I have found the perfect way to use up LOADS of those little bits and pieces I have laying around. It's something that's been popular a few years back - something that passed me by completely until this week... captured fairies!
All you need is an empty (and clean) jar (or bottle if you're really clever and brave), a paper figure, loads of little bits and pieces, and a dash of imagination.
If in doubt, look up Artedar or Cynthialoowho on youtube (or just google "captured fairy").
So... here's "Rosa Alma", a wee little fairy captured in a jar...
The back of her jar (an empty candle jar)...
and a couple of charms I added...
I used scraps of ribbon, bits of feather, lace, paper and fabric flowers.... anything pink that I could lay my hands on :) If it wasn't pink, I 'dyed' it using cosmic shimmer and/or ink.
So much fun to do... a great project to immerse yourself in for a few hours inbetween other major projects, or when your mojo is waning.
My snippets drawer is dangerously low on bits and pieces now - woohoo!
So... off to the playground to post the piccie and have a play.
Don't forget to go visit Pixie's Crafty Workshop, and have a smooch around the playground for how other people use their little crafty snippets :)
