Meet Me Under The Stars

I am starting the fourth week with this rotten virus,it seems to be doing the rounds and just wont go away! Today I was able to play with my new Lavinia Stamps which I had for Christmas, aren't they lovely!

I used watercolours to create the background, and I flicked white acrylic paint with some irresdescent medium mixed into it for the stars.

I stamped and fussy cut the foxes and used 3D sticky pads to adhere them to the background.

Thank you so very much for visiting me today, I hope you have escaped this virus!

What a Surprise!

I discovered today that my little Christmas box (3 inch square) won the Readers Challenge in Papercraft Inspirations! I gave this box to my Mother for Christmas and filled it with lip balms and little chocs.

I made the box some time ago with some beautiful Forest Magic stamps which came with the magazine. I wrote a few words about it here.

My talented friend Sandra's gorgeous card was published too!

Thank you so much for visiting. May you have many happy days in 2017!

A Breath of New Year Air

I made a much smaller bauble than this one for The Craft Stamper Christmas Decoration Art Call, and I was so lucky to have it selected for publication. So I thought why not make a larger and different one to see in 2017! I made this especially for Indigoblu, and you can see lots of other wonderful projects by the Indigoblu International Design Team here.

I found a box of inexpensive baubles in Hobbycraft which separated in half. Which are just perfect for this project.

I began by stamping the dog from the Indigoblu Clumber Park Stamp set, and fussy cut him. Being sure to leave tabs under his feet as these will be pushed into the snow later.

I die cut 2017 from Shrink Plastic and shrunk it with a heat gun, but this can also be done in an oven.

I mixed texture paste and Unicorn sparkles together and spooned it into each side of the bauble. I had gathered some thyme from the garden and used this as winter trees,

I stood the dog into the back half of the bauble a long with some thyme.

I hung the 2017 onto the trees branches, and added a dab of glue to help keep them in place.

I stood the New Years tree into the snow in the front half of the bauble. When both sides were dry I pushed them together, and hung it with a white ribbon.

Thank you so much for visiting me today : )

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! : )

The Wishing Tree

On the Morning of Christmas Eve some very special deers gather around the Wishing Tree. This tree is the tallest one in the forest, and it is covered in twinkling stars. The deers know how very lucky they are, as they have magical abilities which bring joy to so many all over the world. So on this special morning they gather around their tree to give heartfelt thanks, and they each close their eyes tightly and make a special wish.......

You can find all the details about how I created this Wishing Tree on the Indigoblu Blog.

Bonfire Night Treat Tray


On Bonfire Night you always need a hot mug of tea to keep you warm. Of course you need an all important toffee apple too!
 


I painted a papier mache tray with Grandmas Teacup paint, and added some sparkling stars using the stars stencil and Snow White Metallic paint.
 

I die cut a mug template and decorated it with stamps from the Indigoblu Steampunkesque Stamp set. I added some colour to the lady with Gelatos . To match the tray I added some stars as before, but using blue instead of white.i assembled the mug and adhered it onto the tray and added an all important Toffee Apple.

My Grandfather Frederick Simmonds



This canvas is dedicated to my Grandfather Frederick Simmonds.He joined the Oxford and Bucks Army to fight in the First World War aged just 14 years old. In this photo he is with a Belgium family who took him under their wing when he was stationed there.

He was 18 years old when the war ended, his brother John died at The Somme on the 1st of July 1916.

 

 

Papercrafter Magazine very kindly wrote a small article about my Grandfather in their Remembrance Day Pages. Thank you so much.

Autumnal Loom


 

I added some Indigoblu Luscious pigment powders into a water filled spray bottle and shook it gently to mix.The pigment powder leaves a lovely sparkly sheen on the paper

 

I sprayed the watercolour paper and also added some watercolours in Autumnal shades. I stamped the sentiment from IndigoBlu's Live,Laugh,Love Stamp Set, using a metallic inkpad in Mineral.

I decided to create a Nature loom and weave it with beautiful leaves, berries etc from the forest, along with my chosen sentiment.I used twigs for the frame and created the loom with string.

 

 
 
 

I hope that you will enjoy creating something for this months challenge.
