Prairie Fairy Fun Fridays - A 3d Creation

Good Afternoon my Friends, Well TGIF, I've had a trying week with sick Grandchildren, unexpected visitors, my DH who is not very well, I've been running around like a chicken without it's head. On top of all that I had 5DT projects and 1 GDT project to complete for this week. I'm just so glad the week for me is over.

Anyway I digress!!! It's Friday and that means there is another wonderful challenge over at
Prairie Fairy Fun Fridays. The theme for this week is a 3d project. I know mine could be classed as altered art, which I suppose it is, but to me 3d means anything raised or jutting out of the project.

I bought three of these 10" x 10" canvases, they cost me £1.00 for the three of them, about 50 cents, I was going to hang them in the kitchen but they didn't match the colour scheme so I decided to use them to make myself some Christmas wall hangings, I love decorating my home at Christmas time.

The image I've used is Roberta's beautiful Sugarplum Fairies (available HERE) , aren't these girls adorable, I love how they are giving and receiving the sugarplum gift. Anyway I printed them out 4 times, used promarkers for the skin tones and the hair, and then two different contrasting papers to paper piece their dresses. The rest of the recipe is below this post.

You MUST go visit Fairy Fun Friday and see the absolutely beautiful projects my friends on the DT have created for you this week, they are astonishing and I am so proud to be working with these very talented ladies.

Thank you for popping in to visit, I do hope you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to reading your comments on my little creation.

Hi Suzi,

Your card is so pretty! The image you used is so precious and all the detail work you did is AMAZING! The glitter, the rhinestones, the pearls...PERFECT touches for a BEAUTIFUL Christmas card! Whoever gets this one is going to truly be blessed!

I definitely need to start buying some of those flowers...they are so pretty!

Thanks for joining us at Stamptacular! Hope you'll play along with us for some more challenge fun soon!


Skraptacular Designs said...

Suzi...UGH...I just realized that I wrote card instead of canvas/plaque in my last post to you. Of course, I didn't realize it until AFTER I pressed the send button! So sorry...seems like I am doing a lot of apologizing this morning! I really do and did read through your post and know that you bought these for about fifty cents and decided to decorate them to use during the Christmas holiday to hang in your home. What a fabulous idea!

Also, hope your DH and grandchildren are feeling better!
