FAIRY GARDEN PROGRESS!

THE FAIRY GARDEN EVOLVES!

After planting the initial plants, I waited awhile for them to grow a bit.  Then I added more.  I place pieces of wood where a house could go, to hold that place as the moss grew.  Today I added wetted sheet moss, or sphagnum moss.  I used it to cover up any signs of the tub and fern pots in the back. The sheet moss ties everything together.
I have a list of things yet to do, the creek, a path, a pool, a swing, a bench, etc--but at this point could not resist adding some houses and wee folk and taking a picture.  
At some point I will make a Fairy Garden Tutorial!



Today I also made the little bridge out of Aspen and painted it with acrylic stain. The addition of the sheet moss to cover the tub makes a huge difference in making it have a very convincing appearance!

I have also added a beautiful crystal that the Elf Prince is looking at !
