STUNNING KEWPIE AIRPLANE
Welcome on board Kirsten............
Some time ago, I looked into making a 3D plane from paper. I found that this had been done a few times before - so I left it for some time. In my search for ideas, I found several simple toilet role planes. I was was also inspired by the colours and the simplicity of theGentleman crafter's Christmas plane, made out of two boxes.
This plane is made of old papers and recycled materials, and it was quite simple to build. The body of the plane is made from a toilet roll. I have added the tail, which is made from packaging cardboard. The wings are made from the same material as the tail. The wings are glued and stapled to the toilet roll.
Inside the plane, I have put one of the Valentine Kewpies a digital stamp/ image from Nicecrane designs. This Kewpie has been printed out twice - and one of the images has been mirrored. I coloured the Kewpie with Prismacolors, cut out the images and glued them back to back.
Take a look to the original Kewpie image
And now,,,, the stunning airplane by Kirsten Hyde
I used an old gear from a clock as the propeller. The wheels are two old soda corks with a round plastic resin inside. As the base of the pennant, I used an old spring from an old clock.
The paper on the body of the plane is from G45 - Transatlantic collection. The paper on the wings and tale is from Basic, Grey: Hello Luscious - Zesty. The gold paper is from Søstrene Grene.
The Kewpies were first printed over 100 years ago, in 1909, and was popular as characters in different magazines, as paper dolls and as dolls. For a period now, vintage images and figures has been popular again. Nicecrane designs has several set of Kewpies images, but these are the newest ones.
Maple leavesAre you a Jessie Willcox Fan?,,,,,,if so,,,,you ´d love this amazing collection,,,,,byt this illustrator,,,,. I asked to Sally Holmes to work with my "Incredible Jessie Willcox" and here is adorable card. Woww woww,,, such inspirational one,,,,,,,,,,enjoy it.
Vintage Jessie Willcox Card by Sally HolmesHere is another of those beautiful Nicecrane images from the Incredible Jessie Willcox collection. I loved the blue dress contrasting with the autumn leaves and so layered the image on snippets of copper and blue papers and mounted on a card base. This had been dusted and stamped with the Inkylicious maple leaves in Kaleidacolor Autumn leaves ink. The sentiment is from Inky Doodles. I am off to Miss Di's snippet playground with this one. Hope it is a bit drier than it is here - might need a hot toddy to keep me going! Steve went out to fill the bird feeders in time for this weekend's big garden Birdwatch, and it was rain that hurt! Great big spots that were cold and blown at you with force!
I also needed another thank you card for a male, so I used the larger of the maple leaf stamps and Kaleidacolor Creole Spice.
The Sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque and fit perfectly in the stripe where I put the masking tape. This ended up less clean and simple than I'd intended - another 'save' where my fingertips had left their little smudges! I do love this ink pad!
Enjoy some previoius works by Sally with this collection:
The gorgeous set of Jessie Wilcox images appealed to me instantly as it seems so rare to see images of children reading these days! It took me back to the days of Janet and John reading books! I added some snippets of paper from some magazines and stamped the main background papers with Vintage flowers (Inkylicious) in Tea Dye DI.

Thanks to the Team and welcome again Kirsten....
