TIO# 69 - Fun and Games

Thanks for all those lovely dreams and comments last week. It is great to see you here, as always, so on with the challenge for this week's dream...

The theme this week is fun and games, so you have a wide interpretation here. I chose to do some images from the UMount Bingo sheet and my embellishments are from a little shadow box project I did with Stamp Addicts moons ago!! It was a tic tac toe, or noughts and crosses game I think, and we removed the these tiles to stamp and alter the tray... great fun - here it is, I don't think I ever posted it before!!!


So I hope you have a good week, and have fun and games with this week's dream, but don't forget to use at least one real stamp.
ENJOY
Love and Light

TIO #68 - Paying Spring Forward!!

Well, I don't know about you, but I am FED UP with this winter... long, dull, dark and miserable. We had a tiny bit of sunshine earlier - you will remember that, I hope... my dad told me the sun is a bright orb in the sky and it's called the sun, and it can make your skin go a nice brown colour!!! But now it is as dismal as ever outside.....

So this week's challenge is to pay Spring forward - ie do spring now BEFORE we get it!!! I chose butterfly as it is a real harbinger of better weather, but there are many different Springtime images you could chose, so I leave it up to you - please just remember to use at least one real stamp.. My tag is part of a book I am making for my wonderful daughter, Miranda and you can see it here if you are interested

ENJOY your dreaming this week
Love and Light

TIO #67 - Time to Tag

Sorry to be late this week... poorly husband and grandson, then dodgy connection!!! MUST get it done soon, it makes me cross keep throwing me off the net!!!

So this week, I would like you to create a dream about time on your tag... I made this one for my Inspirations book, which is almost finished now... will post it up on my DragonsWeb blog when it's done. Same rules as always... please use any kind or shape or size of tag, but with at least one real stamp, rubber or otherwise!!! I used the fab mask from Sir Tim. The little watch charm is one of Sir Tim's typo pieces with a little clock stamped in it from UMount Time sheet... those pieces come with domed faces, so that's what gives it its cuteness!! Please have a go and ENJOY!!!
Love and Light

TIO #66 - Zentangle

Thanks for all the dreams last week... there were some beauties.. This week xin nian kuaile - happy new year, but we are not doing that!!! neither are we doing  Valentine's...  In the same spirit as I always have, I wanted to explore something different and zentangling was new to me this week... I looked it up on YouTube and you will find many wonderful demos... I recommend you look at it, as it is such fun and so settling!!!

So that's the challenge this week... to zentangle, but to use at least one REAL stamp... this piece was coloured using happy birthday big and juicy and a speedball - my pen was not waterproof so I could not use my wonderful distress inks!! The stamp was from the set Avant garde, from Stamp in the Hand.  I hope you will join in and ENJOY!!!
Love and light
Frankie
