The challenge this time for my Art Thing group. Everyone has to create a piece using the agreed upon materials. At first I thought of painting animals on rocks as I had done many years ago. But then decided Fairy Houses, would be fun. Once again I was right! Made the round one using pieces of bark salvaged from the wood pile. Besides the dragon on the roof, I made a couple of little fairy faces peaking out of the windows. The tall house is made of aspen slabs, left over from a friend's furniture making projects. Had a fit trying to make a roof, until I made it flat, filled in with spanish moss & trimmed with dried flowers from a yucca plant. A steampunk owl sits on top. Because of the beautiful gnarls in the wood, I put the door on the side instead of the front. Used sliced black walnut shells to decorate. The back is flat so it can be hung on the wall. Thinking of making another house using stones. Since it snowed again here today I need to be inside anyway....
