Emboss It!

Dragon's Dream TIO Challenge #54 - Emboss It

I'm a bit earlier this week with my entry. The background is embossed using the script plate and my trusty cuttlebug. Then I have brushed over the embossing with a brilliance inkpad. The main image is a paper artsy stamp I have had for simply ages - in fact it is one of the first stamps I ever bought, from my local craft shop, before I became aware of internet shopping for my crafting supplies! The image is adorned with a couple of feathers from my stash and raised with sticky fixers. The whole is finished off with yarn and ribbon from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by. I welcome your comments - good or not so good!

Oriental in Two Colours

Dragons Dream TIO#53 - Oriental in Two Colours
Again, I've only just made it with this one. I really must get my act in order. My offering today is made using a plate from the Stamp Man, and distress inks in two colours, shabby shutters and voctorian velvet. I have then lightly coloured the image using pink and green polycolour pencils.
Thanks for dropping by.

New Craft Room

I finally moved into my new craft room on Sunday, and spent the next two days just getting it sorted out. I don't know how all that stuff fitted into there! It really is so much bettet than trying to craft in the dining room. I still have a few things to sort out. I need to buy a tv for in there, and the broadband connection doesn't work in there either. I think it will needed to be hard-wired or something.

We also need to get doors made to go between my craft room and Rob's model room, which incidentally, is bigger than my craft room! I tried my hardest to get him to swap but no joy there. I do have the nicest view, and I will be further away from our son whose flat adjoins the model room. I will be able to use the side door from the model room as a short-cut to the house.

Anway, I am really pleased with it. It looks fairly tidy at the moment, and Rob hopes I will keep it like that. Fat chance!

Sorry for the staggered way the photos appear. I tried to get them in two rows but no joy. I did think about taking a video or the room but thought I might have problems uploading it onto here as I have never done that before. Anway, it gives you a chance to take a look - before I mess ot all up!
Bye for now.
