The Magical Life of Fairies Blog Hop


Photobucket


Welcome to our Blog Hop, the Magical Life of Fairies. What little girl doesn’t dream of carrying a fairy in her pocket? They are so tiny and beautiful. They have beautiful wings and long pretty hair. This is what comes to mind when I think of fairies. Today, we have a lot of talented women that want to show off their beautiful fairies, that they created. So please join the party and fly around with us!!!

Oh, silly me, I forgot to mention we have some wonderful Blog Candy!!!

If you came from Nancy's blog then you are flying where you are supposed to go.

I had thought of the idea of making a home decor project with fairy tale figures a fewP weeks ago and thought this waste perfect opportunity to try it out. I made a frame (#4) from the Fancy Frames Cricut cart. I also made the second layer from #2 to stabilize it a bit more. Then, I cut parts of the pixie from Dress Up Paper Dolls giving her a bit of sparkle on her dress with WOW chunky glitter that I won from Craft Warehouse and added a flower in her hair. Her wings are the shift layer of the first butterfly on the Rock Princess cart. The sunset in the background is from the Country Life cart. I used a VersaMarker to add highlights in her hair and a few shadows. I colored her cheeks with Stampin' Up pastels.

Now I must send you to the next stop on our hop. Please fly to the talented Amber at http://pixiperfectcreations.blogspot.com
Thanks for stopping by and remember to win the blog candy you must visit each blog and leave a comment.
