11  Winnie The Pooh Mural - No Disney here!! ;) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: January 22, 2012 12:24:29 AM
I nanny for a *nearly* 2 year old boy, who LOVES Winnie the Pooh, but, not the Disney versions, (Which I don't think he has ever even watched!) He loves the original stories and drawings. So, as it is his Birthday coming up soon (Two months!) I offered to paint his play room, as all the walls were white and bare. No fun for a kiddie!
Of course, we all decided on a Winnie the Pooh theme.
I chose an illustration from the story 'Tiggers Don't Climb Trees' and started from there. I wanted all the characters in, so I added owl on a branch of the tree, and on the wall on the other side of the door, I added Rabbit from, oh, the story has escaped me! Sorry! Basically, Rabbit finds a note from Christopher Robin on his door.
The little boy was so good when I was painting in his room, knowing not too come to close, and re-assuringly pointing at the Characters and telling me who they were! Phew!
He loves his new playroom, and will always randomly point and say 'Christopher Robin!' or, 'Pooh Bear!' Like its the first time he has seen them, and has no idea how they got there Cheesy

This is the original:

I realised a few minutes after painting Rabbit, than he is actually a really pale sandy brown. Gah! At least the little boy knew it was A rabbit, he just thought it was Peter Rabbit!!

I'd love to know what you think, and I would love to hear any comments or advice!!

Buzzy bees!

Hey, thats better!

Coming together!

I've finished it now, so when I am there next, (monday) I will be able to take actual finished pictures =0
Its all done! The photos are a little awkward, as they had put all the furniture back in by the tim eI got around to taking photographs! But hopefully you get the idea Wink

Hope you like!

12  Halloween Sprytlings! Zombie, Ghoul, Pumpkin and Dreamweaver =D in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: September 26, 2011 11:02:51 AM

Been having so much fun making All Hallows Eve themed Sprytlings this week! I painted them all by hand, onto white cotton, so they would all have a truly individual feel. They all have little unique-ities! I absolultey loved making these, and was pleasently suprised, as I didn't think I would have as much fun with it as I did!

Heres the terrible trio!!


Ponky The Pumpkin...

Mr. Zombie!

And The Dreamweaver... (All the white glows in the dark!)

I'd love to know what you think of them! =D Thanks for looking xx

13  Aeirali - Rain Spryte! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: September 18, 2011 11:15:32 AM
Aeirali is a Rain Spryte, she travels down with the rain drops, making sure they find their way to the lakes, streams, rivers and that the plants get a fair share =)
She does get distracted though by the sparkle of the water, and spends hours placing dew drops on all the leaves!
Aeirali loves the grey skies of an incoming downpour, dancing in the rain, splashing in puddles and rolling in the dewy grass!

I had so much fun making her, she has been in my head for ages, I was so glad to finally get to see her all made up!!

Little drops of dew on her hands, as she places them on the leaves!

Her other Hand

She has dew drops in her hair too! (Those drops of dew get everywhere you know!)

She has lots of dew on her skirt, it collects there for safe travel, until Aeirali places them in the meadows and gardens.

Hope you like her! C+C always welcomed, of course!

14  Steampunk Spryte (WIP) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: September 13, 2011 02:46:22 AM

I've been working on a really exciting Spryte recently! A Steampunk Spryte! She has been in my head a little while, and I couldnt hold of any longer =) She is *almost* finished, I just need to add the the little details I think, but I may end up adding lots more (As I usually do!)
I'm really happy with how she is turning out, and wanted to share! Love to hear what you think, and if you have any comments on how to improve her? She has a nature/leaf theme to her, as after all, she is still a woodland Spryte! Wink

15  Wee Sprytlings....!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: September 09, 2011 05:47:39 AM
I've been making little baby Sprytes recently, and called them Sprytlings! They're a little more reserved than the Sprytes, (as they are only just getting the hang of this mischievousness thing)
 Wink They are simpler than the sprytes, and have furry, spiky hair, and either a leaf nappy or petal tu-tu. As always, I'd  Love to hear what you think!! !

This is Dandy!! Dandy is such a sweet little darling!
Always a smile on his face and a word to cheer you up and make you grin!
Hello Dandy! Dandy is always making the Sprytes laugh with his odd behaviour and mannerisms, and be sure not to call a Dandelion a weed infront of him, you will make him cross indeed!

