I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

No more flowers...



Not here at Words and Pictures, anyway... You'll have to hop over to The Artistic Stamper to see them, and even there, the flowers are in pretty short supply.

You'll see why... this sneak peek is here to tempt you over to a creation inspired by the song You Don't Bring Me Flowers - so, like I say, ain't no flowers round here today!

Hope you enjoy it...

In sympathy with the sentiment of the song, you may be wondering where I've disappeared to.  I'm finding it tricky to get out and about in Craftyblogland at the moment - but I will be back!!  

Thank you so much for all your lovely visits and comments in the meantime... they make me so happy.  I'm looking forward to being able to return the compliment soon.


If you come at four in the afternoon, I'll begin to be happy by three.
From The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

On my way to look right now, Alison! Thanks for finding time to check my blog at the weekend; knowing how busy you are makes it even more appreciated. Have a good day (week!)

Had a peek and clever you with the beeswax Alison. She really looks like one unhappy lady with no one bringing her flowers. Fabulous.

Loved these silicone molds when I first saw them on C & C a while ago but haven't been able to buy. So excited that Artistic stamper had them in but alas the one I want is out of stock - boo hoo. Ah well always Ally Pally.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

What beautiful projects you´ve made the last time! I had only time to take a short look in here, because I'm stuck in the middle of renovations. The flowerpot and the tiny roses are soooo cute! Of course the rest too :)

Just came back from hearing the song and saw your post. Bravo Alison!!! You did a fantastic job! Now that song is ringing in my head. Thanks???
Hugs, Cathy-Lynn LOL

Candy C said...

Alison...your wall hanging is very cool! All of the distressing and layering of texture and stamped words and images looks amazing. Those little beeswax pots are very cool and I love how you finished the one out that you added to your hanging. Gorgeous little flowers, too. X, Candy

Deborah said...

Just been to look, Alison. A beautiful hanging with a definite feeling of melancholy and decaying love. Of course you have me humming that bloomin' song now LOL

Sandy said...

Wonderful Alison! This would not have had the same effect without that very old looking urn!

Meggymay said...

Princess Judy Palmer said...

It's a wonderful hanging! There is so much fabulous distressing on the piece. You definitely captured the feel of despair but with a bit of hope in that one pristine white flower.

Coco said...

Fabulous new creation Alison!!! Hugs, Coco xxx

Lisa M said...

Been there, read it...seen it...nearly fainted! GORGEOUS...but I said that there too.
hugs!

Julia said...

Great piece of Art Alison. So many textures and things to look at. It is melancholy but not sad as it is so beautiful.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Have just taken a look, it's a great creation. Love all the elements, especially the corrugated background.

Redanne said...

I love that song - going over now for a look! Anne xx

Mary Elizabeth said...

Went by Artistic Stamper to see the details on this amazing project. Love every part! The ivy found such a great home on this wall hanging. I just can't get over how much the dabs crackle paint adds to the overall feel of this piece. You made me laugh out loud with your description of being impatient with clay. I can just see you with your bees wax :) That urn turned out amazing and you really did a great job finding flowers to fit it. great scale. Such an amazing work (even if I have to go around hearing Barbara Streisand in my head all day :) ) Hugs to you my creative friend!! -- Mary Elizabeth

Kay Wallace said...

I am definitely liking what I see, Alison...off to check out the details!

Mrs.B said...

Beautiful delicate piece. Love all the details and the beeswax planter looks fabulous.

Margaret said...

Beautiful, even if the flowers are wilting! I love the planter you created and the hanger captures the song wonderfully!

Shari Trumbull said...
