More About the Girls

French Inspired Crafting!

I really wasn't going to post these until I taken more pictures of all the wonderful creations my mom & sister have been doing for our upcoming Holiday show in a couple of weeks. But, I always forget that Graphics Fairy always does 
 for projects done with their images!
So I decided to put these up real quick & link back to their site...Let me know what you think!

I discovered this adorable Fairy Girl on the Graphics Fairy site while looking for ancestor images for a different project & I just fell in LOVE with her!! This the first of many projects I am doing with her! {The sheet music behind her is also from GF!!} I made some wings from chipboard & covered them with mica flakes - courtesy of my 1st kit from The Gilded Girls Society! And instead of try to cut out the super thin fairy wand the girl was originally holding, I made my own out of a toothpick & a star from a Christmas pick from JoAnn's! The WISH letters are from my stash of Tattered Angels treasures given to me by a friend for my 40th! Don't ya just love it!! I am making 2 more as we "speak!!"
Here's another little hanging using the girl on a piece of chipboard from an album in the Michael's dollar bins! I covered the chipboard with a piece of Silk Dupioni, a vintage flower cut from a piece of GORGEOUS fabric & some ribbons for trimming the bottom. {The Dupioni; flower, pink & silver ribbons are all from The Gilded Girls Stash kit! WOWEE!!!} The flowers in her hand are from the wedding aisle at Michael's too.
Then I made another one, but she's holding a sign that says "I love you" in French (on one of those memo holders from Tim Holtz).

If these don't sell at our little show on the 19th (will post info this week), they will be going into the Etsy store ASAP!!
I think that's it for now! 
Be sure to check out all the awesome projects & images at  
when you have a chance!
