Wicked Wednesday ATC Fairy House Challenge
I love the whole idea of fairies and elves, don't you? I lived across the street from my grade school and the property included a little woodsy area beyond the playground. I'd peek in the hollows and under the leaves, imagining the magical folks that lived there. I was especially fond of jack-in-the-pulpit plants and even dug some up to replant in my secret garden behind my playhouse, knowing for sure that someone special was bound to move in. I was very excited that the Wicked Wednesday Challenge this week was Fairy Houses. I couldn't find a jack-in-the-pulpit digi, so I used the next best thing. Seems mushrooms are all the rage in the fairy community and this adorable one is the Fairy Fae House from Tiddly Inks. It's colored with Copics and gel pens and popped atop sweet DP from Heidi Grace. I've only recently begun to eat mushrooms, never liking them as a child. Wonder if that's because I didn't want to leave anyone homeless back then. LOL The little fairy on the flower is a rub-on, also from Heidi Grace and I've used adhesive epoxy letters to call it home.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut that is. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 36 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
