Magical Fairy Book

 
Inside the magical Fairy world!

 
I used a Tando Creative Mini Printer Tray for my Magical Fairy book. As I was going to use Watercolours,I put a coating of gesso onto the pieces first.

 
I stamped Lavinia Stamps onto shrink plastic and shrunk them down, so they would be just the right size to sit happily in the printer tray.

 
The front cover, the fairies are happily sitting in the Enchanted Forest.They are wondering where all the other fairies are.....

 
The inside front cover.

 
Here are the fairies!

 
And the deers, and horses, and don't forget the hare..

 
Or the unicorn,

 


 
I added glass beads on the sides of the book and painted over them with Indigoblu  Iced Gem Paint


Thank you Fairy much for visiting me today xx

Thank You Kindly


I used one of Phyllis Harris's gorgeous stamps for this card. I paper pieced the little girls dress and also mounted it onto the same patterned paper. I love watercolours so of course I used them to create the background and also to colour the lovely characters.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

A Peep Into A Magical Land

 
Tread quietly... today we are peeping into a magical land... can you see the lovely horse and foal.Did you know that at midnight every night the fully grown horses start to magically grow a beautiful horn and turn into magnificent unicorns for the night. In this picture the mother is whispering to her child telling her all about the enchantment  she will enjoy when she is older !

If you would like to make an exploding  canvas you can find many and varied  videos on you tube to give you the basics. I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to make this magical land.I watercoloured the images and canvas, and I used pearl stickles on the enchanted toadstool, and a signo white pen on the pink flowers.I also slotted  in some skeleton leaves to add more layers and depth.
 

Thank you so much for visitng today and taking a peep into this magical world!

Playing Not Fighting

 

This is my dream of a world where everyone is kind and considerate, law abiding, and there is no illness, disease or disability.
Dream on....

 

A closer look, the Hares are playing not fighting! Sometimes you have to fight back though...
I watercoloured the background,and stamp embossed some ivy in enchanted gold. I bought the Hares to life with watercolours, and used more watercolours to make the flowers bloom and the little butterfly fly!

 

This is the card folded down, I just need to buy an envelope to fit it now!

Little House On The Prairie

 

Earlier this year I was very lucky and won the challenge at Fashionable Stamping.My wonderful prize was a voucher for Flonzcraft, so of course I immediately browsed their stamps. They have some very lovely and unique stamps. As soon as I saw this girl stamp I immediately thought of Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie! It is one of mine and my Mother's favourite tv shows, so I  just  had to choose her, and then of course I needed the wagon to go with her too!

 

I decided to make a bendi card, it was fairly easy to make, if you have never made one you should give it a try! On the bottom level I added some layers of raffia.on the higher level I added some texture paste which I later painted. I watercoloured a background. After stamping the images with black Archival ink, I coloured them with watercolours. I fussy cut the lovely images and adhered them to the card. I stamped some leaves and cut them out, and added them to the scene.

I think it looks a little like a scene from Little House, it is going to be my Mothers Easter card.

Thank you for visiting today.

Pride and Prejudice

 

This months theme at Indigoblu is All You Need Is Love.

One of English Literatures most famous romantic writers was Jane Austen. Amongst many other classic novels she of course wrote "Pride and Prejudice".I thought that it would be fitting to pay a her a special tribute, she did give us Mr Darcy after all!

You can read all the details about how I made this tribute on the Indigoblu Blog

Thank you so much for visiting.

Magical Winter Unicorn Forest


I used a Lavinia Stamps Unicorn, and he told me that he wanted to be in a Magical Winter Forest! I decided to use a mixture of watercolours, glass beads, and gems to make a mystical home for him.

A close up pic of the frosty icicles, I love glass beads! : )

Hope and Courage

I used the beautiiful Boadicia stamp set from IndigoBlu, and coloured her with watercolours. I have made something quite simple with no extras added, but I think it says so much.

Thank you so much for looking.
