Woven Bead Fairy

Day 216 – Woven Bead Fairy

Bead weaving and bead knitting are favourite techniques of mine to use. I came across bead knitting a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I then started experimenting with bead weaving as well as creating my own designs.

I decided to weave the gold and white seed beads onto some silver card using some clear fishing wire.

Folded Paint Fairy

Day 102 – Folded Paint Fairy

Gliter Peach 365 Day 102This is an old technique that I haven’t used since I was about three years old but I was reminded of it earlier this week and I couldn’t resist re-enacting this old favourite.

I simply folded a piece of paper in half, put thick gouache paint on one half of the page in a half-silhouette of a fairy with wings (and swirls), folded the page and when I opened the page up again the paint had spread onto the opposite side in a symmetrical way to show a full fairy-like image.
