We have all heard the tales of kissing a frog in hopes of meeting Prince Charming, right? Well, your Prince is here....sort of.
I began with cutting a circle out of a piece of heavy cardstock using the glass cloche as my template. This would ultimately be the base of my design that most everything gets glued on to.
Next, I created the toad stool for my little Prince to perch upon.
I did this using the cardboard toilet paper role, cut to a smaller height and diameter. I included a typical Bic pen in the image above for size reference. I then covered it with vintage text page. I made the top of the stool with a bunched up piece of paper molded into a "mushroom" shape also covered with vintage text paper.
Next, I worked on the base of the cloche. I covered the circle that I had previously cut out, with vintage music sheet. I then added two shades of green tulle to create the garden floor. I then began adding all the fun goodies. Some of this was from the one of a kind goodies from Altered Pages and some from my stash.
Next, I stamped my frog image using VersaMark clear ink and black embossing powder. I then colored him with my water brushes using a few shades of green and yellow Gelatos. I used red Gelato for the rose and my Silver nib Wink of Stella pen for his crown.
I then added some paper flowers and leaves along with some extra garden fun in the way of teeny tiny terra cotta pots, bunnies and a little river rock for the bunnies to rest on.
Add, the cloche over the top and there you have it. A fun size (top to bottom only about 6 or 7 inches) garden faerie Prince Charming.
I hope you enjoyed. Please let me know you were here by leaving a quick comment.
