I wanted this fairy to be a center piece of my spiritual altar/meditation space and a reminder that love - the giving of love and receiving of love is the main ingredient to being happy. As the saying goes - Do All Things with Love. So I started by painting her Green (color of heart chakra) with Veridian Fluid Acrylic from DecoArt. I then decorated her body and wings with a scrap piece from a Gelli Print and her main body (the heart) with a piece I created using stencils and my Pan Pastels. Again all the colors of my chosen papers were predominately green.
I also purchased from Retro Art Cafe the collage heads and I chose one that was rather Angelic Looking. To the Wings I then added some English Red Oxide DecoArt Antiquing Cream. All around my edges and sides I used the Iced Expresso Metallic Lustre also from DecoArt.
A Black Posca Paint Pen added some outlines and definition to her and to finish the body I embellished further with a heart covered with Red Kindy Glitz, Words cut from a Postcard, a strip of small clear gemstones and a red rose.
The finishing touch was to add a small house image (cut from a scrap piece of Echo Park Paper) to the shrine cavity and embed it under a glass like finish using DecoArt Liquid Glass.
