Time for another Enchanted Adventure...

Wow what a week. Just started a new graphic design job last week and my computer must not of been too happy with that as it decided to crash and as I'm always going to backup my files but never do I unfortunately lost a whole lot of stuff but such is life and on I go!!

As I'm still caught up in my little world of make believe at the moment I thought I'd post another one of my fairytale collages of a friends two beautiful children. I've become a little addicted to these and making up fairy tales to go with them.

Once Upon a time there were two children a brother and sister. They loved to play together but when no one was looking they would sneak inside their toy cupboard, why because at the back of the cupboard there was a magical little doorway which was hidden to the whole world and they were the only ones who knew about it.

They would often sneak through the doorway when no one was looking, on this particular day after squeezing through the door the children saw a large red gumboot! As the children loved an adventure they decided to climb in.

Once the children were safely in the boot it magically lifted off the ground and began to float up into the sky. The children looked up to see how they were floating and above them tied to the gumboot was the largest pink pig they had ever seen.

As they began to float higher in the sky and over the beautiful rolling green hills they noticed the most peculiar of sights. An elephant dressed in a red waist coat with gold frills sitting at a table with a large glass of milk and a plate full of chocolate chip cookies. He didn't seem to mind them flying over top and just kept enjoying his snack as they passed by.

They didn't always get to see many animals on their enchanted trips to this magical wonderland but on this particular day they were in for another great treat. The children overheard a mummy & daddy telling their child to sit down in the pram, when they looked down over the edge of the gumboot they could not see and other humans and it was very strange to hear the voice of a grown up as the only other people they ever seen were other children because it was a known fact amongst children that only those who behaved had a magical door, naughty children and grown ups were not allowed at all! Instead they seen two dogs dressed in the most beautiful vintage clothing standing on their hind legs pushing a pram, inside the pram was a small excited puppy with a pretty little bonnet on. In all the times they had been to the magical land they had never heard any of the animals speak, this was so exciting for them.

What an amazing time the children had this visit, as the wind was no blowing them back towards the doorway they knew they're trip was over. I wonder what would happen on their next visit.

till next time, have fun!!

An Enchanted Adventure....

Yeh! I'm back so sorry to leave for so long but had been moving house then I misplaced the lead for my camera and well I'm here now. Whilst away I remembered the most magical adventure which I'd love to share with you.

It started with a lovely little couple who had just got married and were wishing they could go on an enchanted adventure for their honeymoon.

Whilst sneaking away behind the church they happen to come across an oversized teacup now as it wasn't quite yet afternoon tea and there was nothing inside they decided to climb into the cup (can you imagine how hard this was in a long wedding gown:-)) but she didn't mind for this was going to be such an exciting adventure.....

Next thing they knew they had started floating high up above the church and a gentle breeze was blowing them in a direction they had never yet been, it was infact the land of imagination.

A little way along in their trip they could hear the giggling of a young girl. How could this be possible when they were so far from anyone? Just then some shimmery dust fell from above and they looked up and seen the most beautiful little girl perched upon the moon with sparkly butterfly wings they knew for sure she must be a magical fairy child.

This trip was beginning to become ever so exciting for them after waving to the little girl they then peered down over the edge of their giant tea cup when they saw shining silver dragonflies, which was not what they were expecting at all as they could clearly hear a conversation, could this be the dragonflies talking? The couple overheard them saying that they would be quite late for the tea party if they didn't stop sitting round eating the fairy sherbert trees in the enchanted forrest below and with that they flutterd off into the distance.....

My goodness gracious me I wonder what will happen next????

Till next time , bright blessing of happiness to you. Jul.xx

The Yummy world of Art.

My idea with this blog is to immerse you in all the yummies I have found whilst swimming through the big wide cyberworld and occasionly I'll even post some piccies of my artwork.

Feel free to comment and let me know what you think of my findings. I enjoy to talking with others who share a passion for all things eccentric and arty.

Never before have I ever been more inspired to leap back into my art projects then in the last few days. I have almost been drowning in the creativity pouring from some amazingly talently humans who are currently walking this beautiful world of ours and making it oh so pretty with every step they take.

I would have to start with the extremely talented Vanessa Valencia (how could she not be talented and beautiful with a gorgeous name like that) this young lady is a successful painter, doll maker, illustrator, doodle maker, jewellery maker and my favourite mess maker! Her magnetic blog which features some of the most mesmerising piccies (I just wanted to jump through the screen and into her magical world) will have you signing up and waiting on the edge of your set for her next little adventure. Grab a cuppa and jump through the keyhole at  A Fanciful Twist .

Until next time, enjoy ever colourful moment of your life. :-)
