A big warm welcome to my new followers, so glad you could join me on my arty adventures!
A little while a go I received a lovely email from Erin, at That Craft Place Challenge Blog asking me to guest design - I was so delighted at the offer. Sadly at the time when I was asked I couldn't do anything straight away due to all our work going on here with the house, but I'm here now and I've created a magical, moonlight canvas using their MDF pieces.
Oh, I adjust adore this door! It reminds me of those little fairy ones parents are making with their children for their gardens, and that gave me the October-magic inspiration for this piece. It took the Lindy's paints beautifully allowing the shimmer to really sparkle, and that was without gesso!!
I used a Tim Holtz pull-thing for the handle of the door. To create the glow behind the window, I cut a piece of card and sprayed with yellow Lindy's spray, cut and fit to the back of the window. Then filled in with Glossy Accents.
I accented with Glitter Glass in Gold Rush and Black, for extra magical texture!! :) And the greenery is fake moss, but it just felt like the perfect addition to this project.
I was a little nervous with how the moon was going to turn out, but I actually like the colours it got hit with, which was pure fluke when spraying the sky...
Tried to create a magical night sky with an air of mystery with the bats and glitter glass.
A roman numeral, for a little door number of the little fairy house, again covered in magical black glitter glass, touched with some of the gold.
The MDF mushrooms come with the door and add the perfect backdrop to the scenery.
I wanted this one as the focal point, so went in with brighter sprays. Magic colours for a magic mushroom ;) - probably the reason how stories of fairies came about lol!!
Hope you enjoyed today's post, see you soon!
