These loveable little characters from the Land of Magnolia inspire us to learn new techniques and try different products. We learn about coloring mediums and types of papers and inks. We also learn about design and layout and yet we are learning a little about ourselves and what we are capable of making and learning.
So let’s travel into the Land of Magnolia to see what creative hair color Tilda might have from day to day and where Edwin might be hanging out.
Tilda is an avid card maker. She loves using the Magnolia images and coloring with Copics, Prismacolor Pencils with Odorless Mineral Spirits and Distress Inks. One of her favorite tools is the Scor-Pal that makes scoring on all her projects whether it is cards or 3d projects so much easier. Tilda knows a good thing when she sees it and can’t imagine not having one!!!
Many mornings, you will find Tilda waiting at the stone gate for Edwin to come by. She has made him a little heart surprise.
Edwin always appreciates the lovely creative things that Tilda makes for him. It makes him feel special.
Sunshine yellow is one of Tilda’s favorite colors. She has adorned her lovely little cottage with yellow flowers and her favorite dress, of course, is also sunshine yellow! It makes her feel so bright and cheery when she is surrounded by such a lively color.
Edwin is not without his own surprises! He loves to hide around a corner to see if he can surprise Tilda! Edwin might be quiet, but he is not always the angel he is supposed to be.
Sweets, sweets, sweets!
Tilda loves chocolates and candy hearts. No gummy worms for her. Besides she thinks chocolate candy is a requirement to have around when card making. She is not alone on that idea!!!
Tilda finds herself sitting in the pumpkin patch trying to decide which one would be the very best one. She wants to make Edwin her special pumpkin pie recipe so only the best will do!
Strolling through the garden looking at all the beautiful flowers, Tilda finds herself watching a butterfly or two and enjoys their pretty colors and how easily they float from one flower to another. She knows nature is a wondrous thing and shouldn’t be taken for granted by any of us.
One afternoon Tilda and Edwin decided to go on a mushroom hunt. They looked and looked but couldn’t find a single one. Tilda made the best of the day though and found lots of pretty flowers to fill her basket instead.
If I counted correctly Patti Jo used 18 MAGNOLIA STAMPS and two ALOTA STAMPS. Every page is adorned with the most beautiful little punched flowers. To say this is a masterpiece is a true understatement. Patti thank you so much for your wonderful creation! I can't wait for our granddaughter Sienna to be old enough to truly appreciate your beautifully illustrated story book. My husband Roy has actually asked to be the first one to read her your story. Our family will treasure this keepsake forever.
