Medieval Times at just for Fun

In days of old when Knights were bold and wenches hearts were won, he'd don a suit in hot pursuit until until the job was done


It's the last week of my choice at Just For Fun of time travelling and we are taking a big leap this time back to the medieval period where fact and fiction till us stories of knight slaying dragons, maidens in distress and magic in the woods .
I have taken my inspiration  from the illuminated pages made by the monks the frame is made from a Crafty Individual boarder stamp as is the little flourish ( I used the flitter glue and metal flakes wow is it good and so easy to use )on a distress ink background and a TH flourish peeking out from behind my maiden
 
Now don't forget to check out Neet and Zoe's creations for more inspiration :)
Aren't you glad I take take you back any further to the prehistoric era lol

LOVE this, Von - Medieval is my favourite period and I have a bit of a 'thing' about Arthurian Literature, even studying some as part of my degree! Love the gold bits and the frame is perfect x
