Life in the Forest is here!

From my first sight of the Spring / Summer catalogue way back in December, I knew I 'needed' the Life in the Forest set. The fox, the mouse, the toadstool, I loved it!!

This is a project I thought of while I was waiting for it to arrive and I loved making it! It's pretty hand cut intensive, which is unusual for me as most people know I'm allergic to cutting out ..... my usual question is "it's lovely, does it have a matching punch / framelits"?

I brayered the background, having only recently got back into the brayering malarky. The trees, toadstools and those cute creatures were all paper pieced; the mouse's ears took some careful cutting! I cut outside of the line to make it look a bit like raw edge applique.

The only image that didn't make it into this piece was the hedgehog, but it won't be long before he makes an appearance! I think the fox is still my favourite with plenty more makes to come featuring him. 

If you would like to have a go at making your own, please contact me to order your own set of cute creatures.

Thanks for stopping by .....
