Spellbinders Explore Beyond Challenge! - Home Decor - Fairy Wand

Hi Folks :)

I am super excited about the
So much so,
 that I have been having great fun tinkering in my craft-room playing
around with Mojo and have made another creation!

This magical fairy wand is for the
Home Decor Category!

I am going to say ...
This piece was a labor of LOVE
But oh my! It was heaven to tinker with and put together!

I used 2 Spellbinders - The Floral Flourishes for the white glitter delicate leaves around the center of the flower. And all the flower layers are made from some fussy scoring and folding of Fleur De Lis Squares.

A close up of side 1-
I used glittered card from Bella! Glitz - White & Blush.
The piece is embellished with ribbon from my stash, Blossoms by
Vivaldi, handmade pins, wooden fibers & glitter for the center flower. 

A side view - Yes! Both sides of the wand have the
same layered flower feature!
Again ... Labor of LOVE!

Close up of side 2 -
I have certainly captured the image I had in my head for this piece, would even say it has turned out way more brilliant than I expected it to!  I love the pink and white color combo and that I still managed to catch the shabby beauty of it with some light TH Distress inking and the embellishments.
I don't think you want to know how long this took to put all together lol 

I will have to say I have seriously fallen in love with this piece!  The wand looks stunning as it it, but I have had a brainwave to make more and use as Christmas tree decorations - So I am challenging my self to next year, making one a month to have have a set of 12 by Christmas next year!   I would also love to play with the colors more and try a white & blue one, a brown & pink and a blue & brown!  MMM I can see the tree now with 3 of each of the color combo on it and I think it would look just magical!  Ohhh could you image a tree filled with just these! Oh My!  I need to stop thinking NOW lol!

I can say it has certainly been a hit with the girls too!  All morning they have constantly been walking in and out of my room to look at it as they oh and ah over it!  I have promised them if it doesn't make the finals and get posted off that they will get it for their dress up box so they can play with it.  Will certainly have to make another one as I don't think they will like sharing just the one though :$

Well, I am off to tinker again!

Hmm, have you tried waving it? It looks like it should magically transform any project into an intricate lacy vintage style.

I have a lot of trouble with that style, maybe I need a wand...
