challenge #2

Be inspired by woodland

Challenge #2: A Walk in the Woods

In the fall, we often take long walks in the woods to enjoy the crisp air and turning of the leaves. For this challenge, let the forest be your inspiration. Create a project inspired by the woods. For ideas, check out this Pinterest board.

I've made a layout inspired by bears.
Teddy bears in fact!
While in Germany I visited the Steiff store and bought a little something for my daughter.

I've used autumn colours on this including torn mulberry paper to get the fuzzy bear look.
I added flowers, a butterfly and a heart to echo the woodland.
The photo on the left has lots of woodland creatures.
Next I used a reindeer
I painted through a stencil of a tree using brown paint on hessian.
I had a wood veneer reindeer that I wanted to use.
After searching Pinterest I  found this (there are lots of reindeer ideas on Pinterest)
That made me think of liquid pearls

Here is my finished card with snow on the tree, plus reindeer.
And while on the reindeer theme I made these from felt.
The pattern is on Pinterest.

The layout is lovely. We adore Steiff animals - even though I don't have one - and each nephew or niece gets one for their first or second Christmas. I need to go out and find something super cuddly for my niece this Chrismas!

Those reindeer ornaments are simply gorgeous! I know I wouldn't have the patience to make them but they are adorable
