Paper or Plastic?...Patterns that is,

I have been working on Willows doll,the garden faerie I promised her months ago.Her outfit is made out of fleece material.I had to make a pattern for her clothes so I thought I would share with you a tip.My sister in law "Rachael" years ago showed me that if you use a bag from the grocery store(the plastic kind).It is so much better because you can use it over and over because it won't tear like tissue paper.Plus you can pin it on to what you are working on and then remove it and cut out your material.The best part...NO COST and recycling!

Chunky ATC how to summon Fairies

The side with the Fairies on it,I started with the backround.I tore up a printed piece of paper andused a Martha Stewart black ink stamp around the edges.Then glued them back together and added a few stampoligy flower stamps.Then cut out the fairy image and set it on top using a thin spacer so it sticks out slightly and curled the wings a little.I painted the ferns on to both sides and added some lines of high light with a sharpie marker.Then I made the snal for on top out of sculp-epoxy,painted it.Then I added some little circle punch outs around the top.The back side I found a spell to summon fairies and made a page to print out with a font from my computer.Then I burnt the edges and curled em up to look like a old parchment scroll
