Inchie and Fairy Projects

Hello Everyone who pops in today

Looks like it might be a nice day for Bank Holiday Monday so I expect our little seaside town will be packed full of people enjoying themselves.

Today is Every Inchie Monday day and the theme this week is SONG.


I chose the song Lady in Red by Chris de Burgh. I printed out the inchie then decoupaged the lady to give it more depth.


At Anything but a Card it is Fantasy and Fairies and I did enter an ATC already but thought I would make something else as well. This was because I found a brass stencil with a fairy--it had fallen down the back of my work bench a long time ago and had never been used.. Not sure what make it is as I expect I threw the packing away.

This is the stencil if you know who made it can you let me know please


I used a piece of paper for the backing from A Bumper Book of papers I bought a long time ago and the letters I have had a while as well. I used acrylic paint splodged onto plastic for the background then Paper Artsy Grunge Paste for the fairy. A few old peel offs to finish off the page.


Here it is in the scrapbook

Have a good day everyone

Love Chrissie x

  3. I still haven't done my song inchie for this week. I'm a bit behind with my craft work. I never would have thought of doing an actual song! But I promise not to steal your idea. I love your lady in red. I shall be singing it all day now. :)

  4. Me too, great idea to pick lady in red and well depicted - excellent choice - one of my favourites and I love your fairy work very delicate even though you've used grunge which should make it look more rustic but brings it to life - love it
