LTD - People and or Places

Hilda always tells us the week before what the challenge theme will be at Lots to do so why do i always wait until the week to make my entry? This was going to be a vintage street scene until my shower this morning, lots of inspiration in the shower!

One of my favourite places in the world is Stone Henge, might have mentioned that before. When growing up we would go there some Sundays and you could walk amoung the stones and touch them and really explore the site. The magic stuck. The whole of that plains area has ancient roots full of myth and magic, it used to be said the Merlin raised the stones.

Lots of techniques here brayered B&J on glossy card for the Henge scene. Distressed ink on mat card for the topper Wizard stamped and embossed on same card added as a final layer. Wizard and Dragon coloured with Pro Markers. If you look closly you will see that the lock is upside down!

  1. Ooh, love the colours and the images. I have a real fondness for any standing stones and anything Arthurian or Merlinesque. Fabby dabby!

  5. Fab Zoe ! I love the aperture and the colours you've used are gorgeous. I wouldn't have spotted the lock if you hadn't pointed it out, it's not unique if there isn't a little quirk :-) Sue C x
