A....

Now you see it....
Now you don't......
My letter A for the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge.  My first thought was, of course, Alphabet but I am hoping to make a book of this challenge, if I get to the end, and I have an idea for the cover firmly fixed in mind. So I had to find something different, I toyed with Astrology and Astronomy but then this lept out of the old dictionary.
I had never heard of this charm before.  My triangle isn't exactly equilateral but geometry was never a strong suit.
I cut the letters from gold paper with my die cutter. I remembered, from childhood, those sliding panels that used to change the picture but couldn't find or figure out how to make one (if anyone knows please tell me)
so I made a rabbit which disappears (wrong way round I know but it had to be where it is).

Great fun! I'm glad you chose 'abracadabra' instead of something far more pedestrian. Love that 'wascally wabbit'!

Fabuloso! Hey presto! And fun!

How clever to choose Abracadabra .. have heard it used as a spell in pantomimes etc but never seen it written down in the form of a triangle like that before. Amazing what you learn by joining this challenge xxx Annie

I loved this page and thought it was very clever.I think if you google slider cards you may find the technique you were after.

That is so clever and it's fun to read of the charm aspect of the word.

Hi Annie, love your Alphabet page, I actually debated picking this word myself and then decided on 'atom'. Just love the way you depicted the word. I would love it if you would pop on over to my blog and visit! I just started my blog to I am a bit of a newby. http://messymixedmediabyfrea.blogspot.nl/

Ah, another learning page! I too did not know this about this magic word. I think it's great that your magic works backwards!
