Welcome to The Twiddleybitz Blog Hop #7's now my turn to show you a new Twiddleybitz project.......By now you have seen many creations from our FANTASTIC design team, so you should be getting loads of Twiddleybitz Inspiration.  If you have followed the hop from the beginning...... dont forget to leave a comment to enter the running for the RAK giveaways.....If you leave a comment after my could win my RAK....I will post the name of the winner on Monday.....and if you are the WINNER.......Get back to me with your email...and I will organise to post out your RAK......(Jump FOR JOY)   Cool....Ok !!!!

Well...this is my Floating frame called "A Fairy Teaparty".....made of course ...with Heaps of Twiddleybits .....
This is a list of the products used...and Instructions....

FRA001 1 x Floating Frame
BOR019 1 x Fairy Border
FAIR003 1 x Fairy Waving
MUSH001 1 x Tall Mushroom
MUSH003 1 x Row of Mushrooms
TEA001 1 x Teapot and Cups
WOR067 1 x Word Tea Party
WOR063 1 x Word Fairy Princess
BIR010 1 x Totally Tweet Oval Cage and Bird
FER02 1 x Fine Fern Leaves Assorted
FER03 1 x Fine Fern Leaves Large
ER004 1 x multi pack fern leaves
Assemble the Floating frame as per instructions enclosed with the product. Cover the front
and outside of the frame with paper. I have used Webster paper from the Christmas range.
Then paint the inside of the frame, both front and back of the acrylic. Only remove the adhesive
cover from the acrylic after the paint is dry.
Paint the mushrooms and apply Dimension magic, to create a high shine. Paint the Fairy border
and the single fairy in your chosen colours....and then apply glitter. Leave these all to dry.
To the back of the acrylic, add some texture by adding some burlap, a little lace and some
white netting. Print poem out onto some white paper making sure the printed part is only
about 3 x 3.5”. But leave extra paper top and bottom, of the print when trimming.
Add two sticks (collected from garden or park) and wrap top and bottom of the poem, then
glueing to make scroll. I also added some gauze and some beads to decorate.
Start glueing the mushrooms and the fairies, into place in the Frame. Glue some Webster
rosette ribbons (green) in and around the bottom of the frame to represent grass. Position the
poem scroll and glue to the back. Paint birdcage and bird (add a feather if you wish) for wing.
Slightly bend the birdcage so it is curved, instead of flat, and add some ribbon to the top, and
some German Scrap to the bars of the cage.
Paint all the fine fern leaves, and layer and glue behind the large mushroom. When dry, glue
on beads and some pearl sprays.(used in Wedding decoration). Paint the words, removing any
words not needed. Add glitter and allow to dry. Run the teapot and cups, through the cuttlebug
with an embossing folder to add some texture. Then paint and add some German Scrap, which
can also be painted, then inked to enhance texture.
Add some prima flowers to the bottom right hand corner. Paint and then glue, 2 x fern leaves from
multi pack,tucked under the flowers. Then position teapot and cups...glue down. Lastly, glue down
the words “Fairy Tea Party”...

  36. such a lovely creation. great work. twiddleybitz has so much great stuff for making OTP projects.

  37. CS Lewis once said "I sometimes wonder whether all pleasures are not substitutes for joy".

    Come on Clive - that was his first name, you see - surely seeking joy is part of the pleasure, how else can we justify our addiction to all things paper, sparkles and colour?

    One only needs to look at Carol's floating fairies to see joy personified :)
