Winnie the Pooh and the Queen !


I Love, Love, Love, Classic Pooh by A.A.Milne and E H Shepard. Today a story has been released where Pooh meets the Queen. He  reads her a special hum, which he wrote. It is just wonderful!
Of course on 14 th October this year Pooh himself will be 90 years old.

Here are some of the many Pooh Creations I have made over the years.

Clumber Park

 

I was surprised and delighted to have won the Indigo Blu Challenge. I was invited to be a guest designer for this months theme which is "May All Your Dreams Come True"

I used the lovely Clumber Park set for this scene, which I choose for my winning prize!

In my dreams I am healthy and able bodied and my beloved dog Tammy would still be with me. We would be walking together through this beautiful park. That really would be all my dreams come true!

 

I used a lid from a round box for the base. I stamped the lovely dog, ducks and the reeds, and carefully cut them out.

I added some brown fun flock to the top of the reeds, to give them a more realistic look.

 

I die cut a tree and covered it in gesso and painted it with water colours. I also coated the box lid with gesso and painted it. I made a little lake on the top of the box, and filled it with glossy accents to give it a watery glossy look.

 

I glued the flying ducks onto some thin wire and poked the wire into the top of the lid, so they could fly happily over the lake.

A view from above.

Party in the Forest

Yipeee it's party time in the forest and crowns are the order of the day. And of course no party is complete without balloons !

I used a circular box lid for the base which I covered in old book pages. I also cut thin strips from the book to make the tree.

The Crowned Bunnies stamp by Crafty Individuals is just adorable, I coloured them with water colour paints.Some white flowersoft gave them a nice little bunny tail.

I used Magic plastic to make the balloons, that was an experience!

Thank you for joining the party in the forest today.

Amazing Nail Art


My goodness can you believe this! Beautiful detailed scenes painted onto nails! With my eyesight problems I don't think I could even see that little brush ! My favourite is the snow scene.

Magic is Something You Make

 

For the canvas I used a chipboard backing from a paper pad and coated it with gesso.

I glued layers of tissue paper on the top part of the canvas. When dry I used watercolours on top of the tissue and then stamped the sentiment. The remaining canvas was coloured with dye inks and splattered with watercolours.

I made the flowers with strips of fabric which I rolled around and around into a circle. Some twisted green net became its leaves.

I finished by adding a little sparkle and some cross stitches in a silver thread.

Thank you for visiting.
