Latch Hook Fairy

Day 365 – Latch Hook Fairy

I wanted my final fairy of this challenge to be special. I revisited an old favourite pastime from my childhood – latch hook.

I spent ages trying to create my own pattern and struggled trying to figure out how many different coloured wools I would need before I eventually came across this website which was so easy to use and straightforward and helped turn a jpeg image into a proper pattern and advised me how many colours I would need/how many strands of each wool I would need etc. It was very helpful although I did tweak the design a bit to accentuate some details.

I must admit that I have been working on this for a bit more than just today but I did finish it today! I am very happy with how it turned out.

Mirrored Fairy

Day 357 – Mirrored Fairy

I drew today’s fairy using HB pencil onto an A5 envelope before cutting them out using scissors.

I intended to place one cut-out onto the wooden surface, but actually really liked them both together in a mirror image.

 

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…

Puzzle Fairy

Day 353 – Puzzle Fairy

I drew this scene in pencil on some paper before painting in watercolour and finishing some if the details in black fineliner.

I then cut it into puzzle-shaped pieces (which took a lot longer than I expected).
