Finger Puppet Fairy

Day 191 – Finger Puppet Fairy

I created today’s fairy using some scraps of felt and silver material that I had saved from past projects “just in case” I ever had an idea that could use them up – today is that day!

I used complimentary coloured thread to sew the details using back stitch, black seed beads for her eyes and I have sewn around the edges with a simple running stitch. I couldn’t resist using silver for her wings!

Cling Film Art Fairy

Day 180 – Cling Film Art Fairy

I have only just come across this technique – essentially just put dollops of various colours of paint onto some cartridge paper, cover the page with cling film and rub the colours together to mix.

I chose to use acrylic paint so that when I removed the cling film, the texture would remain.

I then drew the fairy onto the dried paint and cut the silhouette using scissors.

Shredded Fairy

Day 118 – Shredded Fairy

When emptying the cross cut shredding machine, I couldn’t resist arranging the shredded paper into today’s fairy. I chose to use different coloured shreds for the wings and put it against the bare corkboard for an extra contrast.
