Easter gift

Remember the other day when my printer died  and I wanted to make something with a cute freebie from Hidden Vintage studios.   Well here it is 

The egg is a  vintage chocolate mould ... it was my grandads William Thomas Davis   and he would make chocolate Easter eggs for us every year.  They were beautiful , with icing flowers and little chicks  and our names piped in white icing .
I wanted to honor his creativity with a paper version.

Spring in a tea cup







The year's at the spring 
And day's at the Morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven -
All's right with the world!
~Robert Browning


Spring in a tea cup swap at blissfullART

The birds


 The Birds

He. Where thou dwellest, in what grove,

Tell me Fair One, tell me Love;

Where thou thy charming nest dost build,
O thou pride of every field!
She. Yonder stands a lonely tree,
There I live and mourn for thee;
Morning drinks my silent tear,
And evening winds my sorrow bear




William Blake

full of golden images of a bygone age

The grand tour

 For the rest of the year each month  I will be sharing the glue book postcards pages I am making for a swap at blissfull ART

      Edith of ( Downton Abbey is going on a grand tour of the world  and she going to sent home postcards from her travels ... one to let Mama and Papa  know she's well  and having a jolly good time  but also so she can rub in to Mary want a great time she having without her.


Edith first port of call is the romantic city of Paris . Edith has an appointment with The French designer Madeleine Vionnet , after all she will need a whole new wardrobe for her trip and she will make time to go the the outrageous Moulin rouge. But I don't think she should mention that on the postcard to Papa...

big steps



SOLD
For the first time ever I'm entering the world of selling some of my artwork . It started with a chance meeting at the Lakewood 400  http://lakewood400antiquesmarket.wordpress.com/ ...  I found a super, cute store The ribbon emporium http://ribbonemporium.blogspot.com/ that sold the most wonderful  hand dyed laces and ribbon  I  nearly brought out the whole shop. 




 The next month when I went in the the ribbon emporium to buy some more lace...Mary noticed  one of my soldered pieces around my neck  and there and then asked if she could buy it .....    That has never happen before and I was somewhat shocked  and surprised  but in a good way ... it was nice to know someone thought my art was pretty enough to want to buy. 



SOLD


So after I had walked around the rest of the show I went back and sold my necklace.   Mary then asked if I'd like to sell some of my pieces in the store 
SOLD














This weekend my soldered shadow box necklaces and faerie boxes will on sale exclusively at The ribbon emporium at the Lakewood 400 friday March 15th to  Sunday 17th.  If your in the area. Please pop in 

They have all manor of vintage bits and bobs in them. From old lace and buttons  to old pearls and stamps.  All top of with some good old glitter.  Each one is unique and one of kind.  


I'm a little scared about taking the plunge  but then I think what the heck ... if they don't sell I have all my christmas presents sorted for this year

Alice in wonderland



When it comes to anything Alice in Wonderland  and altering tins I'm going to be in.  So when  the Alice's tea party altered tin swap came up at blissfulART you know I had to have ago. 

 This is the one I made for my dear friend
 Becky Loyall.
 http://whymsicalmusings.blogspot.com  
I know that Becky loves all things Alice as much as I do  and for once the stars aligned and this went together so easily... 
  I wanted it to look Topsy turfy....  The tin on top of a cup cake and the cup cake in a cup.   

I painted the tin deep red on the outside and glittered the inside.
   The images are from moonlight journey Alice brag book  and  Fine crafted design. Alice's wings are from hidden vintage studios

The stories behind the images


Using the second of Itkupilli  Victorian inspired kits  I made this  titled  "A morning walk in the garden"  I thought of Elizabeth Bennett /Darcy  walking in the garden after  her wedding. She looks thoughtful maybe there's a surprise she needs to tell.... 
Credits: Itkupilli  rusty views, spring flowers , roses Victoria clip art 2

I know there's a story behind this one  but I not sure what... I tilted it  " Frolick in the factory"  but I not sure  Why they are in the factory? what's with the Ostrich?.... Maybe the point is that you make up the story.

Credits: itkupilli kits grunge Victorian,  Victorian clip art 2  and spring flowers  and  fabulous images from Tumble fish studios 

and this one was inspired  by the new Jack and the beanstalk movie ...  It was one of my favorite faerie tales as a child ... A magic land in the clouds with untold riches ... a brave hero... magic seeds. Also It reminds me a little of the ending credits to the Monty Python show. I think its the foot ...

framed!

 This is the frame I made for Melanie for the jeweled framed swap at MAMA .. I was a little nervous about this swap.. but once started placing the broken jewelry and charms on the frame it went very well. I found the frame at hobby lobby.  I think Maria would approve.  The image is one of my digital images made with images from itkupilli 
and this fabulous blinged out frame is from Melanie http://artfulinterludes.blogspot.com ... Isn't it wonderful ?  Thank you I love it .. I placed it on my bedside table and when the afternoon sun hit the table, the whole frame glittered
