The Princess and the Pea


I thought a dainty little tag would do this dainty Fairy Tale justice. One Powerful Hour challenged us this week to:


focus on something that all of us grew up loving, Fairy Tales.Create a piece that represents your favorite fairy tale, pick a character and pay homage to him or her, put together a collage of your favorite tales, the possibilities are endless. But as always, have fun!


And then Thank God It's Friday decided to go with an Open theme this week so I am submitting this piece to them as well.


I started by distressing an old book page with Tattered Rose ink. Next I stippled on the green dots using a stencil. They are suppose to resemble peas. On top of all that I gold embossed the crowns. The Princess Image is from Alphas stamps (she is actually a sleeping beauty image but I thought she worked well because of her coloring). The peas are from a Paula's Kit Club collage sheet. To finish it off I added various fibers and a pea charm.


Hope you enjoy I had fun creating it. And it took no time at all so my studio is almost spotless...
