    Fairy Lanterns & Giveaway (and Free Images)!

    Filed under Art Projects, Design Team, Giveaways, New Products, Newsletters, Sale


    How cute is that! Design Team Member Nichola Battilana has created a trio of fairy lanterns (using the new Black Tea Lanterns) that light up with LED Tea Lights! Those wings from her own Just Wings Collage Sheet look so beautiful backlit (see the small pics of the lanterns in the dark at the bottom of the photo at right). And more photos of her lanterns are in the Gallery.

    Plus, that very generous Nichola has designed a free Garden Faeries Mini Collage Sheet with those same imps that she used in her lanterns! See the Giveaway section (below) for how you can receive this free digital download!

    Some of the other Design Team Members have also used the new lanterns in their artwork — to much different effect! Check out that fabulous (and creepy) Doll Lantern by Rhonda Secrist Thomas! Here’s a bit of info from Rhonda: “I used alcohol inks on a piece of transparency, cut it to fit the windows, then just adhered a cut out image from the Dolls in the Attic Collage Sheet. I punched holes in eyes, well, I’m sure you knew that. Then I was trying to take the pic so the light shined through their little, creepy eyeballs.” Hee! You can see even more examples by Kira Nichols and Kristin Batsel (plus you’ll get to see a few more in coming weeks).

    And Teri Calia has made use of a lantern (and the little well in the removeable bottom cap that’s made to hold a Tea Light) to use one of the new Mini LED Lights to create a tiny tree with fairy lights! Click on either photo at right to see more details.

    Whew! Even more related artwork: Nichola also used one of the 40×30 Fairy Cameos (used on the top of 2 of her lanterns but not yet mentioned) to make this beautiful Fairy Cameo Brooch!

    So with all those lovely examples of fairy art by Nichola, I just had to put the Fairies Collage Sheet Section On Sale! (but only through THIS Saturday evening, June 29th). And don’t forget to check below for the Giveaway and for how to get a copy of Nichola’s mini collage sheet.
