GD for DD

Yes, those lovely folk at Dragons Dream TIO have invited me to be Guest Designer for their new topic 'Black and Stencils' - Thank you, especially Helen who has chosen this recipe!

As you may know I love stencils and if you saw my post yesterday you may also like to know that in my teens I spent a lot of time wearing black - much against my Mum's wishes - she would have preferred me to be more girly!!
Like a lot of girls in those days I would dream of being a model like Twiggy, which then got me thinking about photographs which then led to a "What If?"….photographs had been around in the Middle Ages, which led to this..any excuse to use my favourite stamps!
  Peacock Feathers DI all over the tag then stencils using blue, black and gold.
The images are all Lynne Perella by Paper Artsy. The film reel is using a punch I've had since I started crafting.
Of course, these aren't the real characters from that time  - just actors - extras in a film and these are the stills!!!

Hope you have lots of fun with your stencils - the Dragons Dream Design Team have!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh Chris, this is great! I so loved Twiggy back in the day! Oh, how I longed to be like her, but I was a tiny five foot nothing with tight, dark curly hair! It was great when curls came into fashion eventually and I didn't have to get a perm, though! This is a brilliant idea for a tag - those lovely Lynne Perrella images all on a film strip - fantastic! Great to have you with us, dreaming your beautiful dreams with the Dragons. xxx
