Here there be fairies...

This is another collaborative book I'm involved in.  This time we used some chipboard frame pages we obtained through Jenny Crossley

I changed tack a few times with these pages - they went from plain chipboard, to having scrunched tissue paper glued to them.  Then I painted them cream.  Then I changed my mind and used some of the paint techniques I learned from Michael DeMeng.  The chicken wire was always going to be included, and then I found some photos of when we last visited the William Rickets Sanctuary in the Dandenongs. 'Fairies!' I thought, and dug out some collage sheets from Lisa's Altered Art.  A quick trip to my local florist supply place, and I had some ivy and not long after that the pages were done!

Want to see a picture of the completed page?

And here's a close up of the words:

I have received some of the other girls' pages, and some of them a quite chunky (especially Liz's page LOL).  I look forward to tackling the challenging task of binding this baby! Of course, I'll blog about it when I'm done.


  1. Gail and I were picking Ro's brain's last night about binding this one too!

  2. Wow. That's amazing. I love the combination of the chicken wire with the ivy with the sweetness of the fairy.

  3. This is super cool! Love the chicken wire!!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me some love!
