Girls, Giggles, Glitter and Glue Spring Blog Hop




















Welcome all Blog Hoppers!!!!

There is nothing like some beautiful new Spring artwork to get your crafting mojo going. I hope you are having fun visiting all the talented ladies of 4G. They are my inspiration every day. You never know what beautiful creation they will come up with next. You have probably already made yourself familiar with the rules, but just in case I am the first stop on your travels I have posted them here for you as well. Remember to check in at the end of the hop Girls, Giggles, Glitter and Glue Event Page.
















































Here is my Spring Project! I have been working on this forever it seems. I used cold porcelain to make the roses, leaves and tree stump. The little fairy (who was very camera shy it seems, is a digital download from Gecko Galz. The mirror base and glass are from my favourite spot....Dollar Tree. Enjoy!



I tried this colour technique so you could see the little fairy peeking from behind the branch. She is just the cutest little thing with her sparkly wings and arms filled with pink roses. 


I used the cold porcelain recipe that I shared a few weeks ago to create the decorative top and the base of the tree. I loved how I could use my plastic greenery and wrap the clay around it to create the tree. Not so easy with oven bake clay. By adding Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to the dried pieces I was able to achieve a finish very close to a kiln fired piece.

This piece was time consuming only because I worked in small steps allowing the clay to dry before moving on.  I used the Craft Medley Premium Glue from the Dollar store to hold the clay to the base and the glass. It is secure enough to lift it using the leaves.
