A work in progress for my girls.

My two daughters have believed in fairies from a very early age, but thier interest took a real turn for the unexpected the day they woke up to find a tiny wooden fairy door at the top of thier stairs and fairy dust leading into thier bedroom.

What ensued is a story for another time maybe, however since then they have had countless encounters and much fun with thier tiny visitors. So i am making them a little album to put the stories of thier adventures in, so they can look back in years to come and remember.

Very much a work in progress, but i'm pleased with the cover so far....




Lots of use of distress pad blending, with some gorgeous Prima flowers dotted around. All of the stamps are Lavinia stamps, my fave is the toadstool houses. :)

I will report back in as each part of the album gets done.

Hi Calv, thanks for visiting my blog and the good feedback. I've not come across yours before either. What a fab cheerful blog (just like this piece) and your inked fruit is just bonkers LOL. Have you tried dragonfruit? - that's an interesting shape!

Calv said...

Thanks Carol, i loved making this.

Cheers for the dragon fruit tip, i'll keep an eye out whilst on my hunt for a star fruit! I'm sure they are extinct!

This card is so stunning, you are clever!

Love your toadstool too :) and the fairy box is so imaginative, I bet your girls loved that to bits :D
I can just see one of your girls keeping her special things in it when she is older.
