Tonight, the Syfy channel is airing the last Merlin show. Yes, this is a totally geeking out post. Next to Doctor Who, Merlin was my top favorite show to watch. I am so disappointed that it is the last of such a great show. There are rumors of a show with the knights coming back, who knows...I will be stalking though.
Merlin is a BBC show and not a Syfy show, but here in the US, Syfy picked it up to air it. They delayed the ending, which Merlin fans were not happy with (including ME)...after last week's show, I had to finally see the last one NOW...so I've been able to see it in segments on YouTube, but will gladly watch the entirety of it again tonight.
So in honor of my most favorite show... I used the intro the Great Dragon always said: "In a land of myth, and a time of magic, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young man. His name, Merlin."
At the bottom, I added what the Great Dragon says as well..."It has been a privilege to know you, young warlock."
I used mostly new products...but that red PP is a year old or more. I used gel medium (Mod Podge would work) to attach the square cut out (which I created from the design one of the high priestesses had tattooed on her arm). You can download it here. It's not perfect, but it worked for what I wanted on the background. I used two. You can resize it smaller if you like. The gel medium helped with the sequins and stars too...I wanted them sprinkled and not placed. So they stuck where they dropped.
I used vellum to print on, because I wanted to include those quotes, but not take away from the layout...I just lightly layered them on top. And I had to add "I was born with it." I can hear him saying that...can you see it right under his photo?
Okay...thank you for letting me geek out a little. I'm sure Syfy will show re-runs or even BBCAmerican. I know I will watch them again and hopefully have the DVD collection one day.
Have a great weekend! I may be not back with a blog post until later next week, but I'll be checking in on Facebook and Instagram.
