I made this for Cackle in the Whimsical Shrine Swap. It was a mash up of a few of her themes: "Artist's Choice," "Insects," and "Botanical". The base I started with was a black solar-powered lantern from Target. For some odd reason, I like putting little characters in my bigger shrines, so the main focus of this one was going to be a fairy. She is wingless though, so I guess she is more of a pixie. Her body and flower petal skirt are polymer clay, her hair is made of mohair locks, her hat is felt, and her shirt is scraps of fabric. Other elements of the shrine include a felt and button moth inspired by Mister Finch, teeny mushrooms made based on a tutorial by Knickertwist (with polymer clay instead of paperclay though), a miniature nature shrine on the back based on an altered matchbox by Rackycoo, and several other items I saw on Cackle's Pinterest.







And the painting on the back is based on two photos of birds I that I took in my backyard


And here are some of the components before putting them inside:


The moth with its wings open didn't fit, so I actually just gave it to Cackle out of the shrine Tongue
