Fairy Garden ATC Shrine by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello everyone, I do hope you are all keeping well?

Today I am sharing an ATC Shrine I made a few weeks ago as a
DT sample for That's Crafty's 6th October Hochanda Show

Here are those Fairy Garden ATC Shrine *How to do's..*

I first coated the outer frame of the Shrine with White Gesso then using the Dinky Bubbles Stencil I pushed light texture paste through it, when dry I scratched off some of the circles so I could apply a good amount of red paint around them. The circles have been tidied up around the edges using a white Posca pen. This will represent the cap of a Toadstool.

Onto the back board of the shrine I drew the stalk of the Toadstool adding a door and grasses for detail. Gluing the side pieces of the Shrine together I carefully repeat the scenery using a mixture of Shimmer and Multi Surface Paints continuing the theme. Mixing with the sparkler sprays has given a watercolour effect and added a touch of Fairy Magic.

Dots and detail was added when the shrine was glued together with greyboard toadstools bits and pieces coloured with posca pens then glued into place.

A double Toadstool and two Fairies have again been delicately coloured with Posca pens and glued into place with a thin coating of 3D Gel applied all over the Shrine to seal.

Apologies for the lack of process photos as I was unwell whilst making the last DT samples but hopefully the few photographs I do have you can understand how it was all created.

One thing you cannot see is that the detail inside the Shrine actually continues 
on the outside but I will leave that to your imagination.

Thank you for sharing your time
I look forward to sharing more of mine with you all
same time next Thursday.

Take Care and Stay Safe
