I have been surrounded by fairies for the past week or so.
A couple of swaps had "fairie" themes and I welcomed the opportunity to go exploring in my stash of supplies for some inspiration....
When I opened a 1920's children' piano book with the song entitled "Where do fairies hide?" - I knew I had found my muse!
For Karla Nathan's "Fairie Book Swap" I had to create eight fairy pages....
Each was embellished to the max with vintage millinery.... appliques from a 1940's dress... a beautiful scroll stamp (embossed in gold) served as the background.
The adorable fairy image came from another vintage children's book....
isn't he sweet?
The back of each page was also finished with a fairy theme... alot simpler.... but still using vintage fairy images.
Everything got wrapped up carefully, with some pretty ribbons and more fairy touches....
..off it went to Karla!
She had an overwhelming response to her swap; with over 100 participants!
We will each receive our very own Fairy Book with 8 pages, plus Karla's unique cover. I can't wait to see everyone's come up with!
Another fun fairy-themed swap was for the BlissfullARTSwaps Group....
entitled a "Mermaid Fairy Wand"
Well, as much as I love wands AND fairies, there was no way I could pass this one up!
Lots of vintage touches, including the 1950's butterfly ribbon (which I LOVE and had been saving for a special project).
...and there you have it... my fairy world as of late.
p.s sharing my fairies with Beverly and her Pink Saturday!
