Check out my newest prop for fairy portraits - we MADE this!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to show you the newest prop I have for my fairy portrait events - and yes, we actually MADE this ourselves from supplies we found at home depot. It is a foot bridge that a little fairy can sit on.  I’ll be sharing images of the entire set soon.

I’m going to show you exactly how we did it in Fairy Portrait Magic, which is due to release in the next couple of weeks (hopefully sooner).  You can still reserve yours at the pre sale price for a limited time.  Click here to read more.

Here is the bridge (please note that it is sitting on a work table in the garage and will look much better when on the fairy set - I’ll be showing that soon)
