Do You Believe in Fairies .....


                                              Click on Image to enlarge 

Hello to all my fellow bloggers and new friends that have joined. My inspiration was running on empty all this week, so when I picked up my stamp to start this project I had no idea what it was going to end up looking like, never mind where I was going to start.  Isn’t it so annoying when this happens !



I made my topper by stamping my little boy with archival ink and coloured him in with distress inks. I highlighted the leaves and flowers with my versamark pen and embossed, to give more texture. I then part die cut out the oval and ran my versamark pen around the edges and embossed with gold powder. I sprinkled frantage, distressed and used a crackle stamp to create more texture. This then sat on my work surface waiting on the vital craft tool....  Inspiration.

Finally,  today I started to feel inspired. My little boy had now fallen asleep in the garden amongst the flowers after hunting around looking for Fairies. While he slept the inquisitive little Fairies made an appearance. Can you spot them ?







Picture in my head where my project was finally going now, I stamped some rose leaves and crackles onto my background paper, distressed and rubbed gilding wax on the edges and glued onto a wooden tag which was reduced in the bargain stores to 50p. Don’t you just love a bargain !! 



My flowers I die cut and placed onto my flourish die to look as if they were cradling the little boy as he slept. I widened the edges with my lace doily edger and rolled round to give the effect of being cradled again. Layered and pieced everything together, finally adding my little fairies. 



                                                      

The Craft Fairies are also busy just now, delivering my parcel of Cheery Lynn goodies from my Challenge wins, along with a few more I couldn’t resist getting. I have a lot of inspiration stashed away for them and can’t wait to start. If I have forgotten something or you would like to ask me something please email me.

Hope you all have a lovely creative weekend.Bye for now,
