Mama Fairy

I haven't made one of these for a while, so last night while I was watching TV I started cutting and ... wha ha... a Sweet Mama fairy. This one is a bit different that the first ones I made. I was inspired by some "Fairy girls" in this months Somerset Studio. Theirs are not on dowels or spools but their arm and legs are all paper like this. I just drew out a body , arms legs ect.. all as one piece on chipboard( for stability) and cut it out..then starting cutting the clothes, (and my mamas pretty face).

It's so overcast here today, I tried to step outside for all the natural light I could get.. so you get to see the bblllllllaaaaaaahhhhhh brown grass and trees in the background. ick sorry



Pretty soon, I'll have enough of these fairies to fill an entire shelf in my studio. (and that's okay with me) lol


*********************************************************
Where to the years go? 28 years ago today Dan and Vicki were married.


I just grabbed these pictures quick.. these were later at my parents house.
Nice feathered hair and HUGE classes... I know. Stop laughing.

Happy Anniversary Vicki! I too have glasses like that and they are tucked in a drawer someplace...hee hee. At least back THEN they weren't bifocals though! Oh well, the years slip by whether we want them to or not. Your Mama fairy is adorable.
Best wishes, Debbie Kaste

Hugs,

Hey!!! I'll have to show my dh who teases me mercilessly about my big googly glasses from the 1980s! This is proof that it was fashionable!

The challenge will soon be how I'll be able to fit bifocals on my teeny-tiny lenses!!

Happy belated anniversary!

(PS: any suggestions on which Glitter Mist to pick up first? I see that group of Glitter Mist bottles! I bet you can't choose one!)

I remember those glasses well.
I think I saw these pictures a long long time ago, but it was great seeing them again.

Happy belated anniversary!
