Snow White



Hello, Snow White is visiting the Indigoblu Blogtoday, I hope you will pay her a visit. She would love to see you!

It now seems that the splint for my arm was not the right treatment! The ultrasound has found three different and what the dr called very complicated problems. I need to see a specialist, and of course the waiting lists are several months long! I am managing to craft just a little at a time, thank goodness I can, as otherwise I would go bonkers!

Some good news a magazine contacted me and they think my “Actually I Can” canvas has a very positive message and they want to feature it in their magazine next month. So glad they liked it,  not everyone did!
I would like to enter Snow White into the following challenges.

Meeting Under The Mistletoe



If you remember my story from 12th December about the hare waiting under the mistletoe, this is the next installment.


For the next 11 days he continued to wash and fluff himself, and travelled to the three pines, to stand hopefully under the mistletoe.. but nobody ever came.


On the 12th day which also happened to be Christmas Eve, he decided this would be his very last visit. He hopped along with hope forever in his heart. As soon as he turned the corner into the three pines he saw the most beautiful and dazzling lady hare waiting patiently under the mistletoe.

She was waiting just for him....

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.

Snowman Scenic Square



I have been busy creating a half dozen of these adorable scenic boxes. Before assembling the mdf pieces 
I painted them and then added a coat of crackle.Sitting happily inside this one you can find a snowman or snowlady, a snowflake, both painted and decorated. Some dried elements, flowers pine cone etc, and some sumptuous  pink berries.
I also used mini polystyrene balls, and oh my goodness they went absolutely everywhere! I think I will still be finding them at Easter!




Thank you for stopping by, I would like to enter my little scene into the Mini Marvel challenge at A Vintage Journey

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 : )

Christmas Gift Box

 

I have a rather large pile of boxes because they maybe useful one day! I have actually used one of those boxes to make a little 3 inch square gift box.

I painted the box pink, and stamped tiny snowflakes on the sides of the lid. The scene on the top was created with watercolours and glitter, and a lovely set of Forest Magic Stamps.

 

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon!

Alice In Winterland

In the winter, Wonderland becomes Winterland, and Alice loves to walk in the snowy forest.

I painted the top of my 20cm (8inch) canvas with Iced Gem paint, and randomly painted on Snow White metallic paint on the bottom. I used the star stencil and Slap it On to add some raised stars to the top of the canvas and also painted those pink.

 

I used Archival Olive Ink pad to stamp the trees from the Winterland wood stamp set. I stamped the two distance trees without reinking the stamp, so it gave a more faded and distant look. I used white paint to add snow to the trees which was followed by flitterglu and white glitter.

 

I stamped and coloured Alice from the Indigoblu Alice stamp set, and stamped the bunnies in black Archival from the Winterland set. I fussy cut them all out and adhered them to the canvas.

I spread glass bead gel medium to the bottom of the canvas to give some glistening texture to the snow. When it was dry, I lightly added white paint to some areas.

 

I Die cut some snowflakes and stars in various sizes and covered them in Flitterglu and white glitter. I adhered them to the top of the canvas using sticky foam pads.

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