge
 
 
I stamped the face stamp and added rouge to her cheeks and all was good.  Then I tried to do something with the word and definition and turned the whole thing into a disappointing mess.  I really wanted to rip the page out and make it disappear.  But, I wasn't going to do that, so I set out to fix it.  It's better.  That's the best I can say about it.

I think she's perfect. What else could you do to depict that word? A little rogue on her cheeks is good!

Carol said...

Rouge is a good "R" word and your creation is very cool!

This is fabulous Annie! Wish my mistakes looked as good as your creations...LOL...you are way too hard on yourself!

Karen said...

Oh Annie, I wish I had started out doing the type of pages that you do instead of my inky, messy ones! Your pages always look so neat and classical! Fabulous work my lovely!

And I thought I was a perfectionist! Whatever was wrong before, it looks perfect now and I can see that the dictionary likes it. Attractive artwork as always, Annie.

A great word and I love your CAS pages.

BJ said...

oh that reminds me of my Ballet/Stage days as my mother always put rouge on my cheeks. Usually known as blusher now. I don't think your page is a mess at all, in fact quite striking and the face is framed really well. BJ

Rachel said...
