Alpha Dictionary Challenge Q

My favorite Challenge is back!
The Alpha Altered Dictionary Challenge

My most favorite ever challenge and I almost missed it.  I did miss getting the first challenge letter into the list of players, but that's no-never-mind for me.  I shall play from here and I'm already caught up.  This is the only year-long Challenge that I ever finished.

The letter this fortnight is Q
My chosen word is questionnaire.


Last time I chose queen and now this page spread is done.  Only like 500 more to go.  LoL


To start the challenge off last fortnight was the letter B.
I chose the word bookish.


I'm up-to-date and current now and so excited to be playing this fun altered dictionary challenge again.

My pages aren't much for artsy, but I am getting the look I want for this altered dictionary.  I think it's a form of art, just not the way others think of this challenge.

Annie I am so happy to see your altered art challenge dictionary once again. I love what you create on the pages. I love dictionaries ever since I got my very first Webster's for my 12th birthday. I used to read it at night studying words for Scrabble so I could compete with my mother who always had amazing words. Of course she was 24 years older than I but I tried. Creative Bliss Dear...

OMGosh. YOU might not think these pages are arty, but I think they are fantastic. I was really impressed with both images, since I missed the first time Craft Barn did this. In fact, I didn't even know Craft Barn existed back then. I am very, very impressed with your art, because I like the clean and simple look you are creating in this dictionary. So glad you joined in because I LOVE your art!

I love both pages you've done and enjoy seeing your CAS style. That image for bookish is wonderful.

Fabulous pages, and it is great to see your previous entries too!

Elaine said...

Excellent work. Your pages are great and I love the fact you are using the same dictionary - it'll look fabulous by the end of the year!!

What a great way to use your imagination and end up with a wonderful "dictionary of possibilities!"

Oh, the Dictionary will be pleased it has got out again and is getting attention.
What an interesting set of questions, I wonder if they mean something to you. I had to laugh when I came to number 28, it was a bit unexpected.
Your method of stamping and subtly colouring is perfect for this book and it especially likes your interpretation of "Bookish".

What a wonderful idea Annie, somehow I missed your previous altered dictionary pages but I love them all! How fun to just choose a word from the page and embellish as the spirit moves you, love it! Deb xo

Annie said...

I am blown away by your pages - they are just fabulous. I don't like things too arty as sometimes they are OTT but yours are perfect. I love your ideas. I missed the challenge the first time round but am really excited to join in this time. I only hope I can do as good a job as you. Annie xxx

I love your pages. The image on the B page is great and I like that questionnaire. I have read it twice already. Great work and looking forward to seeing what you do next.

What a great idea. I love the head stamp :)

Sandy said...

Glorious!! Wonderful pages -- I started a dictionary with them a good year ago. I went to find something for the Q pages and found I had glued all mine together - oh well. So I will do a B page tomorrow and look forward to the next challenge. Thanks Annie, I never would have known about this had it not been for you!!

Your Q page looks great! There's another blogger I follow who was doing this challenge. I wonder if she still is? (I'm behind on my blog reading.) It's such a great idea but I'd have to find a smaller dictionary than the ones I have. They're both vintage and the one is so huge I use itto press items. lol

Maggie said...

Hi Annie good to see you back, I love the style you have chosen for your dictionary very arty, enjoyed looking at your pages back in 2013 as I'm sure I will during this challenge. Great idea for Question.

Two fabulous pages and I like the clean and simple look which allows all the other words to be read as well.
