A Vase Holder for All Seasons................................

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Well have I had a fabulous first day off on my week off from work :)

I decided to get down and dirty in the Beach Hut today, and started off by locating an item that I could alter.  Then found the very large bucket of gesso and some sand coloured paint.  Then I decided to do a year in one day...........................sounds odd I know but you will see below.  I apologise that you may wish to get yourself a cuppa now as this post is going to be photo heavy.

So I found a Vase Holder and decided to create four different sides, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter

Here are a couple of photographs showing two sides a corner sort of view
This is Spring and Winter
This is Autumn and Summer

I started with Summer
I used some lovely flowery papers and created a frame from an around the page punch.  The Sunshine sentiment is from a House Mouse stamp kit.  I added some liquid pearls and draped the lace around the frame, allowing Tilda to just sit on the frame with the lace passing her bottom. The large butterfly with those gorgeous wings was originally a hand bag charm that broke, I added other butterflies and flowers to keep it company.
I then did Winter. The cool blues and white along with some sparkly pull ribbon and white flowers with just a sprinkling of silver glitter and the stars are from a 60th Birthday cake and a couple of snowflakes to finish it off.  I used the sketch from Just magnolia on this one and made sure that it had flowers galore too.
Autumn was next with the pale blues, browns and greens with the red cherries, berries and the applies in her altered basket to fit in with the Simon Says challenge.  The red ribbon is threaded in an out of the nestie frame and she has some fern in with her apples.
Finally Spring, I just had to use yellow, and I am a little short of Maggie images so removed the hearts on this one and used bubbles instead.  The fluff for chicks, the little rabbit and the lovely daffodil flowers with a couple of pins just to finish it off. The papers on this one are Papermania. The sentiment computer generated and hand cut.

All edges have been distressed or torn some have been distressed with Tim Holtz Old Paper.

I really enjoyed creating this piece it took me all day on and off.  The images are all coloured with copics.

I would like to welcome my new followers and thank my wonderful visitors.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Just Magnolia - Sketch and flowers Galore

Hugs and enjoy your evening
