A Unicorn & Fairy Doors

This week I've been painting some of my favorite things, Fairy Doors, what's not to love about bringing smiles and joy to those who receive my doors as gifts. These three were for one customer who wanted three Fairy Doors, two of them needed to be Tooth Fairy Doors, they are a great way to keep Fairy Tales and Magic alive.

A Trio of Fairy Doors

These are my Small Doors, they are approximately 2x3 inches, or if you prefer metric it about 5x8cm

A Fairy Door with Daisies

They have a Blue Dragonfly painted on them and can you see the little worm or caterpillar in the grass?

Purple Tooth Fairy Door

The Tooth Fairy Doors have a painted tooth hanging from the door handle.  There is also a snail and a ladybird on each door.

A Door for the Tooth Fairy

Keeping with the Whimsical and Magical Theme I painted a new canvas to put into my Folksy Shop
It's painted in acrylics and the mane is painted silver with a shimmer of sparkle, I've also painted a bit of sparkle on the butterflies and daisies. What little girl doesn't like a bit of sparkle. 

The White Unicorn

It's been a happy week and Friday was also the International Day of Happiness so with that in mind don't forget to pop over to the Happy Friday Link up over at the Planet Penny Blog

Spring ACEO's and a Kids Kabin Plaque

Spring is such a lovely time, the birds are chirping and the flowers are growing, some of my favorites are...


the lovely daffodil


and pretty bluebells


These flowers are miniature paintings generally called ACEO's, which is an acronym for Art Cards, Editions & Originals, sometimes known as ATC's Art Trading Cards. They are small works of art measuring 21/2 x 31/2 inches. They are great fun to do.

With the weather improving, it is also the time for children to play lots more in the garden. I was commissioned, via my Wow Thank You shop, to make this hand painted plaque for a children's garden shed. I love the jungle theme.
