Hello my dear friends!
We are excited to share our delightful Mr. McGregor's Garden table Lamp with you today.
It was a long cherished adventure to be sure.
It is entered into Mary & Leo's "Masion de Madeline Challenge"
We were inspired by the Tales of Peter Rabbit in Mr Mc Gregor's Garden storybook. Thus began our journey into the world of Peter Rabbit.
We made the Madison de Madeline lamp http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=53&products_id=348
The brown windows and watering cans are from Mary's "Mother's Garden Kit" http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=44&products_id=306
The Flower pots, multi color flowers and green leaves in the flower pot and behind the fence were from Mary's "Chamomile Friendship kit http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=30&products_id=191
The Bunnies, Carrots, tiny birds and raindrops are from Mary's "April Avenue kit" "http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11&products_id=300
The Pansies are from Mary's "Mom's Garden Kit" http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=44&products_id=351
I made the picket fence using 2 shapes within Ecal.
For the green vine I used Swirls within Ecal.
The little Bumble bees are Mayr's Free file "Easter Egg Honey Bee" http://svgcuts.com/blog/2010/03/20/free-svg-file-sure-cuts-a-lot-03-20-10-easter-egg-honeybee/
We put a 2" x 2" Styrofoam into the large bottom watering can to raise the lamp base. We used pastel card stock for the watering cans, lamp base and shade and the pail with the tiny bunny peeking out. We used tiny brads for all the pansies. The light chain holds a pansy. We found the chain in our New crafty room. Pictures coming soon.
We used iridescent glitter for the tiny Bumble bees and water droplets. We used Tim Holts inks for most our inking.
This took many hours of dedication and imagination and we loved every minute of it. Taking these pictures is another story, not so grand as it took us two days...lol to get the right lighting. Wish we were within driving distance of Leo & Mary. He takes awesome pictures!
We Love our adorable enchanting table lamp!
I hope that we have inspired you to start crafting.
Mary and Leo have some amazing kits and Challenges for you.
Once you start you will Never look back! LOL
That's it my friends for another day!
Have a wonderful weekend and keep watching for New and exciting creations.
Misty & Suzanne
