There was a Fairy that Lived in a Shoe...

Hi everyone! For over a year now I have participated in Eileen Hull's monthly Art with Heart Challenge and this month's I will start as an Inspiration Team  Member for Eileen's Favorite Fall Things Challenge. Yes, you heard me right!!! I was asked to join and of course I said yes!!!


Since I love fairies I decided to create something fun and whimsical with an autumn twist using the 3D Shoe diecut which I cut from Black Mat Board.


I cut from patterned cardstock another shoe diecut and then adhered to the mat board surface, inked with brown chalk ink and then put together.


I laced and tied the shoe some brown twine. 


The image of the girl I found on the Land of Nod blog and the Butterfly Wings are from Altered Pages. I printed both out and then fussy cut and adhered the wings to the back of the girl. Next I stuffed some tissue down into the shoe and glued the girl to the tissue.


 I added dried moss and a mini pine cone around the feet of the little fairy to cover up the tissue paper. Also I adhered lace to the tongue of the shoe along with sequin and mini flat back pearls.


I tied off scalloped edge tulle with metallic floss and bunched up a some seam binding and added around the fairy. I cutting up a fall pick of berries and leaves and also added a couple of flowers and dew drops to finish off this adorable shoe. I can foresee me creating more of these shoes for different occasions.


Be sure to check out this month's Art with Heart Challenge and link up your Favorite Fall Things project for a chance to win the vintage camper diecut that is shown below.
If you have any questions please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
