A Red Squirrel Visitor

 

Hello, I hope all is well with you today, we are lucky to still be having some sunny days here. I have missed  going to the local forest this year, especially now as Autumn will soon be arriving. Sadly the second wave of Covid has already started so I continue to stay home, as I have since March. 

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Red Squirrel as they are sadly so rare in the UK now. My sister sees them in the Lake District, but we don’t have any in London. Nether the less I have one visiting me today by the magic of crafting. I had a lot of fun making him, and giving him a lovely bushy tail. I have jotted down a few details on how I made this Autumn Tag on the Calico Craft Parts Blog. I hope you can visit.

Please stay safe, this virus is sadly not going away any time soon. Look after yourselves.

Thank you for visiting, hugs xx

Moon Gazing Fox


It is good to be crafting again, after being very unwell. I am rather late with my second guest project for Calico Crafts, and I want to thank them so much for being very kind and understanding.  I love creating with their products which are fabulous, and there are so many to choose from! The possibilities are endless. There are more details about my Moon Gazing plaque over on Calico Crafts and Parts blog, so I hope you can pay them a visit. 

I also need to thank Happy Little Stampers for selecting my Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder watercolour card as a winner. For some odd reason, which I still have not worked out, I am unable to comment on some blogs and Happy Little Stampers is one of them. 

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you all is ok with you, I will visiting everyone’s blogs soon. xx

Nemesis


I am not sure I can call this an art journal page, as it is not actually in a journal as my journal is full! So  I will just call it a mixed media page! I have just purchased a Jane Davenport journal with watercolour pages, so I am looking forward to that arriving.



I started by browsing images of Nemesis, and then drew a very rough sketch.I used Watercolours to add some quick colour, and added megaflakes to the sword and scales of justice.



I stamped and heat embossed various branches on my background paper. I then used a wooden window stamp and stamped it twice. I should use my wooden stamps more often than I do. I have them all in a art bin and I don’t retrieve them very often.

I then Die Cut  lots of  leaves, and also coloured them with watercolours and added a dash of gold and copper megaflakes here and there to add some Autumn shine.i adhered them to the picture along with some natural elements from nature.

Thank you for visiting today, and many thanks, for all of the kind and supportive messages I have been receiving xx

I would like to share Nemesis with the following challenges.

Drifting Into Autumn


It seems my hopes for an Indian summer are well and truly over, as we find ourselves drifting into Autumn.October is full of crisp golden leaves fluttering from the trees, so I decided to try and recreate that scene for my  Indigoblu project this month. I recycled some items, and foraged Mother Nature for other Autumn treasures.

A step by step tutorial is on the Indigoblu blog.

Thank you so much for visiting, and happy Autumn !
