I will apply the image to fabric paper and then seal it behind glass with silver solder. I have been wanting to make some pendants with this moon for some time now and this PPF has helped me get started. I will try to take some pictures of the work as I create the pendant. In the meantime I will start my other moon picture in a winter's landscape.
Until next time, Happy Painting.
Hope I have inspired you a little.

Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright loved Fairies , playing in the garden and just being typical little girls, in hindsight, not so average after all for they became world renown for their illusionary images of Fairies they had taken with their camera, confounding photographers and paranormal investigators around the globe.
Their pictures created a stir in Britain, causing many to prove their photographs to be ingenue and manipulated;to think they didn't even have photoshop then! Just as many wanted to disprove the pictures , many others wanted to believe including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes Detective Mysteries.
Being an adamant believer of the Spirit world, he was definitely convinced the pictures were truly not fakes and eventually went on to publish "The Coming of the Fairies" in 1922.
Recently I purchased a light crystal with a Fairy riding a dragonfly for my daughter M.
I suppose this bottle is one of those creations, only realizing now after it's evolution that somehow I was inspired by the crystal ;I'm glad I was!
I had some of this very very old gold architectural moulding that I had stashed away for special projects and have only used it for the second time so far , so happily I still have more to play with for future art projects.
I filled the bottle with ultra fine sea sand and added a sprinkling of German silver glass glitter shards and tiny whimsical gold stars.
I wanted to create a bottle not only for beauty but for a purpose, so I didn't solder the lid, besides it is too beautiful to cover up. Whether a keeper of dreams , notes of love, tokens of affection, tiny treasures, AliStar the dragonfly will be their keeper and watch over them in this whimsical vintage perfume bottle. I will be posting it on Etsy soon.
p.s. Kiki I just had to photograph my amethyst crystals with this Fairy Dust Bottle, it just seemed appropriate and so very whimsical. After seeing your pictures I was inspired but your photographs and crystals are way better! Thanks!
