It's a Small World

Today’s project is to create fairy objects, which will be sent into a swap and eventually become part of an altered book.  I looked at many fairy images and decided on this by Phee McFaddell.  She has a fabulous webpage and some images available for download.  You may see some more of them in the days to come.

To create this element, I resized the image so that two images printed on one page.  I then used my Kimberly Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter to paint the image.  At this point, I used Ranger Glossy accents as an adhesive and embellished with Tulip Shake-On glitter.  At the base of the image I used iridescent flakes and again attached them with Glossy Accents.  The background of the image was made using a scallop circle punch of vellum as a mask and then I sponged using Tempting Turquoise ink by Stampin Up.
