Fairy magic in a box

Hey there Creatives! How about a little Fairy Magic today? One of my favorite things to do is layering and cutting pieces to make little scenes of heart – a little fairy magic! When I started thinking about drawing art for stamps I really wanted to make something that you could use in many ways, stamping and cutting out sections give you lots of creative ways to use these stamps. Today I and using Fairy magic and Fairy Garden background stamps. I am also using this shadow box from SA Crafters. Let’s take a closer look!

Inside the little shadow box are the little fairy, a bunny and lots of fairy magic going on in the fairy garden.
In this project, I imagine that little fairy thinking  “How did I get here and what do I need to do escape!! LOL
She is adorned with a beautiful floral dress (literally) I don’t know why but it is strangely satisfying to cut out all these little pieces and assemble them into a little layered scene. I used a lot of foam adhesives to add different depths of layers in the box. The floor of the box is covered with green magical glitter and there is a ton of glitter accents in different colors! (Which looks fabulous in person but a little hard to take the picture, the reflection makes it look a little blurry.) I used Brutus Monroe ink and embossing powder for the high shimmer of the fairy.

The shadow box and images were painted with Plaid FolkArt ® Acrylic Colors .
*Tip  If you don’t have the color you need on hand, you can mix your own by combining colors.
Watering down the paint makes it easier to paint very small areas and paint layers of to create depth.

used FolkArt ® Metallics – Royal Gold, 2 oz.and a little drywall tape as a stencil for those super fun polka dots!
It makes me happy looking at this little scene, and as I created this one I had some fun ideas for some others!
