Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey has made a set of 3 fairy tale tins that are so richly colored and detailed… and to think they’re just made of blank tins, chipboard, paper and paint! Here’s a bit from Lora’s blog post before I point out some of my favorite bits. And note: there is another photo down in the Giveaway section.
The interesting thing about these ladies is that all the images are a bit ambiguous.
Lets take the one called ‘The Fairest’. She’s beautiful, but does she really look like a nice person?
And what about ‘Poison Apple’? Is she about to bite into that apple or give it to some unsuspecting princess?
There is always more than one way to tell a story. I’ll let you create your own!
It seems fitting we’re announcing new colors of Liquid Pearls today, as Lora uses Liquid Pearls all over her Fairy Tale Trio. I love how she decorated the chipboard frames, name plates, and filigree with dots and lines of Liquid Pearls. It beads up nicely and dries keeping its shape (like little round studs or half-pearls, in any size you’d like to make them). Plus, see the Giveaway below for a chance to wins lots of colors of Liquid Pearls!
I started out with three of the Blank Altoid Tins without the lids and used the Fairy Tale Frames Altoid Insert Set to create the outer frames around each tin. I painted the frames with pearlescent paints for richness and set them aside to apply after the background were in.
The backgrounds inside the tins are as follows:
Poison Apple is Forest Theatre Backdrops Collage Sheet
The Queen is Parrish Castles Collage Sheet
The Fairest is Grimm Covers #3 Collage Sheet
All the ladies are from the Fair Rosamund Collage Sheet
Hooray for the Fairy Tale Trio Giveaway!
