Polka Doodles Create & Craft TV Samples - Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun - Part 3


It's me again!!

I'm here showing another two of my samples made for TV using the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun collection

These two samples were so much fun to make and were so detailed they did take me a few hours to make but hours spent very well indeed.  Everything was cut by hand and my trusty sharp scissors!!

Here goes:

By now you will all know of my love of decoupage and cutting out little itty bits of paper to make up scenes and so the owls go well with my love of layers etcetera.

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Robins and choir printed out several times on white card
  • Papers from the collection layered up on Do Crafts Designer to make up the layered selection of scenes etcetera
  • Embellishments and decorations from the collection
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • 8x8 card
  • Sentiment from the collection - 'Owl Wish You a Merry Christmas'
  • Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
  • Glossy Accents
  • Tinsel / Faux Snow
  • Snowflake Die (Free gift from Quick Cards)
And here is my second make....  remember when I said a couple of posts ago that I'd made something different with the house templates, well this is it!!!  I resized all the houses into teeny weeny size in Word and then cut them out and layered them up to make a framed scene/picture using different embellishments from the collection.

  • These are the ingredients I used:

  • Template houses made smaller and resized in Word and cut out
  • Frame 
  • Acrylic paint in white
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • Mod podge to adhere the Art Glitter Fauxd Snow
  • Scene printed from the collection 
  • Embellishments from collection

Hope you've enjoyed looking at my samples and stay tuned for tomorrow for the final sample which I've saved till last because it's my favourite.

Take care

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…

Hi everyone 

Hope you've been keeping well since my last post. 
I've been attending art group still and learning new techniques as I go. 
I've done a few paintings since I shared my owl one, which I'll be sharing later this month, but here is my recent completed one from start to finish. I used watercolours from Royal Langnickel and water soluble oil pastels which were really cheap from The Works, fur texture created with KohINoor pencils and Posca white pen. Hope you like it. Here's some close ups and the finished project all framed up.

Starting to watercolour the background and the background and watercoloured bunny beginning to add detail  Close up of the detail using the Kohinoor pencils  Hello there.....just look at the texture on the fur.

 I achieved the background flowers by just dabbing a paint brush in multi colours and then dabbing them onto the paper after adding brush strokes of green for the stems and grass.  Boo......just look at my beautiful eyes.  a…
