dragonflies

Hello,
I'm back from a relaxing holiday in Greece, batteries fully recharged, the only downside I have after a while not crafting is finding my mojo back. This is my first piece I made in a couple of weeks


This is my calendar entry for June at The Craft Barn where we needed to use lavender and dragonflies.
I started by stamping dragonflies randomly on my page and heatembossing it in white. Next I sprayed with aftermidnight Dylusions spray

The white lines were not supposed to happen, those are the edge of my acrylic block, oops, but I actually like the effect. I searched for a quote with dragonflies and found this one: 
May you touch dragonflies and stars, dance with fairies and talk to the moon.
Now I knew which direction this page needed to go, so I added gold star stickers, stamped a fairy couple and stamped and cut the moon out of a sun stamp and gave her red glossy lips. Because the blue was not really lavender I made a tag using a tag from clothes, painted it lavender, stamped a frame and wrote the quote in it and added a lavender bow, so I can also enter this for the weekly Craft Barn Challenge.

Transport

This is my entry for this week's Craft Barn challenge


If not clear, the theme for this week was transport. As we are leaving with the plane in just a few days (in fact I'm writing this in between packing suitcases) I chose that way of transport.
I started by glueing some pieces of a map on an index card (for some reason however the paper doesn't want to take the glue?? or my glue is no good anymore??) Next I added some pale pink, skin tone, all over and a border and here and there a swipe of ochre. Wanted a vintage look, got a vintage look. Next up came some random stamping, so it looks like a passport or postcard.
Stamped the airplane, embossed it with distress powder, outlined it and gave it some windows.
