I finished some fun Fairy size doors.
Mickey's "Mouse House" door is lightweight and rests on a small moss covered wood porch with rocks, the morning Disney Newspaper and a broom are resting near by.
Princess Fairy door brushed with pixie dust, has an acorn door knocker and is framed in flower covered moss and rests on a small moss covered wood porch with rocks.
Do you ever find that you just have so many ideas and not enough time to do them all??
My latest obsession is Fairy Houses and Villages. Gnomes are OK, but the delicateness of fairy gardens and twig furniture are magical! This week will feature fairy crafts.
When I was growing up in Los Angeles, my parents would take me to Disneyland two maybe three times a year. We had favorite rides (Space Mountain, Matterhorn, Small World, Big Thunder), but I think most of all we loved the DETAIL Walt put into the structures. We would often stroll Main Street admiring the Victorian town, New Orleans Square with all the lace and scroll work on the balconies, the iron statues surrounding the castle, these were what made it so special.
I remember I didn't really like riding the Storybook Village Canal Boats because they were so S L O W. I did like Casey Jr Railroad and its track was around and over the Village. I would love to look at all of the little cottages below.
I guess I have always liked miniatures and whimsy plus the fact that Tink is a fairy, made it all the more better, right?
It's a layering process.
First you paint the door then add more paint for dimension, flowers, moss, butterflies etc. Reveal coming soon....
If you're a lover of anything whimsical, magical and imaginative then you are more than likely a fan of Wonderland! The vivid colors, abstract themes and fun characters make it a unique place to explore.
Alice was my first dramatic role at age nine, so Wonderland has always been a special place for me.
These are some of the craft projects we made for a party at a community center, we had 20 kids (boys and girls) in attendance. The staff got into the fun and dressed up a little as well. 90 minutes of FUN!
Here the children feast on pizza and goodies from the candy buffet. Each were given a crazy hat to wear.
The Queen, Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Dum were all staff members.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
