George picking flowers


Created by Jannet Blay http://gillslap.blogspot.co.uk/
It was a lovely sunny spring morning, so George picked up his basket, and skipped into the garden. He wanted to pick his Mum some flowers, because of course he had the best Mum in all the world.After he had picked a few George felt sleepy and gently snuggled down on the soft grass for a nap.....

I started making George's garden with a biscuit box and I covered the sides in lovely Indigo Blu papers. Green felt made the grass , I just scratched it up a bit to make it more fluffy.


Well no garden is complete without flowers, so I die cut a few. I then used water colours to add some colour to them and added a pearl dot in the middle.

I made the stems and leaves with some green wire.


Now George needed a basket to carry the flowers in, so I plaited some paper together to make a basket.

I put some lovely yellow ribbon with tiny pom poms on around the top of the sides.



George was getting impatient so I quickly coloured him with some watercolours and placed him on top of the grass. I then added lots of the flowers around him, so he was very happy and content.

This is going to be a gift box so I covered the bottom with some more Indigo Blu papers and cut a little door into the bottom. I think some chocolates or a gift card etc would fit inside ok.

I used an array of different medias to create this, I hope you like it.

Thank you for visiting George today, he loved seeing you.
