Altered Dictionary - U

This time around for the Alpha Challenge the letter assigned to us for word illustration is U
 
I've selected the word Ulster. 
A great benefit of this project is learning words I've not ever known before.
 
 
 

 Never before have I ever read practically every word in any dictionary...who does that?!  But when this project reaches it's end, that's exactly what I will have done!  Who woulda guessed.

And we are learning right along with you. Did you hand draw the Ulster pattern - great job! I see this challenge is also to find a word that you can depict with a picture! Double challenge!

Cindy Sharp said...

Awesome.

Cindy Sharp said...

Ullage would be another good U word.

Grammasheri said...

Don't know where you come up with the images to embellish your words, but you do a bang-up job! Love the ones you choose!

Laura said...

Lovely page
I hadn't realised by the end of the year I will have 'read' an entire dictionary!

Doris said...

How much have you retained? Is your vocabulary considerable more impressive now?

Maisie Moonshine said...

Hi Annie, it's always good to learn something new isn't it? Great pages - love those pattern pieces, and your gentleman looks very dapper. MMx

Nice one, Annie, I don't think anyone else will have chosen "Ulster". I like the pattern too. What a lovely vintage dictionary this is turning out to be.

West Michigan Quilter said...

Even with the picture I had to go look the word up. Great job with the picture and the pattern. Love it!

Renee said...

Now that is a new word! I'm glad that went out of style.......love your dictionary pages!

Julie Ann Lee said...

What a fascinating project you've given yourself! You're going to be one learned gal when this is finished! I love this man's ulster, brilliant vintage image. Julie Ann xx

Not many people can claim that! But then, you and your art are quite wonderfully unique.

Valerie said...

What an unusual word Annie and beautifully depicted! I am also envious of your dictionary with the finger indents:)

I love this project and how it stretches us to read the actual dictionary. Wouldn't this be a fun school project for a teacher. If they didn't want to use an actual book they could merely photocopy pages. I have to tell you I actually used your last word selection. I told my neighbor he was very fop. Hahaha...not so funny to him. I had to explain to everyone around. At least I had a good laugh. Happy Creative Hearts Dear...

Apart from being artistically pleasing your entry is also educational!!! :) Have a great day!

Frea Konings said...

Hi Annie, a new word for me too! Love that character, reminds me of Shirlock Holmes. Hugs Frea

Karen said...

Do you use these new words every so often too? I think reading the whole dictionary is quite an accomplishment.

Scrapmate said...

I only manage to read the letters with fewer words the others I just skip through. U is definitely filled with negatives but your word is great.

ellen gets crafty said...

We are all learning new words from your dictionary - the gentleman looks very regal!

Jacque said...

Love seeing your pages, Annie! This has been a great project so far. Your gentleman looks handsome, not like a fop. LOL

Sandy said...

Hey Annie - how very clever!! I did not know this word. My fathers, an ulster. All gentlemen should have an ulster. You even supplied us with a pattern. How kind of you!

And I thought it was a town in Northern Ireland! Well done you for finding such a great new word and illustrations it just right. BJ

Lesley said...

I've learned a lot of new words too, thanks to your creative genius. Thanks for another! I'm a little worried that the end of the alphabet is fast approaching...then what? Are you going to start over just for us?

Rachel said...

LOL, new words to me too!! Love what you did! Thanks for some education with this fabulous project!!

Chris R said...

It's not very surprising but it's also a new word to me :)
Wonderful work and very inspiring! I love visiting your pages!

lena-dailyscrap said...

Didn't know I have an ulster but thanks to you I realize that I do! Great take!

JansArtyJunk said...

Great word choice.Every time I opened my dictionary after seeing your page the word jumped out at me but prior to that I never 'saw' it. Love how you have done your page - simple but apt.
