Tast 7, Outside the Frame, Alphabet

Take a Stitch Tuesday - this week's stitch is detached chain or lazy daisy stitch and this is my rather untidy sample. I've used patches of vintage fabrics, some transfer printed lace, a little painted fabric and a beaded fringe with large sequins on the end.
The Three Muses challenge is 'Outside the frame - Birds' and I was thinking outside the cage for some reason and started something with that in mind, eventually it dawned on me - frame not cage. I have used one of my collaged paintings and added the frame digitally [frame from Graphics Fairy, birds and rabbit are found images from magazines]

There was an 'alphabet' challenge on Inspiration Avenue a few weeks ago and I meant to post these but I never got around to it. The top one is all drawn with promarker pens and the bottom one is a collage.
