Frightening Fairies at HDH

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all keeping well. Signs of spring are in the air here in Scotland. Odd I know, not even the  middle of February and the Snowdrops are out, Daffodils are poking their heads up too. Hope we don't have a late snowstorm or hard frost to kill it all off.

Anyway, today sees the next theme go live at HDH for Macabre Monday. This time we are after your

Frightening Fairies

And I had just the one, drawn with this particular theme in mind a few weeks back. And last week I also released a background image that suits the theme too! So I popped the two together in an 8x6 shadow box frame.

Here we go with a load of photos. I took some last night, but wasn't sure if they'd be okay, so did some this morning too. The following are a concoction of the both light scenarios:

So. First I printed off my Dark Forest scene, and Shadow Faerie, both available in the Delicious Doodles AND Delicious Darkness store. I printed several of each and layered them up on foam pads to achieve some depth.

The frame was painted with black acrylic watered down a bit to allow the wood to show through. Then I painted loads of leaves, lichen, mossy bits and twigs and cones and stuck them round the frame.

Then it was a case of fitting the two together, and viola!

OMG!!!! You've totally outdone yourself! This is wonderfully magical in a fabulously creepy way. That fairy scares the knickers right off me and the woodland scene and fabulous embellies are beyond brilliant! Love, love, LOVE it!
