Leaving soon for a Magical Mystery Tour...


It's another sunny spring day here in the UK - hope everything is ok wherever you are in the world and your Saturday has been good.

I spent the day repairing my Time machine ready for a long trip and some exciting adventures this month.
The AJJ theme in April is 'Magical Mystery Tour' and the host this month is Hazel from Hazels Creative Moments  and Hazel would like to see where we will go.. it can be in the past or future, into a story or anywhere we can imagine - there are so  many possibilities and my head is buzzing with lots of ideas.

I digitally designed the machine using Serif Drawplus and Craft Artist and a few of my photos and pieces I had already created. The carpet is one of my Gelli prints and the other elements are either clip art or from digi-kits.
The words on the page say:
'My Time Machine
 has been serviced
And I'm ready to go today,
on a month long
Magical Mystery Tour.
P.S I'll be back before May!'

The idea for this Time Machine was based on the photo below
 of one of my husbands ancestors
Enjoy the rest of the weekend... 
Thanks for stopping by

  8. Aww love your time machine wish I could come too I must say that carpet looks very lush Gill beautiful work with the Gelli prints.xx

  9. I love the time machine Gill. Your steampunk style is fabulous!

  10. This challenge is just up your very imaginative street, Gill.
    How clever to design a Time machine and I'm glad it has been serviced.
    Interesting to have made a gelli-printed carpet too.
    I immensely love your header, I could look at it for ages.

  11. Can't wait to see where your time machine takes us Gill. I've got some great ideas myself. This should be fun. Beautiful machine too. Maybe you take passengers 😀Hugs erika

    1. well I think there's probably just enough room for 2 people Erika if you'd like to come too. but maybe I need to invest in a trailer for the vehicle soon :)

  12. fantastic, love all elements did you used!

  13. Auch dieses ist wunderbar! Insbesondere auch der Start, das Foto von einem der Vorfahren deines Mannes. Da muss man ersteinmal drauf kommen! Ich mag die Atmosphäre in deinem Bild und alle diese kleinen Details!
    Und vergiss bitte nicht, dass du nichts in der Vergangenheit verändern darfst, wenn du mit deiner Zeitmaschine unterwegs bist. So wie du im Post von heute geschrieben hast. Ich möchte nämlich noch viele deiner Zeitreisen hier sehen :)

  14. This is just brilliant: You looked at an old photo and got so many new ideas for this gorgeous page! Your time machine is fantastic - especially the two bulbs! And I like all the other things that surround it, the beautiful clock, the great stairs, these lattice windows, and your gelli-carpet!

  15. A fantastic page.
