Dream a little Dream - Pt 1

This is all about Fanstasy!

We want you to unleash your imagination and show us your dreams.

Have fun and check out these creations for some inspiration.


My grandma implanted in me my love for nature fairies. I remember she had an old book that she read to me that had lovely poems about the year's seasons and the most adorable paintings of gnomes, flower princesses, bugs, moths, fairies and other magical creatures. So this is my version of what fairies do when they know that noone is watching. 



Dream a little dream of magical lands and little wonders. For this month's Dare inspiration, I went with a wee wonder... a whimsical little fairy in a sparkly magical land in the form of an ATC.  The fairy with flower stamp was stamped on vellum and coloured with a combination of emboss powders, markers, and watercolour pencil crayons prior to being fussy cut out. Pop by my blog to learn more about this little wonder.

Ah, dreams--just a bit out of my comfort zone! I guess for most people they consist of fairies, unicorns, dragons and other sorts of whimsical creatures. Mine don't, so I had to "feature imagination". I just love Emerald Creek's unique embossing powders, and I used plenty on this wall hanging to bring my fairy to life. It you have time, I'd love it if you stopped by sarascloset to see all the lovely shimmer on both my fairy and my background.
