September challenge - Altered eclectics

Morning all,

I can't believe it's September already!

But here it is, and I have my design team project for Altered Eclectics to show you.

I went with something completely different... a fairy door!

And I love it when hobbies collide! Before I started cardmaking, and from there doing other projects, I used to paint miniatures (Games Workshop mostly). As part of making the miniatures look nice, I used to use green flock on the bases to simulate grass. As you can see, I have used some of that flock (which is over 15 years old!!) here to ground my fairy door on a patch of grass.

This was rather fun to do. must keep my eyes open for a fairy to put inside now.

I hope you'll come and play along with us at Altered Eclectics!

Back in two with another post!
