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.

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.

Hanging Spring Egg

As Spring is finally here, we start to think about decorating our homes with flowers, and Easter decorations.

I covered the Papier Mache egg with a coating of Gesso. When dry I painted the outside of the egg in Grandmas Teacup.

The inside needs some colour too, so I added some Grandmas Teacup to the top and Peppermint tea paint on the bottom.


I flicked some white paint on the outside of the egg, to add some speckling


I stamped the images with an Archival Black ink pad, and then cut them out.

Some real twigs from the forest became a spring tree. I added some pink Flowersoft to the branches to look like lovely cherry blossom. I put a good covering of texture paste inside the base of the egg.


I fixed the tree, deers, and rabbits into the texture paste.


When the paste was dry, I coated it with some pva glue, and sprinkled some green Flowersoft inside for grass.
