Thankful Tilda

Hi everyone,
To those of you that have been here before, thank you for coming back.
For those that haven't, welcome to Dreamtime Designs :)

It has been a hectic week with getting my Daughter enrolled into her new high school.  It's definately an exciting time for her & I cannot believe how time has flown so quickly!  One minute they're little babies, then the next they're nearly as tall as you lol.

Also, can you believe its only about 5 weeks till Christmas??  Wow!

I had a wonderful time creating this new design, Thankful Tilda.
I checked out a few challenges & was inspired by a wonderful sketch @ Sketch Saturday.

So I couldn't help myself & just had to do it.  I turned the design around & this is how the design came together. The sketch layout sort of got hidden by the tag & flowers on my design, but I couldn't place them anywhere else lol.  I hope you like it.

What do you think?  Let me know in the comments.  I love friendly criticism :)

I would like to enter Thankful Tilda into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday #181 - Sketch
The Beary Scrap  #37 - Your Beary Best
Simon Says Stamp - Thank You
Charisma Cardz #45 - Lace & Pearls
Delightful Challenges - Bingo (Dimension, Ribbon/Lace, Glitter/Sparkle)
Just Magnolia #133 - Ribbons
Corrosive #137 - Give Thanks

You can find Thankful Tilda available for purchase in my Etsy Store.

Well thats about it today :)
I did however add a Facebook & Twitter button on the top right hand of the blog. So if you would like to follow & be updated with new designs etc, feel free to do so :)

Thanks for visiting & I hope you come back again.
Have a fantastic weekend.

Butterfly Tilda Spiral Notebook

Hi again everyone,
Hope you are all having a great week :)

This week I decided to try my hand at designing a spiral notebook.
It was alot of fun putting it together.  I hope you like it.

If you notice, I have used the same colours as my previous design.
This is purely due to wanting to add them as gift sets in my Etsy shop.
In the next few days you will see other designs added based on the same
colour combos.

Oh boy did I have fun trying to attach all the fiddly ribbons lol
However, they give the effect that I wanted :)

I would like to add my Butterfly Tilda Spiral Notebook design
into the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs #120 - Tic Tac Toe (Red, Flowers, Sewing)
Totally Stampalicious - 3D
Stamptacular #138 - Punch It
Belli #130 - Paper Piercing (old green cardstock)

Butterfly Tilda

I had a lot of fun creating this design.
When searching the challenges I came across the photo inspiration at Simon Says Stamp.

So I decided that the red & green theme would be fantastic for Remembrance Day & also because I have never used those colours before.
However, I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

Colouring Tilda was fun.  It has been a while since designing before I went to the UK nearly 12 months ago.  It's a fantastic feeling with being able to pick up & use my Copics again.  I never thought I would miss some colouring markers, but I did lol.

I was also inspired by the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

and this is how my design came together...

I would like to enter my Butterfly Tilda into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Photo Inspiration
Cupcake Craft #167 - Textalicious (used behind Tilda & chalk distressed)
Die Cut Dreams #102 - Recipe: 2 brads, 3 gems & 4 flowers
Incy Wincy Designs #119 - Stitching
Totally Stampalicious - Anything goes
Tuesday Throw Down #74 - Your favourite colour combo
Cute Card Thursday #190 - Reds for Rememberance
Bunny Zoe's Crafts #17 - Lace it up

My Butterfly Tilda design is now available for purchase in my Etsy store.
You can find it here:
Dreamtime Designs Etsy Store

I'm still looking for a Design Team to become a member of.
If you know of any that are currently looking for someone new,
please feel free to let me know.  Thanks :)

Thank you for your visit.
I appreciate it :)

Tilda in Blue Jeans

Hi everyone :)

Wow, its been quite some time since I have been on my blog.
As some of you know, last year on Christmas Day I went back to the UK for a visit to reunite with an old school flame (who found me on Facebook) who happened to be my first love when I was just 15.  I stayed there for 6 months, had a great time catching up with him & even got a job over there.  It was a great experience & was good to be back where I was born & bred after 25 years but unfortunately Peter & I didn't work out :(  I did however bring him back to Australia with me for a few months & was heartbreaking when he went back to the UK, but in some instances, some people are better off being close friends than being in a relationship.  We still keep in touch & he will always remain close to my heart.  Always!  Have any of you had a similar experience?  Please tell :)

Anyway, I am now back in the swing of creating designs with Tilda & I am absolutely loving it :)  Of course, I have checked out a few challenges that I would love to place Tilda in Blue Jeans into.

The challenge I love the most is Midnight Madness with their weekly sketch.  They help give me structure & point of inspiration when first putting the design together.  I'm quite happy with the way the design came together.  Here is the sketch:

This is what I came up with.  I hope you like it :)

I would like to enter Tilda into the following challenges:

Midnight Madness #128 - Sketch
Incy Wincy Designs #119 - Stitching
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Beary Sweet Challenge #37 - Your beary best
All That Scraps - Anything goes
Stampavie & More #155 - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz #44 - Cutesy

This Tilda in Blue Jeans design is now available for purchase in my Etsy store.
You can find it here:
Dreamtime Designs Etsy Store

Also, before you go :)  I am wanting to join a Design Team.
Do you know of any that are currently looking for a new team member?
If you could let me know that would be great.  Thanks :)

Thank you kindly for coming to visit.
It's great to be back :)
Take care.
