Garden Fairy Layout by Nancy

Nancy is with us today to share a loving tribute to her sweet kitty Willie who recently passed away:

Hi everyone, it's Nancy here today.  I'm still missing my kitty Willie so much, and I like to imagine that perhaps he flew to heaven on the wings of a fairy.  This layout was created from my heart.  I hope you like it. I have used two of the small fairies from Gina's Designs, and one of the medium fairies as well as one of the large shuttered windows.

The fairies were painted with clear gesso followed by Twinkling H20's in a gold tone, then dotted with some glossy accents.  I covered the wings with glossy accents then gold glass microbeads.  The steampunk doily is new at Gina's Designs and should be in the shop soon.
I used some Prima resin embellishments to represent the rainbow bridge, and more doilies.  I used a damask stencil on the background paper and also dotted it with glossy accents.
The bricks are also new at Gina's Designs.  The window was dry brushed with gesso and acrylic paint in pastel colors followed by Grecian Gold rub n buff.

Supplies Used:
Steampunk Doilies

Garden Fairy ATC's by Marjolaine

Hello  friends, Marjolaine here! I'm posting today to show you these amazing little garden fairies from Gina's Designs. They come in three sizes and are so much fun to work with!

For my background I used Prima papers that had fairies on them so I thought they were perfect. I added some idea-o-logy decorative tape and some paint and I was done! I used Gelato on my fairies along with a background stamp and a touch of Stickles on their wings.

I'm dreaming up a canvas to use my larger fairies on!

Christmas in July Mini Albums by Kathi

Kathi here to share two mini albums I made for Christmas in July! I  used several sets from Gina's store,  Micro Mini Snow Globe & Christmas set & the Winter set.  These albums were fun to create.

White gesso was first used on all the pieces then each one was then painted with 

different  colored distress paint.  Distress ink was used on the edge of "Let it snow".

Photo's can be placed under the different shapes placed on the shaped photo mats.

 Flat back pearls are used as the eyes and glossy accents used to make them shine.

White gesso was used on the tips of the tree. The tree is available in Gina's store. Tree #1

Flat back pearls used as the shoe buttons. A photo can be placed  under the ice skates.

 White gesso was used as know on the trees, again a photo can be placed on the photo mat. 

 Photo mat is under the snowman, White gesso was used to make the 

snowman appear fluffy. White pearl flat back beads to line the snowman's hat.

Mittens where painted blue, white gesso for the cuff of the mittens with 

3 red hearts. Again a photo will slip behind the mittens.

On the photo mat Christmas light bulbs hang from the top with a street lamp 

to the right. A photo will slip under the bulbs & the lamp.

 Back page.

 It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Kathi used flat back pearls on the top of of the base of the snow glob base. 3 snow flakes with colored crystal in the center of each snowflake.

 Beautiful flat lace with flat back pearls

 Kathi's used on the rest of the 5 snow globs she used shaker boxes as the photo mat. under each shaker box a photo can be placed. 3 snowflakes on the left with crystals in the center. 

a place was left on the lower right for a name tag of the photo.
