Imagitation can take you anywhere !



I am always finding pressed flowers in between book pages, so after  experimenting with stamping on pressed rose petals  ( please see this postI thought I would try using punches with them. I began by gluing my pressed rose petals onto card, I used a Pritt glue stick. I then  used the beautiful  Fiskars punch to create lots of  rose petal butterflies. 

I created a sky background with watercolours, and stamped the lovely little Phyllis Harris Stamp by 
Unity onto card.After giving her some colour I carefully cut around her, and adhered her to the background. I wanted the butterflies to float her up and away to a magical land. So I arranged the butterflies above her and drew a line from the butterflies to her hands. I stamped the brilliant quote next to her,  I love that sentiment - imagination really can take you anywhere...

Thank you for stopping by, I am off to Alexandra Palace tomorrow for the big craft show.

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!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

I found a Christmas gift for a friend in the Amazon Black Friday Sale which was a very good buy. I can't say what it was incase he reads my blog!

I have sensitive skin so I always use Clinique products, they have 10% off all their products this weekend.

I think Hobbycraft stores have a Black Friday sale, but I have not been so I don't know exactly what they are offering in store.

Hope you all find some good crafting bargains in the sales!

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.
