Fairy Dolls

I went a different way with the Heartfelt Journal die.  I made a shadow box with it.  You can create all sorts of compartments and cubby's to stuff little trinkets.  In my case I created a large opening to create my little story.


I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Reinker to colour y texture paste and applied to the cover of the cover with layering stencil Rose.  Tinting looks amazing on it.


I attached a strip of mat board on the outside and inside for the journal allowing for a 2" depth when done.  I cut strips of mat board to create the inside of the box.  I painted the box with black gesso including right over the pink roses.


I wasn't planning on painting the whole thing with black gesso... but paint happens!


I inked the chip quotes with Oxides and attached to the cover.


How awesome is the distress of these roses!


Some wallflower paper stash and envelope die on the inside.


The shadow box created is simple and pretty with paper dolls, grassy bits and a fence.


I cut and layered small duo butterfly wings for the pretty dolls.


The perfect set of wings to create fairy's!


I could have added so much more.  But sometimes you just need to step away and leave it.


The versatility of the die keeps on going!  A shadow box filled with fairy's, papers and secrets can be so much fun!  I have everything I used linked below.  Click and shop ;)
