Well I'm not to please how this turned out, but after
the sneak peek I felt I had to show it..
First I saw this done with Vivian who is an amazing
mixed media artist, this is her blog contadinak.wordpress.com
the video she did which inspired me called Seeds,
I tried to post the link but wouldn't work you can
find her on you tube contadin K...
Anyway I layed down masking tape then gesso over that,
I painted it with this fabric paint I have and sprayed it
with water to make the colours run, then I ironed some
Angelina together and glued this on.
I gessoed some stencils a brick wall, and the bird house.
I had a pic from a National Geographic mag. so I put a wide
piece to tape over the image, they looked like gnomes to me:):)
I burnished the paper off with water so it leaves an inked image.
Used some gauze to make the arbour, added a bit of stickle to
make it sort of mystical. I drew with my glue gun the branches
and rocks in the garden. I used metallic cream paints to colour the
hot glue and the gessoed bird house. I glued beads on for the
seeds on the branches and coloured them with copics
Please have a look at Vivian's video its amazing and what
inspired me. THANKS for looking
NAMASTE to you all...

My friend Jan wanted me to make her another box, she is sending it to
Amsterdam so it has to be flat again, I can't wait to do a box it can
do more 3D, lol.
So i used some paper I made. I used paper towels under my inked water colour
paper and have kept it all :):)
I stamped my new Fairy stamps i got at Christmas, they are from Docraft
Papermania, enchanted, Fairies of little Venice, I love them:):)
Okay I stamped them on white tissue paper, I coloured them with my copics
hard to tell with the backgrounds colours, I did use almost the same colours.
The stamps are coloured on the back and I used the same colours.
There was a hole in the end of the box, so kool I've been wanting
to use a glass bead with a pic behind it, perfect to put a picture from
a calender of Lady Cottingtons pressed fairy book, one of my favs.
She looks like she has been encased in the box, love how that turned out..
Well thanks so much for looking, NANASTE to you all...
