Hello Sprites :)

As my project says….Hello!!! I’ve sat on my hands as long as I possibly can before sharing my inspiration for the new Aurora Wings Facebook group challenge!!! Yes, it’s back, and we can hardly wait to see the beautiful creations you make with Aurora Wings images. The challenges will be ATG, with numerous chances to win some more of Mitzi’s images. Check out the guidelines in the challenge album 🙂 You can shop for the images at either the Digi Shop, or Mitzi’s Etsy Store; there may be a few “surprises” in the file section of the Facebook group, as well 😉

I needed a new door decoration for my apartment door…..I found the wooden letters at Michael’s….on sale, yet…..and decided to dress them up with Sprites frolicking through a garden 🙂 I used Morning Glory Sprite (Digi Shop exclusive ); Daffodil Sprite (Digi Shop exclusive ); Dahlia Sprite (Digi Shop exclusive ); Cosmos Sprite (Digi Shop exclusive ); and Butterfly Sprite with Fancy Wings (Digi Shop and Etsy), and colored them all up with Copics before fussy cutting each of them out.

I played around with the letter arrangement until I settled on the above……but then had to find a suitable “something” to mount them on. I went into the craft room pit and came up with a canvas that I hadn’t painted on yet, and cut it in half, and put it together end to end with glue and white duct tape. I glued the painted letters on, then arranged some forest moss and parts of a greenery swag (not on sale!) around them. I went with a natural burlap bow to top this piece off with. I liked the size and texture of it with the other elements. Finally, I attached all the Sprites into their private little garden. After taking numerous pictures…..it was a bit tough to get things right with something this size…..I hung it on my door… 🙂
