Fairy Caravan

Wow, I have been slaving away, painting and building a "fairy caravan" for Meadow's garden, and yes, I do name my fairies. ­čśť I removed her old weathered house and replaced it with this gypsy style caravan. You can watch a short slide show of what Meadow's old garden looked like here, personally, I think this new garden is much better!


I cut and glued on popsicle sticks to a carton... 

( I think I have the rounded tips to the popsicle sticks that I cut off lying around my craft room somewhere, everywhere ...those little suckers just fly off!! Wear eye protection when cutting them off, one flew off and hit me on the cheek and boy did that smart!! )

 ...and then painted it with a combination of Tattered Angels in Navy Blue and gesso through the April StencilGirl club stencil designed by Jennifer Evans. 
It's cool to note that gesso and Tattered Angel's navy blue produces an aqua colored blue...weird, but the proof is in the pudding...errrr...paint!

I love the back ♥ and the rhinestone wheels covered with Buckle Boutiques clear diamond sticker sheets. I mean fairies without bling is like ... boring!

A little detail from above...pretend you are a fairy flying over, go ahead...imagine...I won't tell :)

The pi├Ęce de r├ęsistance for me was the door and the steps, I love how it came out, especially those steps. I wasn't sure how I was going to make them but it came to me while I was in bed almost asleep, and you guessed it...out I came in my nightie to the craft room to make them! lol 
Have you done that? I know you have!

I added some other small items new to her garden like the pot of flowers I made and I had to buy new plants so I am trying out some miniature Pennywort and will see how they hold up.

and I purchased a small water fountain...

And the observant fairy might notice the string of solar powered lights surrounding her garden, I also have some tucked away inside the caravan and I can't wait to see how they look at night. I hope we get some sunshine today to power them up, we have had like 3 days of rain here, great for Sandee's garden but not so great for the fairy garden, lol
