Book Fairy - Through the Craftroom Door, Distress Oxides and Glossy Photo Paper

This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door blog challenge is Oddball Art!

Artist, Poet, Fruitarian............. Lizzy Love is a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! Easily lose yourself in her artistic realm of sometimes spooky but always delightfully cute, big eyed waifs and their animal friends. Lizzy’s whimsical, one of a kind dream world is easily recognizable by her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, her original creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness. Though she is completely enthralled by her Twinkling watercolors right now, Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, from drawing to painting, sewing and cutting, the end result always being the same; A gothic fantasy land painted in soft pastels and neon colors; filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes. Lizzy Love’s artwork includes original paintings both acrylic and watercolor, giclee fine art prints, art dolls, digital and rubber stamps of her characters , hand painted merchandise such as bags, tshirts and more..... limited only by her imagination the possibilities are endless. http://www.oddballartco.com/

My project features Astrid the Fairy, a bookworm fairy perched on her stack of books. I used glossy photo paper with Distress Oxides for the main image and chipboard decorated with Nuvo Mouse and Art Alchemy wax to make it into a wall hanging.
