L...

The letter L this time on the Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge but with a twist.  A window had to be included.  I had a look at Lattice but kept coming back to Landscape.  The landscape I wanted to use was a photograph of Wastwater in the Lake District which I took in May.. I also wanted to suggest the whitewashed  houses you see in the Lakeland, so this is a sort of inside out view of the Lake.
the windows were packing inside a child's game. I did think of putting lattice in them but it obscured the photograph.  The wall is painted with PaperArtsy Grunge paste and Fresco Nougat and here it is with tag.

Great fun! And though it's not actually a lattice, the window frame does suggest one, I think. :-)

A nice way to incorporate the pic you took.

It's a great way to incorporate a window and landscape and the white walls of your cottage really show off the photo!

Super page looking OUT through your window. Great photo too. BJ

Fabulous idea to use a personal photo as the view behind your window...very clever x

What a beautiful photo, Pat, no wonder you wanted to incorporate it into the landscape theme. I love the treatment and the luggage tag is an inspired addition.

A very personal approach to your letter this week. I love your photo and how you have incorporated the whitewashed houses of the area. Very cool.
