Halloween Garden Fairies

concretenprimrosesOctober 9, 2009

I was inspired to make these by an article in Somerset studio. Mine aren't as witchlike and have flowers, cuz I'm a gardener! A couple years ago I hand colored a bunch of flower, moth and butterfly b&w pics, and then I color photocopied them, those are the flowers and the moth wings. I have copyright free books that I photocopied the ladies from and the other b&w elements. And of course, scrapbook paper.

I'm now imagining a paper fairy christmas tree! I have some very different ideas, which I'll post if I actually do them, lol.
