Hello there dear friends!! I’m sharing my very last Lili of the Valley project with you today.
I do hope you like it!
For my project, I purchased a plain, unpainted wooden box at my local craft store. After removing all of the hardware, I gave it a couple of coats of acrylic paint in a nice shade of lavender. After the paint dried, I cut pieces of the GORGEOUS Timeless Victorian papers to fit onto the box. Before adhering to the box though, I had lots of fun with embossing paste and stencils. Around the box, I added a string of pearls and Gesso. I also added touches of gold Rub and Buff to all the new hardware and some of the embossing paste textures.
Here is a close up of the sweet Fluttering from Lili of the Valley.
I stamped a couple of extra butterflies, colored them and cut them out. After using my stylus to shape the wings I glued them on to the image to pop them off the page a bit.
OK! So, what’s in the box, right?
It’s a fairy garden kit. Yep! A Fairy Garden in a Box kit! In case you’re wondering what the heck that is, I’ve included photos of my own fairy gardens. I wonder if Fluttering might be very happy in one of my fairy gardens.
I think it would be a sweet housewarming gift or a welcome to the neighborhood gift along with a few small plants to get started. Inside the box, there is a fairy sign, fairy sized bicycle, a bench, a very small birdhouse, a very tiny bunny in a leaf and ..a fairy, all individually wrapped in cellophane bags.
So, …what’s a fairy garden? I’ll share a few of mine with you.
A hanging basket Fairy Garden complete with miniature plants
and a small “lake” with a bunny floating by in a leaf and a fairy tending to the garden.
Two more fairy gardens in baskets on the fence.
In an 18 inch saucer dish, sitting on the table between to chairs. If you look closely, you might be able to see the tiny ladybug sitting next to the fairy on the arm of the chair and a sign that says, believe in magic.
This one is in a non working fountain on my patio.
I think these two fairies are flirting with each other.
And another hanging basket with a vintage travel trailer, bicycle and a tire swing and Adirondack chair. There is even a gnome sneaking in to play in the fairy garden.
A door to who knows where.
And the very last one is just two mushrooms in the moss growing in a teacup.
Lastly, I thought I would include a photo of one of my teacup birdfeeders too.
I found this easy to follow tutorial at CapsCreations
Hopefully, you are still with me! I know there was a bunch to read and I got a little chatty!! LOL!! If I didn’t cover something or you have any questions, please just ask. I would love to hear from you.
I want to say a HUGE welcome to Anne and Lili of the Valley for having me!! I adored every single second playing with and creating these projects with these gorgeous, fabulous products!! I know there will be a lot more LOTV projects in my future!!
