Fairy ATC - Revealed!

Well, the other lovely ladies in the Student's Forum ATC Swap have already posted their ATCs so I figure it's now a good time to post mine...

Sorry for the size - but I wanted to make it extra large so you could see the detail properly.  I used an image from of this needle fairy and an actual needle to give a 3D feel.  I embossed the wings with Holographic Embossing powder and used Glossy Accents on the blue advertising lable.  I used a beading needle to backstitch the frame, adding seed beads at various intervals.

Hope you like it!

Heart Wreath

Hello Everyone,

This is the third piece that I will be submitting for Unit 1 of Certificate in Papercraft.  Please have a look and let me know what you think!

Foam mount board, covered using pages from an old Mills and Boon book and attached with a PVA, water and Acrylic Paint mix.  Can you see where I got up to on night one, before finishing off on night two with a mix that included more paint??  Ooops! :P

Lots of paper flowers, with glitter glue, brads and silk flowers attached - ready to be added to the heart base.  These were all individually cut out and took an age!!

A close up of the back of the wreath - to show how the words still show through the PVA / Acrylic mix.

 The completed wreath in full.  The banner says "Warm Hearts Welcome Here".

Enjoy!  xx
