Deer Globe




Hello how are your Christmas makes going - not long until the big day now.I have been playing with Luscious powders, Indigoblu Winterland Wood Stamp Set and a round spice jar !




 I used a glue called “special glue”  it is very thin, and is used for Glass & Plastic Baubles

I poured a small amount into the  spice jar, and rolled it around the back and sides of the jar.








I selected my Luscious colours and placed a small amount on a thin strip of card and shook it into the jar. 





I used  the smallest deer from the Winterland Wood Set and stamped him onto card and fussy cut him.


I then spooned some fine texture paste into the cork lid and stood the deer, and some dried flowers into it, and followed with a sprinkling of Unicorn Sparkles.


I addied a finishing touch by plaiting some Raffia and then tied it around the cork lid.Then with great care I pushed the deer into the jar and pushed the cork lid shut.


Thank you for visiting me today, please take a look at the Indigoblu blog to see what other creations the talented team have come up with.

Under The Mistletoe



The spritely young hare had heard that there was some mistletoe growing on the edge of the forest just by the three pines. So he jumped into the lake and washed himself all over including behind his long ears. He used a teasel to brush and fluff his fur, and then ran to the three pines and stood waiting hopefully under the mistletoe.....


All of the stamps I used to create this magical scene are by Lavinia Stamps.

Stay Strong Against the Storms Delicate One




Well the weather has certainly turned wintery, and Christmas is fast approaching! How are all of your festive plans going?

Christmas is not always the happiest of times, and with this in mind I made this bauble. It’s base is made of thin wood, and it was an inexpensive find in The Range store.I painted it with  a light blue acrylic paint, and then stamped my beautiful snowdrop with Archival black ink.The Stamp is an old wooden one, I am guessing it is about 15 years old. I have several boxes of those old wooden stamps, I really must use them more often.I coloured the snowdrops with acrylic  paint and an overcoat of glitter! I added the stay strong Stamp from the  Dina Wakley Media - Cling  Handwritten Quotes set and heat embossed it in white. I added a flittering of white paint for falling snow.

For the top of the bauble I used Indigoblu flitterglu and mega flakes.

The delicate snowdrop is standing strong against the snowy storms and holding its beautiful head high.

Thank you for visiting, 
I hope you keep warm, safe, and well this winter xx

Getting the tree tag


Just a simple tag today, which I have made for my little December Daily Album.I left a white Snowy space at the bottom of the tag to add a date stamp on the day we select and bring our tree home.I used  Watercolours to create the background and also to colour the Clarity Stamp car. I watered down some white acrylic paint for my snow.


Thank you so much for visiting.

Snowman Scenic Square



I have been busy creating a half dozen of these adorable scenic boxes. Before assembling the mdf pieces 
I painted them and then added a coat of crackle.Sitting happily inside this one you can find a snowman or snowlady, a snowflake, both painted and decorated. Some dried elements, flowers pine cone etc, and some sumptuous  pink berries.
I also used mini polystyrene balls, and oh my goodness they went absolutely everywhere! I think I will still be finding them at Easter!




Thank you for stopping by, I would like to enter my little scene into the Mini Marvel challenge at A Vintage Journey

A Winters Meadow


Hello , I am in full Christmas making mode! I decided to make keepsake plaques for my family this year, and this one is for my sister.She takes several holidays in the Lake District each year.When I saw this charming Hobby Art stamp at the Alexandra Palace in September I thought it would make a perfect Christmas card for her.

I watercoloured the image and flicked my brush with white paint to create the snow.I love to use elements from nature so I chose a gorgeous piece of birch bark to mount it on and then added a pine cone, curly moss and a gorgeous pink berry.

How are your Christmas /Winter crafts going?

Thank you so much for visiting me today.

Snowy Feathers


I was thrilled when I had the winning bid on eBay for this darling Indigoblu Robin. I knew my parents would love him so I created this plaque especially for them. For once I was actually pleased on how it turned out, so I decided to use the same idea to make a card. You can read the details about  how I made the card on the Indigoblu blog.

I hope all you Christmas craft creations are going well, thank you so much  for visiting.

A Snowy Stroll To Church

So I have started my Christmas crafts for this year, which of course means glitter absolutely everywhere!How are your Christmas /Winter crafts coming along?

Alice In Winterland

In the winter, Wonderland becomes Winterland, and Alice loves to walk in the snowy forest.

I painted the top of my 20cm (8inch) canvas with Iced Gem paint, and randomly painted on Snow White metallic paint on the bottom. I used the star stencil and Slap it On to add some raised stars to the top of the canvas and also painted those pink.

 

I used Archival Olive Ink pad to stamp the trees from the Winterland wood stamp set. I stamped the two distance trees without reinking the stamp, so it gave a more faded and distant look. I used white paint to add snow to the trees which was followed by flitterglu and white glitter.

 

I stamped and coloured Alice from the Indigoblu Alice stamp set, and stamped the bunnies in black Archival from the Winterland set. I fussy cut them all out and adhered them to the canvas.

I spread glass bead gel medium to the bottom of the canvas to give some glistening texture to the snow. When it was dry, I lightly added white paint to some areas.

 

I Die cut some snowflakes and stars in various sizes and covered them in Flitterglu and white glitter. I adhered them to the top of the canvas using sticky foam pads.

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