Autumn fairy WIP

Hi Everybody!
Today I am sharing some autumn leaves I made, some of
which I used for my autumn fairy. The fairy isn't finished yet,
so this is a WIP. I will have her finished over the weekend.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday


For the leaves I painted, sprayed, dripped, glittered and stamped onto
an A3 sheet, which I cut into leaves using a Sizzix die.




Then I gave the individual leaves a coating of Deco Art
crackle glaze, and gave them some folds to make them
more dimensional:





I really like the effects I got.


We had some wonderful sunrise scenes this week:






Autumn is showing itself from its loveliest side:











Have a great day, take care
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  15. I love how you took us step by step showing how you made these leaves. You must have a LOT of dies. The leaves turned out great, the face is beautiful, and I look forward to the weekend reveal.

    Loved the ducks and the geese. I was surprised one horse had a winter or autumn "coat" on, while others didn't. Beautiful stills.

  21. Wow, your leaves are really stunning. At first, I thought they were real leaves, but the ones you made are even an improvement over what Mother Nature provides. Very clever!

    Great photos, too. I especially like the shots of the sky and the silhouette of the bird. (A crow, maybe?)

    Have a super weekend.
