Ally Pally Craft Show





I decided to brave a visit to the Ally Pally Craft Show today. It was very, very busy So we didn't stay long, as I am not too well.


Sadly Indigoblu were not there this time : (


I discovered two new (to me) companies with lovely products 



I always like to use natural elements in my projects so I was delighted to discover Anna Marie Designs. They have the most gorgeous natural products and stunning creations! 


As I am an Alice fan it was nice to find some original and different Alice designs at Dolly Dimple Crafts


Clarity Stampswere very busy and I tried to watch Barbara Gray give a demo, I couldn't see much but the finished result was wonderful!


Jenny Maye was there with Hobbyart too, with lovely projects by the Design Team.

Dandelion Fairies


These two lovely Fairies are overlooking their field of dandelions. At midnight thousands of fairies emerge from the dandelions and twinkle and sparkle as they flitter  around. Some of them fly away and grant wishes for special,people, while others stay in the field and play and create magic. 


A sideways view of the card, the wings fold inwards so it fits in the envelope!

I watercoloured the background and stamped and heat embossed the dandelions and the lovely sentiment.

Thank you Fairy much for visiting us today.

Lavender Fields


This Majestic Deer stands proudly in his field of Lavender. He also loves to sleep in the Lavender field too as it soothes him to sleep.

I created  the background with water colours, and stamped the Lavender with two colours of Adirondack inks. I have heard a lot of good things about the new Distress Oxides so I am thinking about trying them out! I fussy cut some of the Lavender flowers and adhered them with foam pads to give some depth to the picture.

I hope you are all enjoying the summertime and all of the glorious flowers in bloom at this lovely time of year.

Thank you for stopping by 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

Fairy Bubbles

 
I was wheeling through the forest yesterday and I saw some little bubbles sparkling in the distance.I wonder where they were coming from.....

 
I added lots of glitter, and glossy accents on the bubbles, not sure if they show up very well in the photo.

 
I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to create this card and lots of watercolours!

Thank you for visiting today, Fairy Hugs xx

A Peep Into A Magical Land

 
Tread quietly... today we are peeping into a magical land... can you see the lovely horse and foal.Did you know that at midnight every night the fully grown horses start to magically grow a beautiful horn and turn into magnificent unicorns for the night. In this picture the mother is whispering to her child telling her all about the enchantment  she will enjoy when she is older !

If you would like to make an exploding  canvas you can find many and varied  videos on you tube to give you the basics. I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to make this magical land.I watercoloured the images and canvas, and I used pearl stickles on the enchanted toadstool, and a signo white pen on the pink flowers.I also slotted  in some skeleton leaves to add more layers and depth.
 

Thank you so much for visitng today and taking a peep into this magical world!

Playing Not Fighting

 

This is my dream of a world where everyone is kind and considerate, law abiding, and there is no illness, disease or disability.
Dream on....

 

A closer look, the Hares are playing not fighting! Sometimes you have to fight back though...
I watercoloured the background,and stamp embossed some ivy in enchanted gold. I bought the Hares to life with watercolours, and used more watercolours to make the flowers bloom and the little butterfly fly!

 

This is the card folded down, I just need to buy an envelope to fit it now!

Thank you for visiting today.

Yesterday at Ally Pally

 
I almost did not go to Ally Pally as I wasn't very well in the night, but I was determined! It was a wonderful  day and turned out to be a lovely sunny day here in London too!

 
I had a lovely time watching Tracey of Lavinia Stamps  demonstrating her gorgeous stamps. It was so nice chatting to her about all things fairy and magic! It's nice to escape into a magical world far away from reality sometimes : ) I treated myself to a few more stamps!

 
Look at the gorgeous work of the Design Team!!

 

 
I also met Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps who was so lovely.


 
She even gave me this picture she had just made in her demo! Thank you!

 

I eventually found the wonderful Indigoblu! I am annoyed with myself as I did not take a photo of Kay's wonderful face canvases. I was too busy admiring them ! Be sure to stop by the Indigoblu's Facebook page as there are very, very generous competitions happening !

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!

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! : )
