FAIRY'S Home In the Woods Paint Party Friday Week 7

This week's Paint Party Friday Week 7 submission is of a Fairy Door and Home done on


Shelf Mushroom ~ Artist Conk  in wood- burning ( Pyrography ) and paint.




Lost the hydro last night.....Boy are we spoilt!!! My daughter was bored and decided to have a bit of fun playing with wax....Encaustic wax could be her calling...lol. Anyway, needless to say I was unable to complete the painting but needed some advise so it all worked out in the end.




Candle in the Night ....Romantic and mesmerizing, a beauty all their own




A Spider Web Window for a Fairy's Home in the Wood






Steps not sure how to give them more depth......? I also was thinking of adding a few bricks here and there to give the walls to the home some character and dimension..... maybe a little kitty sleeping by the doorstep would be a cute touch. Any suggestions are welcomed.





Love Lives Here







A Tree Knot Home for a Little Feathered Friend



My take on a Birch Tree Trunk




Fairy's Home in the Woods

Until next week Happy Painting





Update.....completed Fairy Home   " WildWood "

Tammie said...

wonderful that you pointed out all the details. It is a wonderful piece, so charming.

Marlene said...

This is really a fun painting. Do you have to do anything special to get the surface ready to paint on or afterwards to preserve it?

Hybrid J said...

Loving the details of your work. So fun and creative. Well Done ! :)

Melisa said...

Wonderful! I love the tree branch overhanging the door and the little spiderweb window.

Pam Tucker said...

very creative work this week!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I LOVE this, it's so charming it made me smile! The way you had the tree wrap around your entire composition was a magical idea and the little birdie home was so sweet. I think adding a cat might be a cute touch, just be careful that it doesn't make things to busy! Oh and I love the little heart you snuck in- perfect!

Anne said...

I think this is lovely! So very detailed (I love that you showed us the details with close-up pictures of them!).
I don't think you'd need to add much to finish it. Looks wonderful as it is.

Magical. Love both the definite lines and the smudges. Each has their place.

EVA said...

Another excellent art shroom! So impressed by your creativity!

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
