Craft Barn Alpha Challenge, Letter T. for TEATIME!!!


Happy Tuesday,
Well, I was absent for a while from this Challenge, not because I do not like it, but on account of my other life getting in the way of my crafting. Doesn't it happen to all of us at one point?  My last page featuring the word Yesterday, was selected for the wall of fame! thank you Ladies for this honor much appreciated!

Bon mardi,
J'ai été absente de ce défi pendant plusieurs semaines, non pas que je n'aime pas ce qu,il propose, bien au contraire, mais parce qu'il y avait conflit entre ma vie et mon temps dans mon atelier! Ca arrive à tout le monde, n'est-ce pas? Ma dernière page sur la lettre Y, mettant en vedette la chanson Yesterday des Beatles m'a valu une sélection sur le Wall of  Fame. Merci à toutes pour cet honneur très apprécié.


For those who know me, it is not a surprise that the letter "T" symbolizes Tea. I love tea, I have a passion for tea, and I will share with you that my coup de coeur of this summer is wulong, oh! a special blend from la maison Camellia Sinensis, called Dong Ding Mr. Chan, from Taiwan. Tasty, sweet and oh! so good! Enough bla bla.. on to my page. I had a dilemma, cause I also have this thing about the word TIME. Can't stop signing Time... is on my side! I was very happy to find my two favorite words reunited and this is what it inspired me! Four o'clock tea.

Vous qui me connaissez bien, savez mon amour et ma passion pour le thé, alors pas de surprise que la lettre T, m'inspire le mot Thé. J'adore le thé, je suis une passionnée de thé; mon coup de coeur de l'été, c'est un wulong de la Taiwan de la maison Camellia Sinensis, appellé Dong Ding Mr. Chan. J'ai aussi un amour inconditionnel pour le mot TEMPS.  Je chante toujours la chanson Time is on my side... J,étais ravie de voir dans mon dictionnaire le mot TEATIME ! Ah! cette fois le choix n'a pas été difficile!  Voici ma page sur L'heure du thé...



I experienced a wonderful texture technique done by CeeCee, played with paint, ink  and Inkagold; wanted to give my tea pot and tea cup a porcelain look, that was not so successful, my test came out pretty nice, but on account of the poor quality of the dictionary page, and the larger surface to cover vs the test,it did not work out as expected. but I still like it! next time I will try something else!

Je me suis beaucoup amusée avec une belle technique enseignée par CeeCee, qui m'inspire à tout coup, et me fait rire, surtout la journée de sa tasse Mickey! J'ai joué avec de la peinture, de l'encre, du Inkagold; j'ai voulu donner à ma tasse et théière un aspect porcelaine, mais j'ai raté mon coup... J,avais fait un test, et ca sortait très bien; sauf que la surface à couvrir étant plus grande, le papier de dictionnaire de mauvaise qualité, le résultat n'est pas aussi joli que je le prévoyais, mais j'aime bien. La prochaine fois, je vais essayer autre chose.

Well, this is it for me today, I am working on a Birthday card featuring Tilda, and I am looking forward to share it with you. have a lovely week!
C'est tout pour aujourd'hui... je travaille sur une carte de fête avec Tilda. J'ai hâte de vous la montrer. Bonne semaine!

Cool pages and a lovely way to share your story. Love all the textures you used and I think part of this challenge is to experiment and see the amazing results we all come up with. I'll be round to yours at 4pm for some of that delicious tea you mentioned.Lol.

Hey Sugar. If I were able to participate right now I would do something with tea too. I love hot tea and pretty tea cups and tea pots. This is really well done but you know Danielle - everything you do is wonderful. I really love your pages.

I love your teatime pages and enjoyed reading your post. I think we've all had problems with the quality of the dictionary paper using one technique or another, your page still looks beautiful. MMx

It doesn't matter if it's not the way you expected. It turned out beautiful nonetheless!
It's so much fun to try out new techniques!
