I wonder, if, when the inventor of Scrabble (who apparently was named Alfred M. Butts) invented Scrabble, if he anticipated that, decades later, his game pieces would become such a hot item in the world of arts & crafts supplies.
The first time I saw a Scrabble component used in such a way, was in Littleput's genius Scrabble journal, which uses the actual game board as a cover.
And then came her delightful Scrabble tile pendants.
What does this painting have to do with Scrabble, you ask? Well...as Littleput proved with her journal...the tiles aren't the only valuables in that Scrabble box! I did the above painting on an actual Scrabble board!
It will be listed in my shop tonight. In real life, the background is sparkly and glittery and that is completely lost in the scan. <insert sad face> I wanted to use more of the layout of the actual Scrabble game -- the squares and everything, in the painting, but Scrabble boards do not accept paint readily and easily, let me tell you! (The girl and her dice-seat and game pieces were actually painted on seperate canvas and collaged on.)
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I have plans for the little letter holder thingys, too! And, yeah, I may even have to use a tile or two...though no pendants here. :)
I hope your July is off to a super duper dreamy start! May there be many adventures this month for us all!
