Dragon pods

Good afternoon all, 
hope you are having a lovely Tuesday.
I am just back from the post office, samples safely on their way. 

Today I am going to share a Lavinia make with you. 

I have just finished it and made it just for fun. 
You see I bought some plastic coloured hoops from Aldi a while ago and 
I just needed an excuse to use them. 
They were so reasonable, I just wasn’t sure where or when I was going to play with them. 
My original idea was to Gesso them, but then I changed my mind. 

The background is one of my workshop demos, using colour box inks, 
Gelli plate, and then Brusho powders. 
Followed with some  stamping , a moon mask and some distress ink blending. 

Next I stamped onto some white tissue paper, and added some colour. 

It was fun getting the tissue into the ring,,,I am definitely not an embroidery expert! 

I attached the ring into place with 3d glue gel, and added some splats of Posca pen. 

Finally a few little butterflies finish off the design. 
As part of the dt it is my job to bring lots of different designs and techniques to you, 
Some you may love, some you may dislike, 
and some may even bore you...
Now I wonder where this fits in, 

Take care all, 
Adam and Danielle have taken Elliot and Jenson to visit my parents today, 
so that is lovely, 
Hope they can keep cool in the car whilst travelling. 

Enjoy your afternoon whatever you get up too. 

Much love and hugs
