Here is the companion page to the one I did yesterday of photos I took at Winterthur Museum and Mansion. This is the Fairie Cottage.  For my layout I used the sketch for the Creating Keepsakes contest and lots of sparkle! (and of course a few faeries!)

Here's the sketch:

and here is my Layout:

I am also going to enter this in Top Tip Tuesday Challenge #111 Flowers and a DT Call.  My tip is that you can also use Crafters Workshop (or other templates or stencils) with stickles.  I have always used them with inks, paints or other things you brush over but this time I used the small tipped bottles and just squirted into the openings.  Keep a Q-tip around in case it gets too thick or the stencil moves and gets some of the sparkle where you don't want it.  If you catch it right away you can't even tell where it was.  And then of course, leave it sit somewhere safely for a REALLY long time to dry completely.

I am going to try to get one more layout done...but it is getting late and I have an early morning with a lot of activity tomorrow as our church is having a huge block party for the community and I am over-seeing the childrens activities.    So I may or may not have something more to add tonite.  

I am so happy you stopped by and hope you will come again to see more from Winterthur or other bits and pieces of my life.


  1. Your faerie cottage layout is charming.
    And for what it's worth, I grew up not at all that far from Winterthur.
    Merry creating!

  2. Pretty creation, Thanks for Playing along with us this time at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, hugs Samantha :0)
