It's a new fortnight and the
Alpha Challenge has assigned us the letter B
I wasn't much inspired by any odd words this time. I've chosen Bucksaw as my entry for the challenge.
My intention for this book is to alter at least one word on every page. So I challenged myself to choose a word to alter on the first B page. I chose Babel. And I proceeded to learn about The Tower of Babel, which I had not known about before.
I found quite a variety of images of this tower, but this one seemed the most common. The variety of images was fascinating to look through.
Back in the letter F when I illustrated the word Flourish...
my attempt to only lightly ink my stamp was a flop. I was so disappointed that the ink bled through the page SO badly. Once I calmed down over it a few weeks later, I began to read the words on the next page to see what possibly I could do with this mess to use it as part of this altering process.
WHAT LUCK!part of the definition for the word Fluke is "a failure". And it couldn't have landed in a better spot.
And that's how my dictionary alters to date.
