Craft Barn "Alpha/Dictionary" Challenge

The new letter for the Craft Barn challenge is "J" with the twist to include a dragonfly.

I went for the word Journey. For the background I made a colour wash of Distress Inks and crumbled the paper to get a bit of a vintage look. I then used a stamp all over the background. I printed out an old map and made it look a bit used and glued it to the background. Then I added tamps from the corresponding continents. Since I didn't find a stamp for Africa i used a stamp with a dragonfly :)

Some added extras and the definition added as well. 
Happy weekend and thanks for looking :)


  1. Lucky you had that stamp with a Dragonfly! Lovely illustration of the word Journey.

  2. OMGosh, how amazingly clever! What an incredibly beautiful way to get around that pesky dragonfly twist. I have lots of stamps, but never thought of a dragonfly, or even ones from countries other than my own. Way to handle this challenge straight on!!

  3. Clever idea to use the stamps and what luck to have one with a dragonfly on it. A great page.
