Dragons Dream Tag It On #155

Whew – just made the last challenge in time – now for the next one.

The recipe this time at Dragons Dream Tag It On  is “a book of your choice as inspiration plus - Stencil/Mask, Paint and the colour green along with the obligatory stamp and tag.”

I am an avid reader – I certainly read a lot more as a child and one of my favourites was Anne of Green Gables.


I used a Stencil called Karen’s Houses on a Prima tag and a Prima Black Chalk Ink through it.  I ten got out my watercolour paints and completed the background.  This is where I discovered that the black was not “set”, even when dry!

I used a Magnolia “Tilda” stamp, coloured her with the watercolour paints and popped her up on foam squares.  Here is another view:


Not a huge amount of technique involved but I like it.

Cheers, Esther xoxo


  1. What a cute little girl!. I like the 3D effect as she steps out towards the houses. Simple but effective. I loved that book as a child and read it lots of times. Julie Ann xx

  2. I loved Anne too, well done and thanks for playing along with the Dragons.

  3. Such a lovely tag. I don't know this book, but your tag looks great. Thanks for dreaming with us at Dragons Dream Tag It On.

  4. I've never read that book although have seen the film. I love the way the ink has run it looks fab. Great tag thanks for sharing with us at Dragons Dream TIO. Elizabeth x
