Love & Fairies

DSC02365_edited-1

Hello, my friends!

Just a quick post today…

I’ve been working at the park all week (I’m a naturalist/docent/field trip lady)…

{My office!}

…and haven’t had much time to create--but snuck in just a little time this afternoon…

Another 3D Shadowbox card--the fabulous design of Vicki Chrisman—available through Crafty Secrets, here

{Sorry for all the shadowy Shadowbox photos…getting late in the day!}

All the images used are from Crafty Secrets’ “Love Mail” and “Altered Fairies” Creative Scraps…some of my very favorites…

Here’s a close-up of the first panel:

A sweet little letter-carrying cherub… “You make my heart smile”, he says…

The center panel:

A lovely flower fairy sits popped up on the outside of the frame here…peeking at the glittery roses within… “Love makes the world a beautiful place”…

And the last panel:

A pretty little vintage fairy declares, “I love you with all my heart and soul”…so sweet!

Gatherings of the softest pink muslin edged in pearl halves…pretty pink seam binding bows finish off each panel…

Glitter, lace, Platinum Stickles  & my new favorite “Crushed Shells” Glimmer Mist finish it off…I always just kinda get lost in these shadowboxes while I’m working on them…so much fun!

I hope your day is wonderful—and don’t forget to leave your heart open to fairies………………………………………..

See you soon with something new.
