Dragons Dream TIO

Hello Followers and Friends. This week it's time to dream with the Dragons once more and it's my turn to choose a number for our current Numbers Challenge. Please click here to see the great tags our team and our lovely Guest Designer, Rein have come up with for inspiration this fortnight.



As you can see, the number I've chosen is 4. My background is created by blending the new PaperArtsy colours of Teresa Green and Captain Peacock diluted with some Satin Glaze, over Guacamole with a little Smurf and Chalk around the edges. I stamped the music score from RubberDance onto the background in Professor Plum. The tiny wooden bird and the feather are both painted with Smurf and edged with Classic Treasure Gold. The rider, off to seek her four - tune - so sorry for the bad pun - is a collage of my own artwork and vintage playing card with curled and Treasure Gold edges. The letters on my tiles were stamped with an alphabet stamp set from the gift shop, Tiger! When our children were young we were always reading them fairy tales in which heroes and heroines went out to see their fortune, usually with nothing but a red spotted handkerchief tied to a stick across their shoulders. Our son even went through a phase of ending all his stories - usually involving animals rather than human princes and princesses with '...and they all went off to seek their fortune and lived happily ever after.' If only life were that simple! 
Every new day is, I suppose, an opportunity to seek that elusive 'Fortune'. It might not be a chest of treasure or a pile of banknotes fluttering toward us on a magical breeze! What we're seeking is probably something far more precious: peace, contentment, fulfilment or love fill the treasure chest most of us long to discover. I hope that your week is filled with these and a big heap of time and energy to create too.
