Christmas is well on its way, and to celebrate I created another town in my Candyland series. Everything in the scene was handmade (apart from the fairy lights) and photographed by yours truly.
The tree was made by using a paper mache tree model from Hobbycraft and then I covered it in green royal icing – which took ages! The two other trees in the shot had been made for previous versions of candyland using clay, paint and nerd sweets.
If you want to read more on how I made the gingerbread house, please see my previous blog post here.
With these photos I’ve been making Christmas cards for my up and coming craft fair in Shoreham. I love making cards and it helps me unwind after a long day of editing at the computer. I’ve posted some on my Etsy store too, along with prints of my work. If you fancy, you can check them out here.
Christmas Craft Fair
With Christmas fast approaching it, christmas craft fairs are out in full swing. I love exhibiting my work at them, chatting to people, seeing other artists and crafters and hopefully making some money!
This year I’m exhibiting with Paper daisy Events at the Shoreham Centre on Saturday 3rd December. Its free entry from 10am – 3pm.
I’ve also donated a prize of a Photoshoot towards the charity tombola, in aid of Chestnut Tree House. For more information you can go to their website here.
Hope to see you there!
