Fairy Door

One of my little granddaughters, Autumn, asked me to make her a Fairy door with butterflies on it. 😁 So I set to work!!!

I removed the lock and hinges, then painted the door to resemble wood. Then on the arch section I added some areas of crackle paste, followed by modelling paste through a Sheena stencil. Can’t remember the name but it’s like a ledger page with leaves entwined. I also added more texture through an ivy stencil. No idea where I got that from!!!! Once dry I painted with PaperArtsy fresco paints and added some highlights with White Fire Treasure Gold. 

I made a video Here showing how I created the background for the panel behind the door. I stamped with a selection of Lavinia stamps which I’ll add links to at the bottom of this post. 

It’s for a little girl who loves sparkle......well who doesn’t!!!! So I added lots!!!!!

There’s even real fairy dust in little glass bottles. They must NEVER be opened for fear of losing some and the fairies magic will fade away! 

Here I stamped the Zen butterfly on shrink plastic and coloured with promarkers. They shrunk beautifully.

A new Challenge 

It’s that time of the month again! The first day of a new challenge over on the Lavinia page. The theme......Childhood Dreams. You can enter Here

Here I’ve used the beautiful Fairy Foragers and   the Fairy Hive. Both from the newest stamp release. I love these tiny fairies, so much detail in such small stamps and I just know they will be some of my go to stamps. And the Fairy Hive is adorable. Can you imagine finding one hanging from one of the trees in your garden. Just magical! 

I created the background then stamped with LavenderWillow Leaf, and one of the Whimsical Hares

I hope I can inspire you to create your own Childhood Dream. One person will be randomly selected to win £40 in vouchers to spend on the Lavinia website. 

GOOD LUCK! xxx

There’s lots of mica in the background which you can’t really pick up in the photo. I love this little Fairy Hive and the Fairy Foragers are beautiful.... so detailed. There are four in the set, two of which I’ve used here.
