Fairy Bookmark ~ Creative Embellishments June Challenge

It’s a new month…. so you know what that means …..a new challenge  is up on the Creative Embellishments blog! The challenge is to be inspired by at least 1 element from the picture below. The twist is to use your favorite mixed media technique. Please let us know what element you were inspired by and your favourite technique.
I love reading – especially fantasy novels – so this month’s inspiration photo was the impetus behind me creating this fairy bookmark! I’ve used one of the Tiny Fairies and one of the Simple Key Hole Plates to create the top of the bookmark. I’ve painted the chipboard pieces with Art Alchemy Metallique and Opal Magic Acrylic Paints and added some Stickles to the fairy’s wings for some fairy shimmer! I dabbed the light patina paint onto the gold keyhole and the painted lace outfit on the fairy so that they would look similar to the resin pieces I used for the bottom of the bookmark, unifying the look of the piece!  

I hope this little project inspires you to play along with the Creative Embellishments challenge this month! Be sure to follow the Challenge Rules so that you're eligible to win the $50 Gift Certificate to the Creative Embellishments store!
