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.

Words to Craft By "If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself, and then make a change" If everyone could change and be more like Pooh the world would be a better place!

Today Pooh is 90 years old!

Happy 90th Birthday Pooh!

Today it is 90 wonderful years since A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh book was first published. Our silly old British bear was bought to life by the extraordinarily talented E.H.Shepard. The stories have bought fun and happiness to many generations all over the world. I could not imagine my life without Pooh and friends in it!

 


"Pooh when I'm you know - when I'm not doing nothing, will you come up here sometimes ?"

"Just me?"

"Yes Pooh"

"Will you be here too?"

"Yes Pooh, I will be really. I promise I will be Pooh."

"That's good" said Pooh

"Pooh promise you won't forget about me ever. Not even when I'm a hundred"

"How old shall I be then?"

"Ninety nine"

"I promise"he said

Still with his eyes on the world Christopher Robin put out a hand and felt for Pooh's paw.

"Pooh" he said earnestly "if....if I'm not quite..." he stopped and tried again."Pooh whatever happens, you will understand won't you?"

"Understand what?"

"Oh nothing" he laughed and jumped to his feet "Come on !"

"Where?" said Pooh

"Anywhere" said Christopher Robin

So they went off together. But wherever they go and whatever happens to them on the way, in that Enchanted Place on the top of the Forest a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.
