I just love springtime, because it symbolizes the magical time of year where everything seems to start over again. I love this particular collection from Graphic 45. It has the magic of Spring, fairies and the secret place where the fairies live.
This is my designer challenge submission using Graphic 45’s Once Upon a Springtime Collection.
The front is a snow globe, with a fairy diorama. I adhered the clock glass face to the back of the snow glove and inserted it through the inside of the clock. I adhered paper to the inside back of the clock and created a third dimensional layer to the diorama.
The large Eclectic Elements Tag was covered with the Once Upon a Springtime cover sheet and I fussy cut several areas to add dimension and layers. You will see glittered effects on wings and flowers… for that magical touch.
The outside of the clock, I wanted to look like forest moss….so I covered the clock in black gesso. I added Finnabairs Rust Effects to the gesso and kept adding colors until I got the moss ….just right. I hope that you enjoy, thank you for stopping by to take a look!
