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.

Drifting Into Autumn


It seems my hopes for an Indian summer are well and truly over, as we find ourselves drifting into Autumn.October is full of crisp golden leaves fluttering from the trees, so I decided to try and recreate that scene for my  Indigoblu project this month. I recycled some items, and foraged Mother Nature for other Autumn treasures.

A step by step tutorial is on the Indigoblu blog.

Thank you so much for visiting, and happy Autumn !

There Is Always Something New To Discover



 


Well the summer has finally arrived !  I am celebrating by making a mini book full of flowers, and all things nature . Nature has always been a huge inspiration in my art. This is one of the tags in my mini book and I have also been experimenting with recycling gift cards, so please stop by the Indigoblu blog to see more.


I would like  to thank all of my crafting friends for asking about me after the latest terrorist attacks in London. I am ok, I live about 17 mikes from the recent attacks.

I took this photo of London Bridge at around this  time last year.

Christopher Robin

 

 Christopher Robin, Pooh, and Piglet are enjoying the Spring sunshine in Ashdown Forest. I removed  a page from  my "The World Of Christopher Robin" book, and adhered it to a small canvas. The branches wer ecreated with texture paste and detailed with paint. 
After stamping  this lovely Pooh swing stamp I coloured and  fussy cut them. I hung the Happy group from the branches festooned with die cut blossoms.

Thank you for visiting us in Ashdown Forest today.

I created this page for the challenges below

Let It Snow

The main image is by Crafty Individuals, I chose this stamp after I was luckily chosen as winner in one of their challenges.

I stamped and water coloured the images. I fussy cut them out and detached the umbrella from the children. I made a snowy background with Watercolours and adhered the children to the texture paste and glitter snow. I used foam pads to hold the umbrella in place to gave it some depth. The Let it Snow stamp is from IndigoBlu's stamp set Sparkle and Glisten

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

An Apple Or Two A Day For Bernie

Do you have a folder of backgrounds which you have created but haven't used? I know I do so I pulled a colourful one of them out to use as my base for this picture.

I firmly taped my elephant stencil down with some masking tape. I swept some texture paste over the stencil with a palette knife, I wanted to give the elephant a cracked rough elephant type skin so I used a sponge (an inexpensive make up sponge) and pressed it into the paste and then quickly lifted it up. I have never used crackle paint, but you could probably create the same appearance with that.

When the paste was completely dry. I put the stencil back over the paste and carefully stuck it down. I used Rangers Cool Graphite dye ink to colour the elephant. I really should give him a name.... I think I will call him Bernie. I dabbed a sponge into the ink and dabbed it all over until Bernie was a glorious grey colour.

Now Bernie is often hungry so I quickly painted him a few apples, and coated them in glossy accents. When nice and dry I cut them all out.

I stamped a bird on a little piece of card and cut it out and sat him on Bernie's back. I added few green stamped branches and leaves, and glued the apples amongst them.Now Bernie is ready to have a feast!
