Snowdrop time…


I love snowdrops – Mum and I always used to go and see them at Chirk castle. So I’ve made a journal page using the snowdrop Dinky Stencil and some Texture paste. The background was already coloured with leftover paint, so it was just a case of building up the scene. Melina’s wintry tree fit right in.

Hobbymaker shows


I hope you managed to catch the shows with Sam yesterday, if not then they are on catchup and are well worth watching. I loved seeing everybody’s different ideas for the Inside Stories from That's crafty!.
I thought today I’d post detailed pics of the Orangery I made.
With this version I stencilled the outside and then painted and stamped over the top. The stamps are some of Lynnes. Then I assembled all the pieces inside before painting them. I was also a lot less gung ho and handled pieces carefully – some are delicate simply because they’re tiny. I absolutely love the little step ladder as we've got those in our garden.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing this in close up - any questions, just ask.
