The Secret Fairy Garden.

Hi everyone,


This is a mirror I designed in my head some time ago. Last night I finally got around to actually making it!


I covered a plain pine mirror frame with some papers from Papermania Secret Garden collection. The fairies are of course Lili of The Valley stamps and coloured with Distress Inks and Watercolour pencils.


The red and white toadstool was made with a scrap of red card, with white Card Candi stuck on. Now for the technical bit. For the stalk, I cut a scrap of cream coloured Co-Ordinations card, making a slightly wavy line with my scissors! Lol!! Rolled it over my finger, then edged it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Attached it to the mirror with 3mm foam pads!
The flowers are from my flower stash. The foliage was originally bought for my Dollshouse garden. I just chopped it up in small pieces.

This pic is a bit blurry, as I found it rather awkward taking pictures of a mirror, without getting my own ugly mug in the glass!! So I had to hold my arms out in front of my body, without anything to support them.



This last fairy was from the free pack that I got with a magazine. I coloured her with watercolour pencils.


There is a bit of me in the bottom left corner of the mirror. Can't make out which bit!


Answers on a post card or comment please!!! Hee Hee!

Thanks for stopping by,

Luv,
