Another great inspirational piece.....

Sarah Cooper - Far Far Away

I drew inspiration from the rich, royal colors in this painting...
I scraped some pictures from the Live Jousts we watch every year at the Osgood Medieval Festival.
This man, playing Sir Eric or Ireland that year, is one of our favorite Jousters. Canadian (yeah!!!!) and always a Fan Favorite because he is also a very talented speaker, able to engage the crowds and promote audience participation.
Paper is DCWV Happily Ever After; as are the Epoxy stickers (mini blue corner dragons, shield, purple Celtic dragon and Knight on horseback), Crown Ribbon and the Knight & Shining Armor Rub-on (enhanced with 2 teal crystals).
The Stable is a photo of a medieval stable (located in France) printed on photo paper and cut out. I rubbed some blue chalk behind the image to bring it out a bit.
Swirly stamps in burgundy are Fancy Pants.
Key and Key hole are 7 Gypsies.
The Gold embossed Wings (Wing It) and Angel (Renaissance Angels) are Stampin'Up!, colored with chalks and a wet pen.

Hey Sarah!
I love that you try and come up with something a bit different. this looks like it was so much fun on the day :) Great photos too. I love how you try all little techniques like chalking, stamping etc... Well done!! - Cheers shazza
