This picture just refuses to upload the right way round, tilt your head to the left and you'll get the idea.
I really have to thank my mum for this one, the wonderful use of sheoaks was her idea and she helped construct it :)

Wreath a Day: 16

This is my collage wreath. I folded up a page of a magazine like a fan and cut triangles out of it which created diamonds. I like it, it's kind of like a kaleidoscope.

Wreath a Day: 3

I just realised I never established how many wreaths total I would have to make for it to be one a day until Christmas. So hear it is the grand total of wreaths I'll have cluttering my house come Christmas day is 38. Whoa that seems like a lot, and here's number three.

This one I made with cut up paint chips from the hardware store and some left over split pins I had lying around.

Wreath a Day: 1

Despite the gloomy weather here in/around Brisbane I've been infected with holiday spirit and took it upon myself to make the family a wreath for this years Christmas. After getting started I decided why not make a wreath every day until Christmas. Now those of you who have read my blog for a while may be aware how bad I am at sticking to one a day sort of goals but this time I'm adamant and almost completely sure I'll do it.

The rules are as follows: I must make (construct, draw, create, represent) a wreath for every day from and including today to and including Christmas. I do not have to make each wreath on it's respective day I just have to make enough to fill every day, and I must post a wreath here on this blog every single day.

So now that's all clear let me present wreath number 1:

For this wreath I used a bamboo hoop I got at Lincraft and wrapped it with wool ribbon, and micro suede. As I made it I loved it, hated it, and ended with satisfaction.

Kay Nielsen

What better way to brighten an afternoon than looking at Kay Nielson illustrations. That's what I've been doing and already I want to give up National Novel Writing Month and try my hand at drawing again.
Maybe a bit of both would be alright, and I mustn't neglect Hearsay.

Here are my favourites for the moment, enjoy.

A snowdrift carried the three princesses away, from The Three Princesses in the Blue Mountains

For the life of him he couldn't choose between them

Princess Minon-Minette

What a terrible dream, from The Inconstant Prince

The lovely gardner boy, from The Widow's Son

The ship headed about and sped over the depth of the sea

The unicorn

Pop, out flew the moon.

The horse begged him to look behind him, from East of the Sun West of the Moon

You will see three princesses

A big thank you to Tegan and Kelsey for being my two models, and to Leah for doing the hair, make up, and being the photography assistant.


I'm so proud of this collection and am thrilled to finally be sharing it with all of you.
This blog has tied in strongly with themes and names in this collection, you need only check out some of my mermaid, nymph, or collection development posts to see how.
