Sewing Fairies

     I almost forgot to post this project.  I am really proud of the way it turned out.  I love working with the new product's I have found at Gina Design's.  The spool and the fairies both came from her shop.

     This spool has loads of details so I'm going to have to put up several pictures of it.  I have used homemade flowers, a banner created with washi tape, pearls, and skewers, a dress form created from honeycomb paper, bits and pieces of a traveling sewing kit, stencils and modeling cream, chipboard bits and pieces and I cannot think of what all else I have included.

Here are some closeups of the top

and here are some closeups of the bottom

 I forgot to take pics of the other size and right now it's on display at For Keepsakes as a demo for Gina Designs products.  I cannot wait to bring this back home.

By the way, don't you just love that paper, I think I'm going to have to get some more just because.  Oh and the measuring tape is actually washi tape that I backed with the same tape.  Can you see the stenciled wire on the bottom of the spool?  It's also on the top.  I used the same pearlized modeling paste on the chipboard fairies and then added some paint and distress ink for color.

My supply list is just to numerous to list on this one but if you have a question just ask, I'll be happy to answer.
