TIO #89 Travel - Time to make a quick get away!

This week over at DragonsDream TIO Frankie is encouraging us to dream about travel and getting away from it all, I wish!!! I've had a very busy summer with lots of extra Country Markets, Artisan Crafts Events and Agricultural shows (yep you read that right lol). I have a weekend break planned for my Birthday in Caernarfon, where I'll be spending the two days at the Castle, on a friendly plastic course with the fantastic Liz Welch. My dream this week evolved from playing with some Tattered Angels misters in a mix of many colours. I added some more colour with milled lavender and faded jeans distress inks, than embossed the dragonflies with a moonglow embossing powder in hyacinth blue/jade. The picture is from a HOTP book of travel collage. Hope you like and pop over via the link of my sidebar to join in this weeks challenge. Elizabeth x
I forgot to add this on this morning, it's an old luggage label that I found in the loft with an address for a hotel in Colwyn Bay. Who knew Thomas Cook had been around so long LOL

Lovely tag Elizabeth, the Oriental theme is different and so serene looking.

Fabulous colours and so dreamy. The oriental look is so different. Love the Cook tag - what a find! Not long until we spend the weekend with Liz Welch at Caernarfon, can't wait! I do hope she does some mixed media work with us.