Poh is a giggling, dancing swirl of a sprytling, never still for a moment!
She loves to go into flower beds and dance and sway with the Pollen, then fall down and tell jokes with the weeds, till she cannot laugh anymore!

Obie is the first Sprytling to come out of the Woods.
He is a cheeky little thing, always hiding and playing tricks!
Obie was born in a large patch of moss, and loves nothing more than going and snuggling down in a patch!

It was fun to make something new, I've got loads of ideas for more too!!!

16  Lothiel, Flower Daughter in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: August 10, 2011 12:50:58 AM
My newest addition, Lothiel!
Lothiel is a Flower Daughter, born from flower seeds that contained a special mixture of majick and mischief. Flower Sprytes are not born very often, as it is so hard to get that combination of majick and mischief just right! But when it does happen, its a very special occasion indeed!
Flower Sprytes (And especially Flower Daughters, because Flower Sons always forget!) know the secret of growing the flowers that produce Flower Spryte Seeds, and so having a Flower Daughter in a Spryte Tribe is a very coveted thing indeed!
Lothiel has just started learning all about the flowers secrets (Flower Sprytes can talk to the Flowers of course) and absolutely loves nothing more than snuggling down in a flower bed and chatting the day away!
You know you have a Flower Spryte in your garden if your flowers are growing well! (Flowers love to be chatted to!)

I'm not particularly girlie, but absolutley loving making this little Spryte! I was unsure wether to give her any clothes on her top half, and in the end decided not too. What do you reckon?

All C+C appreciated !
Many thanks =)

17  Naughty Sprytes! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: August 03, 2011 01:45:57 PM

I haven't been able to post on here for ages, as for some reason I have been unable to upload photos! But it seems to have worked itsself out, and I have been wanting to share my little Sprytes with you and hear what you think =)

This is Morwenna, a Witch Spryte! I loved making all her little accessories, she has a wand, a herb vial, a hag stone, and a hare familiar. =) Forgot upload photos of those though..!!

This is Emelia ( In the forefront) A naughty little thing! And in the Background is Aranion, King of the Wild things. He is mine, and just recently has been reconstructed due to a dog attack =(

This is Beatrix the English Rose =) That cape took me ageees, but was so worth it! ( I think anyway! )

This is Muki Malik, who likes, as you may have guessed, to get verrrry mucky!!

And this is Fhaelita, who is loyal and caring, but with a fierce attitude =D

I love making these dolls so much, and seeing all their unique characters come through!!!

18  The Night Watcher in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: April 04, 2011 11:47:07 PM

I just finished a new doll! I wanted to go with something a little different to what I usually do, so I chose black as  the main body colour.
He is called the night watcher. =)
Im still not sure if he needs anything more, as I did want to do more bodypaint, but can't actually think of how to go about it and actually execute it well!!
So please, let me know what you think!

19  Woodland Sprytes!!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by treasures_Of_Albion on: March 29, 2011 01:55:52 AM
I started making dolls a little while ago, and I would love to hear your opinions!!

This is my newest one, Pandora. She is my most detailed one so far!!

Pandora is a recluse, living high up in the trees.
She is hard, sometimes mean, and always determined.
Pandora is a born hunter gatherer, so she needs only her own wit to get by. For things she cannot get herself, she trades the extra fur and food she gathers.
For example, her most prized possesion, her cloak, was a trade with a skilled Spryte in need of fur.

All comments/constructive critism is warmly welcomed, and thanks for looking!!

20  Trinket Covered bed = Very burnt fingers!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by treasures_Of_Albion on: May 04, 2009 12:47:35 PM
When I saw the button covered sofa entry for decorate with buttons, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299469.0 I immediatly scanned my room for something to cover!!
And seeing as my bed was the first thing i saw, i figured i'd go with it. So here it is!!!

I stuck all sorts on here, jewellery, shells, bottle tops, figurines, and of course, buttons.
There's still a couple of areas that need building up, they look a little bare!!

( sorry for the mess!!!)

Sorry about the blurry pics, im sure they fine when i took them!! Arg. I will try take some better ones!!!

A couple of bits have fallen off, so im working up the courage to get the glue gun out and stick them on again, as i am really good at burning myself!
Haha, I am planning to go up the posts, too. Its sooo addictive Cheesy
Thanks for looking!!!
