Wonderland...a glittered up castle! :)



Wonderland

Happy 2012 my friends! :) May your new year be a wonderland of happiness with your dreams fulfilled!

I've been busy making wedding decorations for my cousin's wedding which is this Sunday...thank goodness....there's a light at the end of the tunnel! *LOL*



Today I'm sharing a 12 x 12 canvas layout that features a castle! So fun eh? *LOL*


It was previously a little girl's toy...which I spray painted. The colour turned out to be a light metallic green instead of a light aqua [Boohoo...I was cheated by Krylon!!!]....so glitter and bling to the rescue! Turns out that glitter can cover up a multitude of "sins"! *LOL*


I added some grey felt so that the castle wasn't so dazzling...*LOL*




I actually painted over an old canvas [because the idea struck me one insomniac night and I had no blank canvas], adhered some scrunched up wrapping tissue and misted it. Once that was dry, I covered the canvas with white tulle for a dreamy effect! :)


A little banner action...pearls, stickers, clear crystals, charm, mirror...


Trim, pearls, charm, handmade felt flowers....

Supplies: 12 x 12 canvas, toy castle, glitter, wrapping tissue, Maya mist, handmade felt flowers, embellishments from Gauche Alchemy.


The title of this piece was inspired by the "wonder" challenge at Bird is the Word.


*Edited*  This was the challenge winner at Bird is the word! :)

Oh my, what a transformation! I was originally thinking you made it out of tubes, but the toy had to be at least a little easier. So glittery, yet so dreamlike - against the canvas it looks wonderful.
