|Fairy Garden using embellishments from Flamingo Scraps!|
I started with a shallow terracotta bowl with a drainage hole; then laid in some rocks and added my plants. I used four types of Sedum -- but any type of low-growing, mounding moss or groundcover hardy in your area would do. I filled in the areas between the plants with larger black rocks.
With my garden ready, it was time to work on the Fairy part!
|I chose my embellishments and attached wooden skewers with E6000 adhesive.|
I chose pieces from Prima -- metal and resin, Melissa Frances resin, Wendy Vecchi resin, and a piece of Tim Holtz mirror paper. I used two of each piece and attached the wooden skewers between them, but once the garden was assembled, I realized that was really overkill! The fence pieces and the flamingos are from a "miniature flamingo garden" a friend gave me awhile back and were just toooo perfect!

Tim Holtz mirror paper and the pair of pink flamingos standing guard!
|I do believe a fairy left her bicycle leaning against |
the picket fence and ventured into the garden!
|A bunny peeks out from some foliage and |
there are birds at the birdbath and birdhouse!
