Once Upon a Springtime Icon

The rain may have stopped but it is still very, very cold not at all like June, we've got the heating on. Think it might be a indoor crafting weekend.

 I was asked to decorated this little wooden icon for a present. I started by painting the back, sides and edges with acrylic paint in a soft peach and left to dry. I cut three strips of paper from a Once upon a Springtime 8 x 8 Graphic 45 paper stack to fit the 3 panels. The pictures are just the right size. I added lots of Stickles to the fairies in crystal, tiara and waterfall, rubbed Viva Decor Inka Gold in Old Gold on all the edges and finished of with a small bling flourish cut in half . My customer loved it, hope her Mum does too.

Happy crafting Lynne
