#86 inspired by foreign words

Ha ha! Stumped by my own prompt. Funny how that happens to both of us!

I put it down to being a little out of mojo right now but I did have a go and flipped through my photos until one caught my eye. One I've been wanting to scrap for a while and the look on the sheep's face just kind of said to me, "Yes, what do you want?!" Two words in German just summed that up and there, I had my base.

Turning to my Counterfeit April kit, Opposite, I picked out some natural colours as well as a hint of pink to pick up the fact that she had such a pretty face.

I managed to keep to my kit exclusively with just three tiny strips of washi being added in along with a few mists. Not bad for this mismatched kit so far.

I truly wanted to come up with something more creative - bringing in something in French maybe (yes, I USED to be able to speak that. It feels like an awful long time ago but I know it must be lurking in my brain somewhere), or bringing in some of those words from German that I find perfect for the job - better than English, or the fact that I'm losing my English a little.

But this will have to do for now. After all, this sheep wouldn't have spoken to me in anything than German would she?!?

Apologies for the late-at-night, slightly-shiny-glare-from-electric-light, colours-a-bit-off photo.

Loving trying to make these old BG papers look fresh and new. And looky there, a piece of that tricky to use glimmer glass. Success. :-)

Hope you were inspired by foreign words yourself this time around. Don't forget to share over at Flickr (here) with the tag WM#84. Can't wait to see what you create.
