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…

Pink Peg Fairy

Day 303 – Pink Peg Fairy

For today’s fairy, I drew the face and shoes onto a wooden peg using my black fineliner. Then I used a dark shade of pink tissue paper ruffled to create the top of the dress before adding a folded strip of the same colour as a belt and a matching headband.

I then cut wings from a pale pink tissue paper and stuck them on using double sided sticky tape.

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.
