gosh these fortnights go quickly. Craft Barn Challenge time again, this time the letter U. Well what a negative letter it is, all those "uns". I the dictionary I am using these were only 4 pages of words starting with U that didn't start with UN and 16 pages that did. Didn't know where to start and then I say "Ustulation"...never heard of it, never seen it. It means, according to my old dictionary, "the act of burning or searing; ....the roasting or drying of moist substances so as to prepare them for pulverising" Sounds a bit like my cooking.
I was sorting some photo files and came across a picture I took in Autumn 2008 and it occurred that Autumn is a bit like Mother Nature doing a bit of Ustulation. So here it is.
I played with the phot in Paint Shop Pro adding some flames and then I burned the edges with a candle and a lot of blowing out. The background is collaged book pages because I also thought how many times, down through the ages, books have been burned. Here it is with the dictionary definition tag.
