Dandelion Wishes


I am delighted and honoured to have been invited as a guest designer at A Vintage Journey.This month Amanda has chosen Watercolour as her theme.Which is of course my favourite colouring medium, it is very versatile and easy to use.Why not give it a try and join their challenge this month.

I created a background with my watercolours and stamped this gorgeous girl blowing a dandelion stamp by Crafty Individuals. I always love to use elements from nature with my projects, so I found some pressed gypsophlia to use for the blowing away dandelion seeds. I am always finding forgotten pressed flowers in between the pages of thick books, where I have pressed them many months or probably even years before!



I wrapped some threads around the base of the card and tucked some more gypsophlia between them.

I finished the card by edging it with black ink, and adhering the picture onto a scalloped edged card.

May all your wishes come true xxx

I would like to share this card with the following challenges.

Happy 2017 from Aloysius and me!

This month the Indigoblu Design Team have been asked to use their favourite Indigoblu stamp, which is of course a difficult choice! As I am a teddy bear fan I just had to pick the famous Aloysius teddy from Brideshead Revisited.I was happy for an excuse to use my new Christmas watercolours to paint the background.More details about how I made this card can be found on the Indigoblu blog.

Aloysius is the most gorgeous bear and there are so many different cards, and gifts you could make with him!He has been in my stamp collection for some time I must bring him out to play more often : )

There is a fun challenge happening at Indigoblu at the moment with the theme of Snow Snow Snow. There are wonderful stamps to be won, so there is nothing to lose.... if you have Aloysius you could sit him in a fluffy pile of icy snow he would love that!

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

I would like to enter Aloysius into the following challenges

Happy 2017

Healthy and Happy 2017 !

My year with The Mixed Media Mojo Design Team has concluded, and this is my final project.I used the White Rabbit from Alice for my first project, so I thought I would use him again for my final project.




I carefully removed a page from my old Alice in Wonderland book.In the bottom left hand corner I used super thick Slap it on through the Indigoblu Rose Stencil.


I stamped Alice and the White Rabbit onto card and bought them to life with watercolours, and fussy cut them.


I randomly stamped some clocks and also added 2016 and 2017. On the top of the page I stamped some cascading raindrops.


I added some glossy accents over the top of the raindrops.

 

When dry I coloured the Rose blue, and adhered Alice and the White Rabbit onto the book page.


Play along with Mixed Media Mojo Challenge this month the theme is New and the twist is Clocks. There is a whole new Design Team so be sure to pay them a visit.


Thank you for visiting, may you enjoy every day of the new year.

Altered Summertime Scrapbook Journal

Last year I found a guest book in the John Lewis sale. It had bright and cheerful beach huts on it, so of course I couldn't resist!

I decided to alter the guest book into a summer scrapbook journal.

I started by adding some texture paste to give the appearance of sand, and then I used watercolours over the top.

The girl is a Phyliss Harris stamp which I also coloured with water colours. I used some pink thread to create the flowing ribbons on her hat.

I glued some real shells onto the bottom of the cover, and finished by laying a ribbon down the side .

The inside pages all had titles on them, but these were easily covered with papers.

I hope I have inspired you to have some fun, and create something for this months challenge at Mixed Media Mojo which is "Summertime" and the Twist is Shells which you can use if you wish.

The Voice of The Sea Speaks to the Soul Mini Scrapbook

This months Challenge theme at Mixed Media Mojo is Summertime with a Twist of Shells. you do not have to use the twist if you don't want to, it's all about having fun!

I made this fairly simple 6 x 6 mini book for the theme. I will be adding a few notes and pictures about how I created it later this month.

I hope you will join in the fun this month.
