Once upon a time!

Some of you may have seen some of my 'stuff' scattered through cyber space before and you will know I love things in boxes and shrine type things....... so here's an homage to the nursery rhyme Six little Mice.

Six little mice sat down to spin
Pussy passed by and she peeped in
"What are you doing my little men?"
"Weaving coats for gentlemen"
"Shall I come in and cut off your threads?"
"No no Mistress Pussycat you'd bite off our heads"
"Oh no I'll not I'll help you to spin"
"That maybe so but you don't come in!"
All the images are from 3djean and are coloured using Tim Holtz Distress pads. Using a wet brush, or water brush pick up some ink from the pad and use as watercolour. Cut out your images.. a bit fiddly! and mount them on the cotton reels using a bit of wire stuck to the back of the image and pushed into the reel.
The shaped background is cut using the edge dies from Tim Holtz.........

A plain and simple tag, though he does look a little lost!
Watch this space for more stuff.


  1. Lovely little cameo scene with a perfect poem. Very sweet.

  2. How cool is that?! I love this piece.

  3. Fantastic piece, love the dimension and the theme......those stamps are fab too !

  4. Love the little cotton whiskers and the use of the edge die is fab!

  5. I love this! Very unusual and pretty. Never thought of cutting out the stamp image.
