It started with a heavy hardwood box that came my way...
Often I am inspired by the Victorian era and their love of natural history and specimens.
I decided the box, stood up on its end, would make a lovely display case. I lined the inside with book pages - Using illustrations with an autumnal feel.
It reminded me of a taxidermy showcase, so with this inspiration, I added a cute toy fur mouse!
The little tree stump would become a perch for a fairy friend...
|Enter Jenny Wren...|
She is dressed in vintage fur, feathers, faux berries, toadstools and velvet leaves.
And her skirt is a c1930's fabric printed with blackberries.
She's my final fairy artwork coming with me to the fair on Saturday.
