"Meet Me In The Garden" with Trudi Harrison

"Fairy House"

Hi Everyone,
Trudi back with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration. 
  I did have fun combining lots of 2Crafty elements in the creation of my mushroom fairy house.


The mushroom house was created with a recycled toilet roll cylinder (covered with paper)
 for the stalk and a pretty patterned paper canopy for the mushroom cap.
I trimmed a Brick Panel into smaller pieces and wrapped around the outer edge of the
 cylinder roll to add texture. Slightly curving the pieces helped with the sticking process.
 I used hot glue to attach in place and was not overly concerned with the glue lumps and
 bumps. They added a bit of extra texture when painted over.

The Skeleton Trees added structure for the roof embellishment.  Super cute Groovy Flowers
 were layered over the top with more leaves, flowers and little toadstools (these can be found
in some stores that carry an assortment of craft items or easily sourced online).  
The chipboard petal tips were curved upwards and a smaller groovy flower adhered over
the top to add a little dimension.
I cut out a window and a door and a Lacey Border was trimmed to create a wee window ledge.

Medium sized and smaller groovy flowers embellish the roof front and stalk sides.
An Arrow Word adds the perfect sentiment .

Smaller Bubble Clumps create fairy stepping stones and were placed
on the garden floor amongst the foliage.

All the chipboard elements have been painted white.  For a touch of sparkle, fine
Crystal Glitter was sprinkled over the top whilst the paint was still wet.

I have also added to my tag collection with another pretty instalment.
Continuing on with the garden theme, the Love Seat  is the feature piece -
I just adore the sweetness of this seat!

I trimmed a Twisted Vine Corner into 2 pieces and created a layered branch
for the fussy cut birdies to rest upon.

A small piece was also trimmed from a Fine Heart Border and tucked in with the
 Twisted Vine.  The fine hearts tied in beautifully with the hearts on the swing.
I also kept the chippie elements soft to coordinate. I white washed with white paint
mixed with water and a touch of Peony Color Spray. A touch of metallic gold was then
 lightly dabbed over some of the areas.
