Ok... so my piece for this weeks Mixed Media Monday is an "Altered Art" fairy lamp.
My dear friend Carolyn Summers knows how I love fairies and she saw this little fairy at a recycle sale she knew it was perfect for me .... Thank you so much Carolyn. When she gave it to me we talked a little about how to fix a couple of little flaws and I said I would come up with something :)) Finally I did!
BeforeI wanted to use this in my bedroom so I started by using some wood stain on the dress and wings to make it fit into the color scheme I have there. Then I used alcohol ink on the wings and sealed it with a clear matt finish. I then tea dyed one of those shabby chic white rose sheets and tore little strips gluing them on to fashion a little dress for her. Some of the petals on the daffodils had been chipped so I covered them all with moss and added some tiny paper roses. I totally love her now and she looks so beautiful in my bedroom!!
