Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and been stopped by a work of art? The attention to detail and the vibrant colours have literally halted you in your tracks because the work draws your eyes to be admired? When the imaginative is brought to life we definitely need to stop and admire. It’s especially important during times of fear.
Libel Creations is one Instagram account you need to follow. If you love the enchanted world of fairies and adore all things miniature with a bit of greenery, these fairy houses will captivate your attention.
Aliena of Libel Creations is the designer behind each fairy house. When asked where inspiration came from to make these gorgeous fairy scenes, she says it’s been drawn from her childhood.
“As a young girl I had a lot of night terrors and my mother decided decorating my room with fairies would help. It did. I believe this is where my wild imagination began to really develop.”
Each fairy house can take several hours to create. The fairy reading nook took approximately 30 minutes to create. No time log has been kept when creating the fairy houses because when you’re having fun being creative, time is really no factor.
Aliena explained the most time-consuming part is deciding what materials to use.
“For example, if I should use jacaranda seed pods for steps, small twigs or wood slices. I often try them all then take it all apart and start again with the product I like best. If I include this in the time I’d say all of my pieces take several hours but I love creating and bringing out my inner child.”
The materials for each fairy house are gathered when going for walks with her son. They always come home with interesting sticks and gum nuts to use.
