Fairies and Flowers

Fairies and flowers are made for each other.  Beautiful flower gardens are made to attract fairies, attendance by birds, bees, and butterflies are just a happy side effect.

I put together this mini album with the idea of using this cute fairy from Unique Laser Designs.  I think she is so sweet!

Again I have paired this embellishments with a Graphic 45 collection.   I usually refer to G45 as "the big guns."  Does anyone else feel this way?  This time I used Secret Garden.  I thought the fairy would be perfect with that collection and I had enough supply to build a mini album.

I started my fairy just like one of my Unique Laser Designs design team members had.  (We are like crafty twins separated at birth! And her name is Lea.  Lee and Lea!  See her fairy here.)

I applied gesso to the fairy's wings and dress, but not on her "skin" as I wanted to leave the warmth of the wood to come through the paint.  I then painted the fairy with Lindy's Magicals.  I love these paints!

The other laser cuts I used are "Border Swirl D," which come in a pair.  These were painted with Distress Ink, then topped with Glossy Accents.  I would have added more chipboard, but I had to be able to close the album.

Now let's see if you can watch the whole album!

Thanks for stopping by!
