The Candy Carnival Crown!

Hello all,
Here is a sneak peak at the crown I made for The Bunny Crown Swap I hosted in The Faerie Zine, This piece is called: The Candy Carnival and is for the wonderful Miss Susie Scott!

The theme of this swap was Spring, Bunnies, basically what I call: "Cupcake Chic", all who took part in the swap was assigned a partner, together each person made one crown/tiara and received one back.

The images in this piece are all hand painted with acrylic paints and pencil on bristol board. I choose yummy color tones in seafoam greens, pastel and bright pinks, yellows and vintage whites. I Hand punched flowers for luscious pink paper, added vintage crepe paper, new crepe paper, glitters and more.

I also cover the back of my crowns with paper or paint, so that it is not so bare, this gives it a more finished look!

Then when my piece was done, I headed for the sun, actually, I went outside and prepared it for a photo shoot, started on the porch and made my way to the garden and stone wall. I met up with some garden fairies on their way to tea, they shared some extra pixie dust with me, that they packed for their tea with the Queen Bee, down in Peapack, I thanked them for their kindness and away they went.

The Candy Carnival is packaged and on its way to Miss Susie. To see Susie's wonderful works you can stop by her blog at:
