Book Nook - Fairy Forest House


  Hello everyone!


I was inspired again to create a new book nook. 
Maybe you remember the last one in steampunk style. 
Today to the theme Enchanted forest, a little dreamy fairy house in natural style. 




How to 


for the lighting I added an additional wall made of cardboard, 
which was covered with wood paper and finished with cutting dies (stars)
 side walls were covered with scrapbooking paper, 
stencilled with butterfly motifs and 
decorated with pieces of  Leafy Frame Set #2


in project centre is a 3D Birdhouse, which is fixed on a birch branch as a stand
a ladder leads to it, which was created from the Old Wooden Fence #3 
cut out the door from chipboard remnants
primed with black gesso and painted with acrylics 
furthermore I used various naturally dried materials 
to finish the house (branches, pine cones, lichen)

some details



used chipboards

Wonky Forest House


 Hello everyone!


 When I discovered the wonky house, I immediately thought it was not just for Halloween,

 it could also be a wonderful old enchanted wooden cabin in a magical forest. 

So I quickly glued the parts together, which wasn't that easy,

 but I wanted to create an old half-ruined romantic hut.





 raw construction


used Trefoil border shape as a base board

looked for a few matching pieces in Autumn & Woodland Shapes section. 

 Have you seen the new Skeleton, Dead Trees, Stumps & Branches?

Love them, perfect for an enchanted forest theme

and a lot of other fantasy themes!

You will certainly be able to discover them here more often in the near future. 😀

All parts were painted with acrylic paint, finally I added some suitable

 dried natural materials.

various side views



 Thanks for your visit!
 I hope you find inspiration!

Home Decor - Springtime in Forest


 Hello everyone!


Today a new springtime inspiration.
Used a half metal egg as base, before it was a original box of chocolates.
 that has been painted with light green chalk paint.
The background was completed with cutting dies (fern leaves).
A piece of floral foam was attached in the lower part of the egg, 
shapes were inserted and on the front  glued on.
MDF shapes were primed with white gesso and 
then painted with acrylic paints.
To compliment the natural look I used dried branches with lichen.

Happy Easter Greetings!
