A Plaque for a Playroom, Fairies Welcome

I have another commissioned plaque to show you this week, this time it is for a playroom for a couple of little girls. I was contacted via my Handcrafted by Picto Facebook Page and after an exchange of ideas and a sketch sent for approval this is what I painted....

Playroom Plaque

 I love the colours, the brief was lilac, pink and yellow in pastel shades.

A Playroom Fairy

 I have put a shimmer of sparkle paint around the edges and on all the details.

Fairies Welcome

This Fairy Garden is filled with Butterflies and Dragonflies, Toadstools and Flowers.

I added a couple of snails, ladybirds, a caterpillar and a wiggly worm in the grass.

 This plaque is a tad larger than my usual size, about an inch all round and slightly thicker, I can also do any of my plaques on canvas or paper on request. This picture gives you an idea of the difference in size.

Just before I go I thought I'd show you a returning visitor to my feeders...

A Great Spotted Woodpecker at the feeder

I think I may paint one of these, don't you think the markings are lovely?

I'm off to join in with Lucy Blossom Crafts Blog Link Up

  1. Oh that is so pretty and I am sure the girls will just love it. Like your visitor they are so cheeky.

  2. Your plaque is really sweet, I love all the little details that you add to them.

  3. We get those Woodpeckers here too! The really big ones are at least a foot tall! And scary long beaks! The most of the Squirrels aren't stupid enough to mess with them! ;-D
    Sweet plaque!


I love reading your comments and I'll always try to get back to you :)
