Lavinia Challenge August - Anything but a Card

Hi, not sure what to do for this challenge but I had just finished a Finnabair inspired canvas so I thought that I would do something similar.

I have only used an 8 × 8 canvas, not too big.
I made a portrait of the lovely girl with flowers in her hair, made a frame from bits found in my craft room, glazed it with acetate and blinged it up with gilding waxes.

I coloured clear embossing paste with violet Brushos, and used it through a pretty stencil.

I made flowers and gave them a dash of violet. I used a few jewellery findings to go with the mini flowers and stamped 3 fairies on acetate. I also have a verse that starts with the words Fairy Dust and added it to a small bottle of glitter.

I hope you like it!
