ello everybody! How are my fellow crafters doing? I am hoping this weekend you will find a little window in your “Back to School” craze to create! Yeap, nothing like a little craft therapy to heal all the shopping one has to endure getting the kiddos ready for another school year! : )
Guys these schools list are crazeee! Why a kid needs 5 boxes of Kleenex..10 sharpies, and the list goes on and on…LOL. I wonder what Mcgiver would have done with these items! Magic! LOL
But let’s talk about real magic. Well, not the David Copperfield’s, or what is the name of that dude that keeps putting himself in some hairy situations? Anyway, the magic I am talking is the one we do in our craft room! Yes you do magic in your craft room. Just like a fairy you gather your bits of paper, twinkle your coloring tools, sprinkle some glitter and ta-dah! A little something that will brighten someone’s day, make your friend smile or just make you happy because you created!
Today I would love to share with you sweet Gilli Fairy 2. Gilli Fairy 2 is just waiting for your magical touch!
I have to say that I had this project in mind since I came back from CHA in Chicago. Sometimes inspiration is waiting just around the corner. In this case it was so true! Inspiration was in a cute corner booth where I found one the most adorable collection of papers I have seen. The colors were just right! The yumiest sets with adorable matching elements! It was like magic…each little stand I looked at a project popped into my mind! Now talk about a line of paper being inspiring! I am sure you probably have seen around, because Authentique papers is the hottest line of paper around.
For this project I decided to create an easel card. I had this picture in mind to create a nice scene for Gilli fairy 2 with the blue pad from Authentique called Journey. Gilli was colored with copic markers and I used white pen to add a little texture to her wing. A fashionable fairy has to have some sparkly bling around, so I added some stickles to her wing.
The window where Gilli is sitting (pretty) was created using two different Martha Stewart punches. I combined the punched pieces together and adorned with flowers. Now check out these tiny pink flowers! These flowers were made using papers from the Splendid pad from Authentique. I told these papers are the bomb!! I punched (with Su punch) and glued together all the tiny flowers. To give a more dimensional feel to the tiny flowers I used McGill tools by shaping the petals (the quality of this paper is super amazing…it has a lot of body to it). I also added a tiny yellow pearl in the center of each flower (Liquid Pearls) for an extra touch. The bottom flowers are prima flowers..they are always so cute. All layer of papers were distressed using Distress inks from Ranger.
I am so glad I was able to sit down gather Gilli, my copics and these gorgeous papers and create a little something to share with you all ! Now it is your turn to do the same! Let you fairy hands make something pretty! I know you can do real magic!
