2CC: Fairy House

Hi Everyone,

I have some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration to share with you.

  I did have fun combining lots of 2Crafty elements in the creation of my mushroom fairy house.

"Fairy House"

The mushroom house was created with a recycled toilet roll cylinder (covered with paper)
 for the stalk and a pretty patterned paper canopy for the mushroom cap.

I trimmed a Brick Panel into smaller pieces and wrapped around the outer edge of the
 cylinder roll to add texture. Slightly curving the pieces helped with the sticking process.
 I used hot glue to attach in place and was not overly concerned with the glue lumps and
 bumps. They added a bit of extra texture when painted over.

The Skeleton Trees added structure for the roof embellishment.  Super cute Groovy Flowers
 were layered over the top with more leaves, flowers and little toadstools (these can be found
in some stores that carry an assortment of craft items or easily sourced online).

The chipboard petal tips were curved upwards and a smaller groovy flower adhered over
the top to add a little dimension.

I also cut out a window and a door and a Lacey Border was trimmed to create a wee window ledge.

Medium sized and smaller groovy flowers embellish the roof front and stalk sides.
An Arrow Word adds the perfect sentiment.

Smaller Bubble Clumps create fairy stepping stones and were placed
on the garden floor amongst the foliage.

All the chipboard elements have been painted white.  For a touch of sparkle, fine
Crystal Glitter was sprinkled over the top whilst the paint was still wet.
