Hello little fairy!

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing my project for ColourArte.
It's a small canvas in a shadow frame for my daughter's bedroom.

ColourArte Products for this project:
Other Supplies:
  • Balsa wood
  • Stamp
  • Gesso
  • 2 Crafty Chipboard
  • flowers
  • Prima resin window
  • Wooden label
  • Gold thread
  • Sequins
  • Stapler and scissors
  • Shadow Frame
So, lets get started!

1. I cut with scissors the balsa wood in house shape and painted it with the blue shades Twinkling H2Os Watercolors and with the Warm Grey color the edges. I also made with my pencil a couple of carves to make the wood pore real.

 2. I stamped the dress of the fairy, painted it with the Twinkling H2Os Watercolors and cut it around with scissors. Then I took one of my daughter's photo, cut around the part of the head and glued it on the fairy's painted body.

3. As I wanted my fairy to hold something like the original on the stamp, I decided to make some hearts with rice paper. I painted them with the Twinkling H2Os Watercolors African JadePearl Gold and Vanilla Bean and used the stapler to give it more interest.

4. In order to alter the chipboard pieces I used all the Twinkling H2Os Watercolor shades plus the Radiant Rain spray Sunburst. I chose this spray because it has a really bright yellow and I really love it!

5. I glued all the embellishments on the balsa house and then I spread some of the three Primary Elements colors here and there. I really love how they blend together and I always use them as a final touch on my projects.

6. I glued the fairy with the hearts on the composition and the hole project on a white cardstock which I had gessoed previously. I placed in a IKEA shadow frame and made some doodling and splashes around the composition.

Here are some closeups...

...and the finished project. It's already hanging in my daughter's bedroom :)

With this project I'm entering the Paper Dvizhnik challenge. I really loved the color pallet of this beautiful moodboard!
