Flower Bubbles

Good morning and a very warm welcome. This is my first post from my new home and my new craft room  MR2! (Making Room mark 2)
its wonderful to be crafting again especially  for the  Make My Monday challenge which this week is  hosted by the lovely Rosie. She would like to see
 Mythical Creatures
Here's mine: Queen of the Fairies
 The gorgeous image is from a lovely sheet  from Nicecrane Designs : The Water Babies vol 1. I just love these images. The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley is one of the earliest books that I remember as a very small child....  mainly the images , not the story! I had to remind myself of the story. Here's a link if you'd like to be reminded of the story 

 The Queen of the fairies is surrounded by "flower bubbles" made from a cupcake wrap, distressed with DI's Antique Linen and Iced Spruce then randomly "splashed with little shiny spheres... don't know what they're called? The backing paper is from a 12x12 by Jodie Lee ( I think) which has been through the Cuttlebug using a swirly Sizzix folder to give the impression of the sea /waves. It was then sanded to achieve the appearance  white foam :-)

A few little gems added before mounting onto a white base card. 14x14cm.

A heads up

Looking forward to seeing you there

I'm hoping to get back into the swing of crafting and blogging and will get round to seeing you eventually. Although my craft stash is unpacked.... it's not in any order! In fact I'm not sure where everything is... it needs sorting! It will get done slowly... I just needed to unpack it and CRAFT!! It will be my cluttered sanctuary... my new home need lots of attention ie: new bathroom, kitchen, total redecoration, carpets etc... then there is garden!!! but I love it here.
 Looking forward to catching up with you all.
