Blooms

 


I hope the sun is shining with you today. I have upcycled this little watering can and filled it with beautiful blooms!, butterflies, and bees! 


 


As the watering can had a layer of existing paint, I used sand paper to throughly scratch the existing  paint. This provided a better surface for a layer of Steam Whistle paint to adhere to the metal.


 



When the paint was drying I stamped 20 flowers from the Victorian  Garden set. I used watercolour pens directly on the stamps so I could add green for the leaves and two coordinating colours for the flowers.I fussy cut the flowers leaving a little tab underneath them. I cut a piece of dry oasis to fit into the watering can, and pushed my flowers into it.



 



The butterflies and bee stamps are too large in relation to the watering can, so I stamped them onto shrink plastic.After shrinking I coloured them with Luscious which I had mixed with a little bit of water.It gives them a lovely gleam and sparkle!


 


I adhered the butterflies and bees onto some silver wire which I had curled around a pokey tool to give it more stability. The butterflies and bees happily flew into the flowers and I pushed the wire into the oasis.I also added some dried lavender amongst the flowers, to give a lovely aroma.


 


 I cut a circle out of some chipboard which I recycled from the backing of a  watercolour pad.I adhered the watering can into the middle of the circle, and covered the remaining chipboard in Indigoblu texture paste.


I pushed some wired  bees and dandelions into the texture  paste. When dry I  painted the texture paste with Olive Waistcoat paint.


I hope I have  inspired you to upcycle your treasures using the wonderful Indigoblu stamps. You can see lots more inspiring Ideas created by the fabulous Indigoblu Design Team on the blog.

Rainbow Bridge

 

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours

Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather

The old and frail are young again
Those who are maimed are made whole again

They play all day with each other
There is only one thing missing

They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up !

The nose twitches !
The ears are up !
The eyes are staring !
And this one suddenly runs from the group !

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her into your arms and embrace
your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, 

never again to be separated




 


I sprayed my Watercolour paper with water and added washes of rainbow colours, letting them bleed into one another to make lovely mixtures. 


The dog from the Clumber Park Stamp set was going to be waiting on the bridge, so I stamped him with black ink and fussy cut him


 


Vellum is a transparent, delicate paper which is perfect for Angel wings.I  stamped  the butterfly from the Victorian garden set onto it, and cut out two wings from the butterfly.I coated the wings with clear glitter. 


 I adhered the wings to the back of the doggie and used 3D sticky pads to adhere him to the picture


The Mindfullness Stamp set has a perfect "Angels are watching over you" sentiment included which I stamped under the dog. 


Please visit the Indigoblu blog to see what my talented team mates have made.

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 !

Happy Birthday A.A.Milne

Today A.A.Milne would have been 135 years old! He of course created our Silly old Britsh Bear Winnie the Pooh. I have created this 3D scene in his honour.

Pooh was 90 years old last year but I had just had an op so I couldn't create anything then, so this is a double celebration!

I used a Tando Create Art Room as the base and Tim Holtz Treeline and Pine Tree Dies to fill Ashdown Forest with lovely trees. I covered the trees and the outside of the Art Room in Indigoblu Coarse Texture paste and painted them in various shades of green.

I watercoloured my stamped images of Christopher Robin and Pooh, Piglet and Hunny Pots. I stamped an extra balloon and used some wire to dangle Piglet underneath it, he is having a grand old time! Some glossy accents added to the hunny pots gave them a goooey glossy look.

Many Happy Returns of A.A.Milne's Birthday, thank you for visiting us on this Special Day in Ashdown Forest!

In A.A. Milne's and Pooh's honour I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
