Dragons Dream TIO #153 Film, Texture, Embellishment and a hint of Red

Over at the Dragons Dream TIO Silvia has chosen the theme of a Film of your choice, Texture, Embellishment and a hint of Red, and of course at least one real stamp on your tag.
I had to choose Harry Potter, although I couldn't narrow it down to one particular film, as long as Alan Rickman is in it I don't mind lol.
I love these Grahpic45 papers and stamps, they are just right for my theme. I added texture with Grunge Paste and wiped paint over with a baby wipe, so that I didn't cover up the pattern on the paper underneath, then added a mix of ink and gilding wax to finish off.
My cobweb embellishment was cut out on Cricut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and smooshed with ink.
We would love to see you join in out challenge, just please remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag.

Llandudno Craft Fair

Have just realised that I hadn't shared any photo's from the craft fair at Llandudno, I've been so busy making things ready for the next one that I forgot, ups.
Am trying really hard to have an entire table of new stuff for the next fair, but not sure that will happen in time.
The next one is on Saturday 16th November so still have a little time left to make some more xxx

The Craft Bug - with Ali Craft

We had a fabulous day out at Chirk yesterday at The Craft Bug with Ali and Iain from Ali Craft, and a great group of crafters.
We made an altered box with a drawer decorated with anything and everything!!
Buttons, beads, skulls, birdcages, shoes, lace, flowers and more were covered in lashings of metallic paint and then smooshed over with Treasure Gold.
I stepped out of my colour comfort zone and opted for pink and green papers from BoBunny to line the drawer with, I just need to go over the corners with a Pro Marker where the papers don't quite meet, shssssh lol.
It was a great day and fab to catch up with the Girls, ups and Iain.

Dragons Dream TIO #152 TV Show,Fabric, Neutrals and Bling

This time over at the Dragons Dream Helen has chosen the theme of a TV Show, Fabric, Cream/Neutrals and Bling/Sparkles.
I've gone with Brideshead Revisited, an amazing series set in beautiful surroundings with the very gorgeous Jeremy Irons as one of the leading men, what more could a girl ask for!
There was a Teddy in the series and I think he was called Mr Algenon if I remember correctly. So "Sleeping George" from IndigoBlu is playing the role for my tag, along with lots of Prima flowers and a mixture of bling, and some crotcheted lace from the craft shop at Denman College.

Dragons Dream TIO #151

It's the fabulous Trace's turn to chose the theme over at the TIO blog and she would lke to see you use a word, brown, die-cuts and lots of layers.
Typography is a perfect word for the daughter of a printer, and as I bought the stamps to go with the paper pad that I won from Ali Craft, I thought I would christen them!
Love the new Potting Soil Archival ink pad by Wendy Vecchi it's a great vintage shade.
