WOYW? A !Diorama With Graphic 45 "An Eerie Tale"

It's a What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday and I finally have my Halloween/Fall project to share with you - a fairy tale diorama. Go to Julia's blog at to see what WOYW? Wednesdays are all about if you are not familiar with it and join in the fun!

It took me forever to finish this project as I kept changing/rejecting parts of it. To make my diorama I first painted the box with black acrylic paint, attached the cover, made a small base so it sat level and used Graphic 45's collection of papers called "An Eerie Tale" to decorate it. Love these papers! I fussy cut and layered to my heart's content - I love both - and finally it was complete.

Can you spot the mean little troll spying on the Prince and Princess?

And of course, all fairy tales have a wicked witch.

So now another finished project in my Halloween collection.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Wishing those who celebrate Thanksgiving a very happy day with lots of good food and relaxation!

What a fabulous idea to make that fairy tale scene in a box. It's magical!
I also went to your previous page and enjoyed photos of Jimbo with the beanybaby. Gorgeous!
Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
Sorry I'm a bit late but I always take my time and I love to look and read, click on links etc and that sometimes takes me all week!
Have a good one,

Hi Barbara,

WOW! I'm amazed. What a wonderful project; and to think it's in a box. Very cool. What type of glue do you use?

I've had my Thanksgiving meal so it was a perfect time to visit desks - either that or take a nap!!

Happy belated WOYWW

Hi Barbara! Quite an involved project! Glad for you that it is done. Looks like you had quite a few projects. I really like the paper, and didn't even realize it was Halloween, until you said so. I like your storage containers that you have your projects setting on.
Thanks for the peek today. #57
