Hi everyone, I'm back from France, refreshed and raring to get back to some crafting!
Thank you so much for your kind comments while I've not been here. I am trying to catch up with everyone, and although I can't promise to comment on all of your posts, I am looking forward to seeing what you have been doing!
Today's post though is about something I did before I went away.
I was honoured to be asked by Julie Ann to be Guest Designer again at Dragons Dream - the theme - Brown and Crackle - Oh! how I love crackle!
I painted my tag with Paper Artsy Snowflake Fresco paint, followed by Crackle glaze then a layer of Mocha Mousse. I used the Snowflake to stamp some random text on too!
I stamped a butterfly onto some smooth paper and coloured them with Cosmic Shimmer paints that seem to be lasting forever - they give a lovely sheen! The under wings were painted with watered down copper acrylic paint.
I added ripped book page to my tag that had a coat of spritzed Distress inks - Brushed Corduroy and (probably)Evergreen Bough.
The 'FLY' was in my scraps box so decided to use that - edged with Copper paint. I also edged the whole tag with copper.
The Design Team at Dragons Dream are so talented so I hope you will take a look at what they have done with this brilliant theme!
In keeping with the brown and crackle theme I thought you might like to see these photos taken in Troyes on that first day of our holiday three weeks ago.
Troyes is a truly beautiful city with lots of Mediaeval buildings still in use - even though this was the start of our holiday it is the place I remember most.
I hope to be back with more holiday snaps soon!
Thanks for looking, Chris
