Abstract Spring

These pieces are fragments of water, wind, sky, fresh growth, light, beautiful fresh Spring as it gently unfolds.
Linking to Art Journal Journey's theme "out and about."

Sunday morning, enjoying the Spring blue.

Early Spring

"Out and about" (the theme over at Art Jounal Journey) you can spot the first signs of Spring. In this piece I started with my beloved Autumn colours but I sprinkled in some green, for the new buds to come and the early signs of Spring that start appearing.

Outside my window after the rain, the sun popped out, everything was a sparkle!

Inside two little friends sat happily enjoying the sunlight by the flowers.

A close up of Roger, as Lulu has named him.

We even spotted a Spring fairy amongst the flowers!

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring and also linking to Art Journal Journey and the theme"out and about."

Spring Awaits

Just round the corner Spring awaits, I had that in mind as I journaled and played with fresh Spring colours.
Today is grey and Winter still clings on, but that's fine, the sun is stretching longer each day it pops out now.

I've been making these dolls, my Lulu loves them!

And a Winter's sea and sky! I find great beauty even in the grey! The light felt silvery and magical.

Love, Stitch and Colour

Colour, shapes, losing myself in this happy mess, these are the moments I treasure...

Lulu loved this soft fairy, bringing Winter dreams her way.

I had to decorate my green cushion too to go with the other one I had done a few weeks ago, now we have two bright cushions of flowers and this hand stitched heart below to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!

Finally here is Tilly a new rabbit friend I made for Lulu, she's looking a bit shy here but has been made welcome by all, Toby especially loves her!

 Love and colour,

Fairy Magic

Fairies are sprouting everywhere in our home lately, twinkling at us and bringing their delicate magic with them.

A delicate collage with a message from the fairy folk to relax, find balance and happiness!

They love to laugh and have a jolly time together!

This soft creature above watches over us day and night.

We even have a little baby fairy who sleeps warmly in her little leaf!

Winter Magic

Continuing Winter's story, 
she came bringing snow and cold with her soft icy whispers, everything sparkled white 
as she slowly passed in the night.

Somewhere out there the wolves wandered hungrily, howling, roaming the land,
the wind whistled through the bare branches,
twigs broke and fell silently.

And she tiptoed through it all,
peeping in to see all those wrapped up warm,
as she twirled and danced so gracefully in her cold blue splendour,
bringing Winter magic to everything she touched.

In the cold of night, 
sleep tight and deeply rest yourself this night.

A new fairy boy popped by to say hello this week, the girl fairies were over joyed to have him join our party!

I continue enjoying my felt sewing fun...

and Teddy and Chiffon love this cushion as they relax on the sofa together.

Happy Winter days and nights to all who are touched by Winter's magic!

New Year Wishes and Stories

Happy New Year to all!

I'm linking this post to Art Journal Journey where the theme by Erika is "every journal page tells a story."

The piece below is a magical Sparkle land where you can meet my Russian dolls and fairies, as well as Flower, the red horse below, as named by Lulu.
I really enjoyed sitting in the evenings making these sweet characters, they brought some magic to our home this christmas.

The fairies love to take a ride on Flower's back and fly over tree tops topped with snow!

 These  two quickly became the best of friends and love to fly all around the land spreading their magic fairy dust everywhere.

 Flower is gentle and so kind, she will willingly fly you or pull your sledge around.

Also sharing a misty view from home on Christmas day and some snaps taken in the snowy hills, it snowed right at the beginning of the school holidays not far up in the hills, we were so pleased!

Lots of snowmen and sledging fun, we too shared some of the magic from Sparkle Land!

Best wishes to all for a healthy and very happy New Year!
