Rusty Fairy



My friend Gillian has set the challenge of rust over at Mixed Media Monday. Getting something rusty in itself was a problem for me but after much searching.....

I was reading a fairy story for a little girl this week and with the sun shining and the garden so green I thought I would create my own little fairy garden. I've used a lot of elements including stamping and sewing (it was very distracting searching through my fabric stash!). I also love working with fresh flowers. The pictures don't really show it but there are some pretty blue glass beads at the top of the "maypoles".
She now has a little home at the bottom of the garden.

Wow, Seona - this is gorgeous! I bet more than paper fairies come to play in that, at the bottom of your garden! Diane

This just stirs the imagination. I love the movie "Fairy Tale" and this reminds me of the houses that they built in the movie. This is truly divine!

This is so sweet. Those flowers are gorgeous and I love the rust. Love how you have the fairy sitting in there. I bet this is so pretty at night with the candles lit.
