Because Papier-Mache solves everything...

« on: November 06, 2012 04:15:14 PM »

My mother's friend and my sort-of aunt has had a hell of a rough year. I can't even imagine... so I decided I would make a charm-type bobble deal with a message on it. I started off with just thinking I was going to decopauge a wooden heart ornament but... as usual I can't leave well enough alone. I built up the heart   , then I started making a box within it, then doors... then a fairy... well... I'm proud of it and she loves it! And guess what? She is already making strides towards the better.

The heart "cabinet" itself is made of cardboard and papier mache. It was painted in acrylics and a gold metalic marker. The fairy is made of polimer clay, yarn for hair, and has articulated legs and feet.
.


The fairy is supposed to be a little folksy and imitative of cutesy inspirational stuff you see in stores. Because... usuallly I get a little weird with my crafts so I wanted to make sure she likes it. I messed up on her  face  a little when I wanted to add the smile and eye dots so I painted the whole face over... hopefully it doesn't look too bad. Lol

Just the cabinet delio itself. You can actually just shove the fairy's feet in there at an awkward angle if you want. Lol

Thanks for looking!
