So I'm sort of obsessed with making fairy themed shadow boxes at the mo'. I've just used Dollarstore boxes and filled them with found treasures, vintage buttons, four leaf clovers, bones and whatever else happens to be laying about. My goal is to create 26 of these boxes... each with it's own fairy and background story. Here's what I've got so far:















This last one is my favourite... the little pixie is actually my grannie when she was a wee lass Smiley

WOW! Those are fantastic! They all are so unique with different "personalities". Do you know all of the people? Where'd you find those images?
Nice work!!

I think they are fabulous. Smiley  Especially the pink and orange one, and the dark garden, and the pixie one.  Beautiful.

I wish I had enough old photos of people I know to use, sadly, I don't have enough kicking around. Until recently, most of the images I've used are ones that people have posted on their sites or in groups specifically for artists to use in their art and collage work. Now, I've started buying old photos to use in my work... it doesn't cost very much to buy a batch of old photos no one wants and you come across some pretty interesting characters that way.

These are absolutely fantastic!

I love that you're going to make 26 of them, it's like a whole alphabet set.

My favorite is the man with the acron hat.
