A Pixie House Shrine

I altered this cute House Shrine Box for a colour challenge that I totally missed the deadline for.

I used to be terrified of colour but plowed through that wall. Now, I'm trying to consciously add texture to my pieces. This piece is chocked with textured elements. 


Here's the texture of the walls of this wee house. I've layered Cardstock Doily Set Intricates, painted them white and then added a smidge of colour with some ColourArte silks and H20's. I'm pretty smitten with the way it turned out.

For the roof I used sturdier chipboard pieces. There are some Feathery Flourishes (quickly becoming one of my favourite embellishments!) and Steampunk Fan blades. Again I painted them white and added some colour with ColourArte products.

The piece is finished off with some super cute Water Dew Drops from The Robins Nest, handmade ladybugs, a sweet winged vintage girlie and more. Here's the whole supply list kit-and-kaboodle.

  1. Nichola,

    Every time I see one of your Fairy Shrines I feel my heart lift and soar. . . I am always moved by shrines of any sort and the magic that emanates from your creations is truly special my dear. Thank you so much for all you share and create. . . and for the spaces you open that allow others the room to believe. . . you ARE magic!
