Inspired by Four Letter Words Fourth Friday


made with four   

Did April go by in a blink of an eye or what?  Here we are at the fourth Friday and it's the first link and show your Inspired by Four Letter Words work.  The only four letter words we are using are ones that you can say on tv and not get bleeped.  Cool, calm, done, many, moon, able, book, vase, and so on...  There is more info in this post.

Link your blog post to the list below.  Pin your work to the Group Board on Pinterest, please leave a comment on the Group Board HERE  for an invitation to the Board.  Pinterest will send you the email/invite, accept it and you are added to the board.

My work was inspired by decluttering and coming across an old "Clue" game. That was the start of an idea for a collage using items from the Clue game. The word that inspired me, was "mask."  I had a 100 plus years old book that is too fragile to use in most ways, and one of the stories in the book is called, "The Mask."  From there, I incorporated a made up fairy tale, wing(s), tree, lady, road (map), moon, flag, and you get the idea.  I used several four letter words.

The photos are a little blurry and the scanner was not cooperating either.  In a week or so I should have a new camera and hopefully the photos will be improving. You can click on the images to enlarge them.

Magazine clippings, acrylic paint, watercolors, pens, wrapping paper, transfers, book pages, maps, cardstock, game pages, and acetate were mounted on cardboard.   Size is 8 x 11 inches.

Mark your calendars for next month's link, May 24, the fourth Friday.  Choose your own Four Letter Word and start making, writing, sewing, photographing, beading, etc.  Any way you choose to express the inspiration...  Hope to see you then.

Now let's see what you made and Thank You for joining this slightly different challenge.

I promise to be "on time" next month! Thanks for letting me post my earlier post.

As an aside...I could not see any of your text on Firefox browser-had to go to IE. Weird!

Hi Gloria! I found you through Magic Love Crow's blog! I like the idea of creating something around a "clean" four letter word. Can I join in for the May 24th event? Sounds like so much fun! Have a great weekend and I enjoyed looking through your blog and look forward to coming back.

I'm back but wasn't able to email you my contribution to the four letter word for April. Hope to be able to participate on May 24th. Your collage is most inspiring and now that I'm home you've got me motivated. I will visit all your links so I can get my creative juices flowing. It's been a hectic month. Cheers
