ColourArte Design Team Application

This is the project I did for my application to the Colour Arte design team.  I used several of their products - the Silks Acrylic Glazes, the Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists and the Twinkling H2O's. Make sure you check out their website and blog for more information on their great products!

For my project I made a Fairy Lantern.  I decided to call it that after one of my girlfriend's showed it to her daughter and her daughter's said "that looks like where a fairy would live."  I started with a Kaisercraft Beyond the Page lantern and then used several different ColourArte products to create the look I wanted.  Here is a video tutorial of the project:

I also wrote out step by step instructions on what I did to create the project.

So here are pictures of the final project. I had a lot of fun making it and I am really happy with the end result. Now to go find some fairies and see if they want to live in it!

I appreciate you taking the time to consider my application and I look forward to creating more with your products in the future.


  1. Hi; this is terrific. At first glance I did think 'metal'. It's great as is and you could stamp fairies, paint them with Twinks, doubleside them on toothpicks, fishing line, add painted rocks, moss and arrange inside with a tiny battery operated set of lights hiding the battery pack inside somewhere. I might have to try one of these. I wish you much Luck. Colourarte is the best products and Leslie is Super Special. You certainly have the qualities. You're an inspiration and that's certainly key!!! Love your project! XX'S,LYNDA in UTAH
