Paper Scroll Fairy

Day 364 – Paper Scroll Fairy

My penultimate fairy!

I have used paper scrolls to create todays fairy – this was not as fiddly as I thought it was going to be.

I cut numerous strips of red paper and proceeded to fold, wrap and weave the paper around itself before sticking them onto some pink card using all purpose adhesive glue.

Fairy in a Jar

Day 355 – Fairy in a Jar

Created by cutting a silhouette of a fairy out of black paper and sticking it on the inside of the jar.

I then stuck one layer of white tissue paper using PVA glue, added some fairy dust and pearlescent paint before lighting a candle on the inside for the glow…

Conical Fairy

Day 306 – Conical Fairy

Created as an alternative Christmas Tree Topper, today’s fairy was made using some preprinted card. I drew on the wings with a glue stick and dotted some spots on the dress before sprinkling some glitter onto the glue. I stuck the dress together into a conical shape using double sided sticky tape.

Pencil Shaving Fairy

Day 253 – Pencil Shaving Fairy

For today’s fairy I drew an outline in pencil on some cartridge paper. Then I drew over the outline in glue before pouring some pencil shavings from my pencil sharpener onto the glue. I shook off the excess shavings.

As you can see, some of the coloured lead dust from inside the pencil sharpener stuck to the outline more than the shavings…

Tissue Art Fairy

Day 204 – Tissue Art Fairy

This is in the style of another tissue paper “painting” that I saw.

I drew the fairy in pencil on some white paper, painted each section loosely with watercolours before drawing the details in black fineliner when it had dried. I then proceeded to stick on torn shapes of tissue paper (in corresponding colours) to the background, her wings and clothing.
