Fairy Projects

Hi, Carol here today. Sharing two projects based on fairy theme.

First I created a layout of my girl. We took this photo in Cameron Highlands Waterfall area.

I applied clear gesso over the paper and spread texture paste over 2 different stencils. Then I misted randomly with Prima tea stain color bloom and also misted over Tim Holtz stencil with Tattered Angels forest green mist.

For the chipboards, I randomly applied some gesso and some Picket Fence rock candy. Then i dabbed lightly and randomly at some spots with Twinkling H2O's watercolors.

I always kept and used both positive and negative sides of the chipboards. The window frames around the photos is the negative side.

Here's the chipboards I used for this layout:

For my second project, I made a fairy book box and mini album. Loved fairies.

The clay fairy on cover of album is made from airdry clay and a mold. Gesso the whole box and spread texture paste over different stencils, layering them to build up the textures. Then I misted them with Tattered Angels mists and inked the edges with distress inks. I gesso and misted the negative alpha chipboard sheet then dab randomly with brown paint to make it look rusty. For the rest of the chipboards (frame, clock and 2 negative chipboard sheets), I rub the base color of bronze Viva Decor Inka Gold, dab brown paint and applied clear crackle rock candy. After they are dry, I apply a coat of gel medium to seal them in.

For the alpha chipboards by the side of box, I do the same as the negative alpha chipboard sheet.

For the inside base of box, I adhered a sheet of faux grass sheet (by Woodlands Scenic for miniatures).

The following pictures shows the pages of the mini album. I stamped and watercolored some images and added them in.

Here's the chipboards that I used for the fairy box and mini album:

Cogs (used 2 negatives shapes as frames) 

Capital alpha (use both positives and negative)

I hope you enjoy my sharing. Thanks for dropping by.
Do leave a comment to stand a chance to win a pack of chipboards. Have fun.
