“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Fairy matchbox

Wow did time get away from me! March is here and is it windy today!
Been working on lot's of cool projects lately & I can't wait to share it with you.
For now, I'd like to show you a matchbox I created recently for another swap.
Ive never really worked on a matchbox and I was a little intimidated to start ...but I figured, if I can turn it into a little person somehow, then I'll be good to go. So of course I decided on a fairy:)

This is the open matchbox filled with teeny goodies..

Then she was put into another box..

The inside lid...

I tried to get it to look like an apothecary, filled with bottles...

OK... I'm off to finish a project...I will be back here very soon with a magical give away!!!
I hope every one has a wonderful week, Happy March!

The images of the fairy and the apothecary bottles are from Lisa Kettell's book Altered Art Circus:)

  5. This is so nice. I love everything fairy ... and I really love creations that are "little". I find they are more difficult to do but love the teeny tiny art.

    Happiness to all.
