Alice In Her Garden



I am thrilled and honoured to say that lovely Indigoblu invited me to stay on their Design Team for another year. They are all such lovely and talented ladies and gent.They have been very kind and understanding as I have developed another  serious health problem, and I am currently boggled eyed with strong painkillers! 

Can you spot a shrunken Alice taking a stroll in her colourful and beautiful garden above?

I painted the inexpensive wooden frame with Grandmas Teacup. When the paint was dry, I dabbed Snow White paint onto the numbers stamp, and I randomly  stamped it around the frame.



For the background, I cut a piece of Watercolour card to fit inside of the frame.I mixed Grandmas Teacup, Iced Gem, and Olive paints with some water to give it the fluidity of Watercolours. I spritzed the paper with water and added the washes of colour. When it was still wet I sprinkled the lovely luscious powders over the top.I also used paint to stamp "Kindness Matters" from the Mindfulness stamp set.


I used paints instead of inks to stamp the flowers over the background.I also stamped some on another piece of card for cutting out.

I used Stazon to stamp Alice and the bees onto shrink plastic, and shrunk them.Alice is of course used to shrinking! I adhered the bees to some twisted wire.

After adhering the background inside of the frame, I added some Coarse texture paste inside the bottom of the frame. It held the flowers both stamped and pressed, bees and of course Alice in place. When dry I painted over the texture paste with Olive paint.

I added  some more flowers to the front of the frame.  I stamped and coloured a beautiful butterfly, and sat her in the top left corner of the frame, where she could  oversee events.


You could also apply these steps to easily create a greeting card instead of a framed picture.

Please visit the Indigoblu blog to see what the rest of the talented Design Team have created

Die Cut Essentials Magazine

I picked up Die  Cut Essentials today, and they have kindly included my bendi card, which I made with the Freshwater Die set, and stamps. As usual I created the background with watercolours, I love watercolours!


This is a lovely lake close to where I live. Let's hope the sunny weather continues...

If you have a Hobbycraft store near you they are selling 5 x 7 cards at half price, they have a few other bits of pieces in their clearance section  but you need to delve in to search for them! They seem to sell more toys than craft products now and hardly any stamps or accessories at all!

Thank you for visiting xx

Magical Fairy Book

 
Inside the magical Fairy world!

 
I used a Tando Creative Mini Printer Tray for my Magical Fairy book. As I was going to use Watercolours,I put a coating of gesso onto the pieces first.

 
I stamped Lavinia Stamps onto shrink plastic and shrunk them down, so they would be just the right size to sit happily in the printer tray.

 
The front cover, the fairies are happily sitting in the Enchanted Forest.They are wondering where all the other fairies are.....

 
The inside front cover.

 
Here are the fairies!

 
And the deers, and horses, and don't forget the hare..

 
Or the unicorn,

 


 
I added glass beads on the sides of the book and painted over them with Indigoblu  Iced Gem Paint


Thank you Fairy much for visiting me today xx

Meet Me Under The Stars

I am starting the fourth week with this rotten virus,it seems to be doing the rounds and just wont go away! Today I was able to play with my new Lavinia Stamps which I had for Christmas, aren't they lovely!

I used watercolours to create the background, and I flicked white acrylic paint with some irresdescent medium mixed into it for the stars.

I stamped and fussy cut the foxes and used 3D sticky pads to adhere them to the background.

Thank you so very much for visiting me today, I hope you have escaped this virus!

What a Surprise!

I discovered today that my little Christmas box (3 inch square) won the Readers Challenge in Papercraft Inspirations! I gave this box to my Mother for Christmas and filled it with lip balms and little chocs.

I made the box some time ago with some beautiful Forest Magic stamps which came with the magazine. I wrote a few words about it here.

My talented friend Sandra's gorgeous card was published too!

Thank you so much for visiting. May you have many happy days in 2017!

A Breath of New Year Air

I made a much smaller bauble than this one for The Craft Stamper Christmas Decoration Art Call, and I was so lucky to have it selected for publication. So I thought why not make a larger and different one to see in 2017! I made this especially for Indigoblu, and you can see lots of other wonderful projects by the Indigoblu International Design Team here.

I found a box of inexpensive baubles in Hobbycraft which separated in half. Which are just perfect for this project.

I began by stamping the dog from the Indigoblu Clumber Park Stamp set, and fussy cut him. Being sure to leave tabs under his feet as these will be pushed into the snow later.

I die cut 2017 from Shrink Plastic and shrunk it with a heat gun, but this can also be done in an oven.

I mixed texture paste and Unicorn sparkles together and spooned it into each side of the bauble. I had gathered some thyme from the garden and used this as winter trees,

I stood the dog into the back half of the bauble a long with some thyme.

I hung the 2017 onto the trees branches, and added a dab of glue to help keep them in place.

I stood the New Years tree into the snow in the front half of the bauble. When both sides were dry I pushed them together, and hung it with a white ribbon.

Thank you so much for visiting me today : )

Magical Winter Unicorn Forest


I used a Lavinia Stamps Unicorn, and he told me that he wanted to be in a Magical Winter Forest! I decided to use a mixture of watercolours, glass beads, and gems to make a mystical home for him.

A close up pic of the frosty icicles, I love glass beads! : )

The Wishing Tree

On the Morning of Christmas Eve some very special deers gather around the Wishing Tree. This tree is the tallest one in the forest, and it is covered in twinkling stars. The deers know how very lucky they are, as they have magical abilities which bring joy to so many all over the world. So on this special morning they gather around their tree to give heartfelt thanks, and they each close their eyes tightly and make a special wish.......

You can find all the details about how I created this Wishing Tree on the Indigoblu Blog.

May all your Christmas Wishes come true xxx
