Fairy Door Hanger

Hi and thanks for stopping by. This challenge piece for ABAC at  is about fairies. The photo of the fairy was taken of a gorgeous metal woodland fairy I bought a couple of years ago. her wings are made from loosely woven twigs, so of course she had to have  woodland setting.

The door hanger is a piece of plywood which was painted with a thick layer of gesso and then sprayed with blue and red dylusions sprays. The large mushrooms, leaves and the snail (hand carved from rubber) were stamped onto some background papers which had been smooshed with Distress Inks, and then cut out. The wooden mushies and small leaves, were  plywood embellies from Prima....  love this range! I've also added a gum leaf chippie, real gumnuts and flowers diecut from glassine paper. All of the ply and chipboard embellies were painted with 3D stamping paint. A piece of seam binding helped to secure the gumnuts in place. My fairy door hangr is ready for use.

Thank you for stopping by and for leaving your encouraging comments.
Cheers, Di
