Fairy Frozen Charlotte and Gnome Shadow Box for LeslieRahye's Fairyland Bloghop

Welcome to my stop on this very magical bloghop hosted by the Fabulous LeslieRahye!

I am all about green-crafting! For this project I have taken a cigar box lid and some other bits and baubles to transform it into a shadow box straight from Fairyland!

The Gnome is a vintage collage image from
and is nestled amongst money shred for grass.

The lovely detail of my Fairy Frozen Charlotte
is worn and weathered made of Creative Paperclay™.

To see how I made this frozen charlotte Fairy - please CLICK HERE to see how-to at the Amazing Mold Putty Blog.

  1. I love your aim to be a green crafter Susan. Your art piece today is pretty ,particulalry the little fairy girl. I am saying hi to you from ABAC and I am about to join your followers.

  2. I love your green shadow box with the Altered Pages gnome, but I particularly love your little frozen Charlotte fairy piece. She does look like she has been around for awhile, but she is absolutely beautiful. Love that worn look. TFS.
