Hi you all! Today started out warm and sunny, but as I was on my way home this afternoon, it started to rain in torrents. I don't really mind, but I had no umbrella in my car - all 5 in my flat - no jacket, and was wearing sandals....So of course, I did not find a parking place nearby and was soaked by the time I got to the door! But at least it washed all the yellow pollen off my car, so that's something!
At Out of a Hat Creations the ladies want to see a picture frame, and at Pan Pastel Challenge Blog the theme this week is Fairyland. At Simon Says Stamp and Show they want to know what inspires us. This is my try at all three challenges.
I started off with a simple white-wood frame from IKEA. I grabbed one of my Bit-boxes, and shook out all the small bits that were in it. That gave me the angel/fairy - which is a soap! - the flowers, the button, the rosette, the bird and cage, some shells and some leaves. This was my inspiration! I like to use the things I have, and to put them together to make something new and different. It doesn't always have to be new designer stuff. I glued them onto my frame with the hot glue-gun (only one small blister this time), leaving space for the fairy and the unicorn. I sprayed it all silver, and did my stamping while it was drying. Nothing is made of metal, it just looks like it! The unicorn - LaBlanche - has been stamped onto speciality stamping paper with archival black and fussy cut. The Unicorn did, of course, have a rear end, which I have saved in case I ever need it! The fairy, wings and hat are stamps from Scrollswork. They have been stamped onto the same paper using clear embossing ink and silver embossed. I glued the fairy so that she is standing on the pile of leaves with the big shell behind her. I added the rose and sequin flowers, and some silver stickles, so that she glitters like a fairy should! The photo is one of my mother with my sister Ruth taken about 1940. I think my sister looks like the little fairy!
