Loveing Nature

Welcome to this weeks blog hop, I hope your ready for
some crafting, because this week our theme is nature ,
and we all know that nature has so many wonderful and
beautiful sites to see . Also I am sorry that my photos are not
in the correct order, I tried twice to fix this ( grumbles dam blog)
Any how, you should have started at Imagine If , and come
to my blog from Ngaeres blog

I run the tree through the cuttle bug for a little texture,
the used primas glod spray, the we house is cut from a strip
of little houses and coloured brown using chalk ink.
I fussy cut the little birds from primas new paper line
"for ever green collection" these papers have lots of things
that can be cut out out which I love.

The reed on the right is such a fun piece to work with, and
is super for filling a space, I used Tim Holtz distress ink
"forest green" then I used a liquid glue on the ends and
covered the glue with tiny glass beads to imitate seeds .

In this photo I am playing around with different peace's  to
see how it looks and coloring some of the bits I will use.

I am LOVEING the mushrooms ,so I made them into a house
for the little mouse you see there on the right.

The 2 trees on the right hand side I painted black and used as
part of the back ground

The unicorn I painted white ,then covered with super fine glitter
lots more fussing cutting along the front edge

Now these 2 photos are the same but I forgot to add the letter box
on the side ,see below, but the top photo was better.
The mushrooms I used acrylic paint, vintage red and vintage white
I used a dab of liquid glue and clear glass beads to make the
dots, the other mushrooms are fussy cut from the Prima
"forever green collection"


And here is my finished mini wonderland , full of butterflies
firns mushrooms and so much more. Thanks for taking the
time to check out our latest chipboard at Imagine If  .
Your next stop on the blog hop is Lilians lovely blog
Happy Hopping
