Believe in Daydreams - Zan Von Zed Lady of Leisure

 A daily dose of daydreaming heals the heart, soothes the soul, 
and strengthens the imagination.

Hey there from Nannyland,

When I actually have a moment to daydream, I can imagine myself as an enchanting maiden like the one in this grayscale image coloring book created by  Zan Von Zed.   Her amazing fantasy images are full of heroines in lovely gowns like the ones I admired in the beloved fairytales of my childhood.  I'm not certain I would trade my jeans and converse sneakers for a medieval frock, but I'd sure like to try it on to see how if feels to look this regal.  I'd love to have some luscious golden locks  thick enough to tie back with a stunning headdress. How would it be to have nothing more important to do than roam a lush garden maze  outside a timeworn gothic castle?   But in my world,  I would have to insist on a lavish ensuite bathroom with a huge shower and closet full of dry cleanable gowns.  That's where I wake up and realize how happy I am to be born in this era full of the creature comforts of life. What did that girl do without a cell phone?

I colored this image with Copics and created a dainty background that would accentuate her intriguing feminine gaze. I die cut the outer Spellbinders frame from iridescent white textured card stock and the inner insert from blue mottled designer paper which I lined with a gold leafing pen. The image was fussy cut and adhered to the background with mounting tape.  I adorned the frame with sparkly lavender gems and added a gold foiled sentiment.

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.

  7. I love your narrative about this fancy lady, whom you have colored beautifully. But if you were of the class in that era that could wear such clothes and wonder around the garden, your frocks would be as good as dry cleaned as they would just appear in your closet ready to wear at your whim lol Cell phone? Well that may be a bit hard to match.
