All things are possible... the land of Faerie!

I love this Dusty Attic Garden Fairy DA0278... last night I wanted to play with something but had no photos that were working for me, but she called to me to be created!
I have to admit, before I went to bed last night she looked like a dodgy fairy, but there must have been some magic in the air last night because this morning she was gorgeous... and so a canvas needed to be created!

The Canvas background is mixed media, using paper offcuts and tissue paper, all glued down and then tinted with paints and mists... then a little impasto to create texture, gesso and then more mists.  I have used Glimmermists as well as Starburst Stains on this one.  The Starburst Stains have that amazing glimmer!!

These Dusty Attic Leafy Stems #3 DA0580 above and Russian Alphabet DA0522 below were both painted white, dabbed with aqua paint, spritzed with Moonshadow Pirate's Plunder Gold and then coated with dimensional magic and sprinkled with mica flakes!

The gorgeous Dusty Attic Garden Fairy was painted white first and then with Golden Titan Buff for the skin tones, Golden Raw Umber for the hair {and left thick for texture}, and with Moonglow Glitz Spritz Desert Moon Horny Toad Teal {how's that for a name}, it gave her freckles!  Her wings were 'smooched' with Smooch {by Clearnsnap} Ocean Soul, Frosted Aqua & a little Habby Pink, and lastly were backed with Textiva Fusible Film.   She was then dressed in lovely soft muslin and draped in ZVA Bling!

The canvas was trimmed with some delicious Green Tara Lace L2898OW and was coloured with the same mists used over the canvas... love this lace!!

She will look beautiful on the wall in my new scrap room {if it ever gets finished}... she's for me, all mine!!

Thanks for visiting, take care and


  1. Exquisite Mistra!!! Maybe this canvas will motivate you to finish your scrap room so that she can go on display in there. Thanks for sharing xx

  2. I just love how you did her wings - beautiful!
