I DREAM AND YEARN WITH THE DRAGONS......

Hello my Lovelies, back with another tag to enter the challenge with the Dragons here, this was a stumper for me,  the letter Y and transport.... I had NO stamp or anything to do with transport,
"Tonniece" to the rescue, she stamped a few things and some lovely die cuts, I didn't use them all :). The dragon team have made some amazing tags...


I started with a black and white vintage design  card stock, applied watered gesso over it, dripped and splashed some ecoline ink, sepia and burnt sienna  all over, made some circles through some sequin waste, with brown corduroy, stamped some script. Roughed up all the edges and curled the corners, I tore out a backing of the corrugate, went over it lightly with rusty hinge paint, added inca gold all around the edges, on the car, bike and pumpkin coach.


I used some old letters from a game for my word, inked them with rusty hinge, I added a thick layer of clear nail polish, wasn't thick enough so I used some crackle accents around the letters, then some poge with clear rock candy, edged them with my inca gold.


                           I Yearn for the time we all believed
                           in magic and fairy tales, when one
                           would look at the bottom of the gardens
                                             for the fairies...
( the coach is my stamp, I didn't think I could create a tag with only this stamp)

I Yearn for the days when riding a dangerous vehicle was a penny farthing and a Sunday drive in a model T Ford, driving slow enough to see and drink in the country side.
The penny farthing is a die cut and I fussy cut the car, used foam tape to add the dimension, colored them with copics.


For the topping I punched 2 holes with my cropadile, added some curly yarns, that was from a purse handle, I made a bow with some string from a burlap bag I just took apart, I painted a tiny wooden oval with rusty hinge, stamped a Y, edged it with inca gold. I tried making the bow like our Lovely Miss Tracy Evan, as she does,
 she makes the most gorgeous bows...
I have been dealing with my interest provider, after many, many conversations, they were NO help so now I had to re sign up with all you Lovelies with my new address, put my new email address on top of my blog, it will be wonderful to get some mail in I have been in withdrawals. They wanted me to get my mail on the web, NOT, I like my outlook program, anywho, things should be better, they better be I 'm doing a creative blog hop on Sept 8th, see you then.
Thanks so much for visiting my nest , you make my day, ((( BIG HUGS )))
                                       
                                          NAMASTE!!!!

I just love the poem too!The yarns are wonderful too. I really loved looking at this beautiful tag. I too felt quite challenged by this theme; but once I got started I so enjoyed creating it!

Hi Dianne.....sorry to hear you have had internet problems.....its such a pain when that happens. Hope it is all sorted. Your tag is fantastic and I yearn for days where time was enjoyed and seemed to go past more slowly.....not like the fast pace of today.
Its lovely to share with crafty friends too.
Warm wishes

Dianne...I feel your pain with the internet problems you've been having. Nothing is more exasperating, except possibly car trouble or dental problems. :) Your tag is awesome. I really like the background and stamping you've done on it. I also like the corrugated backing. That bit of texture adds alot. Love the car, too! A really nice job of coloring it. You always leave the nicest comment on my blog. I wanted to take the time to stop by and thank you for them! They always make me feel so good! <3 Candy

Hello gorgeous magpie!! I'm sorry I've been away doing delightful grandmotherly things and not been around to visit you. Your transport tag has me yearning for the good old days when things were indeed slower and we did look for fairies in the garden! I think that pumpkin coach is a hoot! The whole thing with all its sweet details is spectacular!

I'm delighted to hear that you are doing the Creative Blog Hop! I even have a button you can have that says you've been tagged. It's over on my salad bar if you'd like.

And I've just started the second NBUS challenge, if you get a chance for a play!

It's been so good to see you! I'm going to have a lovely stroll backwards, being careful not to fall as my eyes go out on stalks and my jaw drops to the floor! Huge hugs! Darnell

What a great tag for this challenge Dianne! I just love the distressed stripped cardboard backing - and all the stampings on the card stock - the twine framing really completes it! Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving me such a nice comment too!
