Another Word Up Wednesday!

I think one of my favorite junking scores was a 
falling apart dictionary.
That thing has provided for so many crafts.

As I was blog hopping one day I came across this creative gal
and fell in love with her book page leaves.
So I decided to have the girls try it.

And here's the latest dictionary page craft.

I gave each girl a leaf to trace on to a dictionary page.
(a little bit of advice- when working with dictionary pages, scan the page to see what words are being defined- 
just sayin . . .)
 Then they painted fallish colors with watercolor paints.

 After the paint dried, they went over their traced lines with colored pencil.

The girls were pleased with their art work and 

I can't wait to mat these with brown paper and 
add them to my fall decor.

Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends!
