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.

Pooh is 90 years old Commemorative Frame


Our Silly Old British and Much Loved Bear Winnie the Pooh, became the grand age of 90 on 14th October 2016. So I made this Enchanted Place to commemorate the occasion.

My Blog is called The Enchanted Place after the Enchanted Place in the Pooh stories by A.A.Milne.I Love, Love, Love Classic Pooh by E.H.Shepard and A.A.Milne.

I made this before I had the op on my finger, the good news is I am slowly getting movement back.I hope to be back crafting again soon!

I cut the template above in card and covered it in Modelling Paste, dabbing it with the spatula to raise it up a little. When dry I used Hot Coca and Peppermint Tea paints to cover it.

I found the silhouette of Classic Pooh and Christopher Robin online and printed it out. I then traced the outline and transferred it onto black card and cut it out.I adhered their feet to the top of the hill.

The frame was an inexpensive wooden frame, which I covered in Flitterglu and Chocolate Box Megaflakes.

I painted some card with Grandmas Teacup, Wimberry and Iced Gem paints. I cut it to fit the inside of the frame. I used black Archival ink to stamp the Pooh sentiment from the Caitlin Stamp set in the top right hand corner of the card.

I found some black number stickers in my bulging old sticker box, and I covered them with Megaflakes.

I picked some twigs and herbs from the garden and coated them in Slap it On. When dry I adhered them to the hill and the front of the frame.

Many Happy Returns Pooh!

Thank you for visiting, I hope to see you again soon
