Reneabouquets Ice Fairy Warrior 3D project (A tribute to Warriors)

Hi crafty Friends!

I am excited to share this project with you.  It's something different and it was a concept that changed a few times before it came to be what you see here.   But once I saw Renea's Ice Fairy I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

 Renea's Ice Fairy, and her amazing strong warrior look inspired me to make this into a tribute to everyday warriors.  The strong warrior inside us all that step's up to do the hard things that need to be done.    
I have made a banner using a part of a quote I found on the internet  the entire quote reads...
Fate says to the warrior "You cannot with stand the storm".
The warrior whispers back "I am the storm" 
-  - unknown quote - Jake Remington

 Renea also created Ice Fairy Butterflies!
I started with the trees. I twisted wire for several  Then I painted and glittered them with Reneabouquets Diamond  shard glitter.

 There is quilt batting and Spun glass angel hair inside for snow.  Also I glittered some Dusty Blue mulberry Roses. and put them inside. I sprinkled Silver Shard glitter on them.
This is Reneabouquets Haunted Castle Chipboard.  I painted it icy blue colors.  I ran thin beads of hot glue up the front for icy texture.  Then gave it a spritz with dylusions ink spray - white linen.  I backed the whole piece with velum so it looked like Icy windows. 

I accented with some acrylic Christmas icicles.  In this picture you can see some Reneabouquets Vintage snowflake beautiful board chipboard in there too.
The spiky white pieces at the front are cones I rolled from white paper.  They have been glittered too. 

 I lit it all up with a battery operated string of led fairy lights.  I created a space for the battery pack when I created the cardboard base.  I strategically placed some of the tiny fairy lights on the string under the acrylic icicles because they magically enhance the acrylic, it carrys the light right up through their centers.  Finished it all off with Reneabouquets Beautiful Bows Lace, Ivory Pleated Tulle and a garland of miniature acrylic icicles.

There she is.  The Ice Warrior.
A reminder to embrace the warrior within.
Determined, Strong, Powerful.   There's nothing she can't handle. 
Just like the coldest and fiercest winter storm. 
Stand with her and your world will fill with unexpected beauty.

I'm "In Love" with this piece.  I keep stopping to look at it every time I pass by it. 
Thank you so much for stopping by to look! ❤️
