Hey guys, what is up with this weather!? 
wish it would make up its mind, i don't know what to wear  each morning lol, solution, ? stay in PJ's and get crafting :)

today i bring you my Design team piece for this weeks Delicious Doodles challenge, Anything but a Card, and i have to say the dt have done some smashing inspirational projects.

here's mine

I have used Wistful Fairy, and although she is coloured in the most beautiful soft soft pinks they don't show in the pic, (I'm seriously getting mad with myself over my photography skills lol)

this is actually a journal, it was a bright pink kind of alligator skin (faux of course) i covered the whole thing in Gesso, and then painted with palest pink acrylic, i chose a pretty paper ( one of my faves) printed it out and tore it to size to give the soft edges. i had added the branch in my graphics program so i printed it out twice and fussy cut some of the flowers, sticking them over the flat image to give dimension.
The beautiful fairy was coloured and cut  and then tiny tiny gems added to her crown and dress.
i have used flowers and a gem birdcage from my stash, and a few gem sprays. and a string of Aurora pearls along the spine edge of the front on the lace.

i added some lace down the spine
and the back is covered in the same paper as the front

i hope you like my wistful fairy journal

maybe ill fill it with lots of wistful dreamy ideas :)
