Mixed Media – Gnome place like home

Have you ever had a dream project and you just didn’t have the time to do the project and then one day you got the time and the project brought great joy to your heart – so much so that you cannot stop!

Well I have a dream project – making fairy houses out of paper and forest items such as acorns, moss and sticks.  So a few of my fellow mixed media friends gave me a challenge – make a fairy house.  So away we went, like little gnomes on a mission, and we crafted and crafted and crafted and we are still crafting!

The nice thing about my friends is that we all are different – I paper craft and love little flowers and bows, Edie loves altered art and is the best altered artist I ever met and is amazing at that and Zoe well she loves meditating and yoga and she is a true blue artist…her free hand drawing is just beautiful as is her paintings! I love when we all go away and come up with something… and then we share and realize we are all different in the most awesome artist way!

Here’s one of my fairy houses – of course this is for indoor fairy gardens only!  Paper and weather do not get along!  This particular fairy house started out from an empty breadcrumb can!  The small flowers are hand made and have a small rhinestone in each one.  The charm at the top of the gnome home door is also hand made.

This was such a joy to do… and challenged my creativity quite a bit!  All I need now are a few gnomes to move in!  Stay tuned!
