From Door To House!!

Phew!! I finally finished this project!!
All I wanted to do, was to make a scene for a Fairy 
I made  with my air dry clay. 
She had been sitting on a shelf above my desk, for a few 
years and I also wanted to give her some hair and clothes!! 

I did a crackle effect on the door and the frame.
I Die cut some Ivy and a climbing floral item
to decorate the bare frame.

The Bunnies are wood from my stash and I just painted them.
The Toadstools and the snail, I made using
some white air dry clay, then painted them with acrylic paint.

She is made with my clay and her clothes are all 
made with ribbons from my stash.
She is sitting on a piece of wood, like a piece
of a tree trunk. Bought from Hobbycraft.

She does have pink wings. I cut them from beautiful
Organza fabric and added some Stickles to it.
For her hair, I used some of my Felting wool.
I made a plait, which goes right around her head too.

I made a box to add onto the back of the Fairy door.
Was very fiddley because of the shape of the frame.
I had done it before but couldn't remember exactly
how I did do it!!   (Old age!!)

I lined it with a piece of beautiful rose pink Foil Card
from Hobbycraft. Can't see it properly because of the 
shadow on it. 
The black Fairy flying in, is a die cut one using glittered
card, again from Hobbycraft.
The Fairy sitting at her mirror, is an old stamp from
Lily of The Valley. Coloured with Copics pens.
Again, the pink and purple doesn't  look as bright as it is.

I know it took a long time to do. But I thought that a little girl 
could open the door and see something. So they
wouldn't be disappointed, just seeing a hole!!
I know I would be!!! Lol!!!

So this is why I haven't posted for ages, as I also had 
Easter cards to make for the Care Home I support.
Finished them today.

Thank you for taking the time  to pop into
my blog. As you know, we  all do love to get  some
messages from our blogging friends.

Stay safe still. 
Big hugs
