I hope the sun is shining with you today. I have upcycled this little watering can and filled it with beautiful blooms!, butterflies, and bees! 


As the watering can had a layer of existing paint, I used sand paper to throughly scratch the existing  paint. This provided a better surface for a layer of Steam Whistle paint to adhere to the metal.


When the paint was drying I stamped 20 flowers from the Victorian  Garden set. I used watercolour pens directly on the stamps so I could add green for the leaves and two coordinating colours for the flowers.I fussy cut the flowers leaving a little tab underneath them. I cut a piece of dry oasis to fit into the watering can, and pushed my flowers into it.


The butterflies and bee stamps are too large in relation to the watering can, so I stamped them onto shrink plastic.After shrinking I coloured them with Luscious which I had mixed with a little bit of water.It gives them a lovely gleam and sparkle!


I adhered the butterflies and bees onto some silver wire which I had curled around a pokey tool to give it more stability. The butterflies and bees happily flew into the flowers and I pushed the wire into the oasis.I also added some dried lavender amongst the flowers, to give a lovely aroma.


 I cut a circle out of some chipboard which I recycled from the backing of a  watercolour pad.I adhered the watering can into the middle of the circle, and covered the remaining chipboard in Indigoblu texture paste.

I pushed some wired  bees and dandelions into the texture  paste. When dry I  painted the texture paste with Olive Waistcoat paint.

I hope I have  inspired you to upcycle your treasures using the wonderful Indigoblu stamps. You can see lots more inspiring Ideas created by the fabulous Indigoblu Design Team on the blog.

Magical Fairy Book

Inside the magical Fairy world!

I used a Tando Creative Mini Printer Tray for my Magical Fairy book. As I was going to use Watercolours,I put a coating of gesso onto the pieces first.

I stamped Lavinia Stamps onto shrink plastic and shrunk them down, so they would be just the right size to sit happily in the printer tray.

The front cover, the fairies are happily sitting in the Enchanted Forest.They are wondering where all the other fairies are.....

The inside front cover.

Here are the fairies!

And the deers, and horses, and don't forget the hare..

Or the unicorn,


I added glass beads on the sides of the book and painted over them with Indigoblu  Iced Gem Paint

Thank you Fairy much for visiting me today xx

Fairy Bubbles

I was wheeling through the forest yesterday and I saw some little bubbles sparkling in the distance.I wonder where they were coming from.....

I added lots of glitter, and glossy accents on the bubbles, not sure if they show up very well in the photo.

I used Lavinia Stamps and Die cuts to create this card and lots of watercolours!

Thank you for visiting today, Fairy Hugs xx
