Faerie Garden - Glue Dots® CHA Project

Hi everyone! I wanted to take a minute and share a project
I made to Glue Dots® and it was selected to be shown in their CHA booth!

I started with a metal bird cage that I found at Hobby Lobby and 
added my Once Upon A Garden papers from Graphic 45
that I have been hoarding for a couple of years. 

**There are LOTS of photos**

 I fussy cut all the pieces from the papers and sealed them with Modge Podge for durability.

The cage is about 11" tall and 8" wide. I wound a wired thread through
the cage and added fussy cut flowers with Micro Glue Dots®. 
For the flowers, I added a a Micro Glue Dot® to the center of each, pressed a 
couple of seed beads in and sprinkled some extra fine glitter on top.


To create the pond in the front I painted the base blue, and topped that with clear acrylic
and a sprinkling with glitter. I used Micro Glue Dots® to add my water faeries
to the pond and added waves with white acrylic paint.

Aren't they cute! 

Here is a wide view of the garden. For the base inside I used floral foam,
cut it to size, and anchored it with XXL Glue Dots®. For the moss, I 
added Craft Glue Dots® randomly to the foam and just pressed it on. 
The other things pushed into the foam also help secure it.

For the flowers on stems I used pearl topped pins wrapped with green
washi tape. I used Craft Glue Dots to add two small flowers to
 the head of the pin. I added in some flower stamens for foliage. 

This Faerie has Ranger Crackle on her wings. Some of the others have Stickles on them.

I couldn't resist adding a couple of mini seashells to the pond, they are anchored with
a variety of Glue Dots®, For the fussy cut flowers stuck in the moss, I simply stuck more pearl pins through the center of the flowers straight into the moss.

I used a Tim Holtz die for the tree, painted it, inked it and glittered it.
This Faerie has stickles and extra glitter on her wings.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to look at my project.

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots design team.
