Treetop Fairy Village & Mini Album

Hello everyone!
Here I am back with another new design- the Treetop Fairy Village.

The project features Graphic 45's Nature Sketchbook paper collection, and is about 17" tall on a 14" x 14" base.  Hidden inside the landscape is a mini album.

The trees have a PVC pipe structure, but otherwise the entire project is constructed from chipboard and paper.

There are three little houses in the village, and lots of flowers, Ladders provide access to all the levels and there is a bucket hoisting rig for bringing supplies up top. On the highest platform, there are lounge chairs for the fairies to relax and enjoy the view.

Winter Village - Completed Project

Hello everyone!

Back at the beginning of November I designed a village with 12 buildings and some stoops.  I called it the "Blank Canvas Village" because it was designed to showcase any desired theme, paper collection, or mixed media techniques.

I took my chipboard village and turned it into a winter village.  I chose this theme so I could play along with Linda Coughlin's Fifth Annual 12 Tags of Christmas.

The paper, techniques, embellishments etc. that I used on each of the 12 buildings were in some way inspired by the corresponding tag that Linda designed.

Winter Village - Building Twelve

Hello everyone!

Here I am with the last building in my Winter Village - Building #12, Tomorrow I will post a recap of the entire village.

I've had a super fun time playing along with Linda Coughlin's Fifth Annual 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style challenge.

It's been especially fun to see how her tags have inspired a variety of different projects from other crafters who have posted their responses to the challenge each week.

Winter Village - Building Eleven

Hello everyone!

I'm up to Building #11 in my 12 Buildings of Christmas project.  It's hard to believe there is only one more building to complete and then it will be time to do the finishing touches on my Winter Village.

The tags in Linda Coughlin's Fifth Annual 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style challenge have been a great inspiration and I think I am on track to meet the December 19th challenge deadline.
