Megs Garden - "Summer Fairy Garden, Shadow Box"

For November, I have been busy creating up a storm for Megs Garden!  The theme is summer – the design team all allowing their own interpretation of each project completed.  As there are several projects, I will be posting them on different days to showcase each.
Firstly, is my “Summer Fairy Garden Shadowbox”...a group of fairies, all relaxing in various positions upon the mushrooms, after the heat of a summer’s day.   When I was a little girl, I used to look each morning, and late evening for the fairies in the garden... I was so convinced they were there ‘somewhere’ – you have to believe to see, apparently!!  AND, when their was a rainbow, they were sure to be about... I nearly 'spied' one that I am sure, especially in my Grandmothers garden, which was just the most beautiful garden I’d ever saw......

I have dressed up a 4 inch, chipboard shadowbox, by Scrapware.  I used a range of the beautifully designed papers by Megs Garden ( listed below), including 12 X 12, and also papers from the card-making series.  All the intricate details were carefully removed from each paper, and added to the shadow box to form a three dimensional aspect, using dimensional glue dots.  Megs Garden has some absolutely gorgeous transparencies; of course I used the “watercolour fairies” for this project. 

If you do not know a great deal about using transparencies in your projects, pop on over to Megs Garden Blog. Meg has written up some fantastic information on transparencies, and also shows some examples. Also, till the end of the year – Megs Garden is offering a free transparency to play with, in each order placed!!!
I further decorated the shadow box using a range of products: Cheery Lynn Designs dies, stickles, and distress stains.
