paper dolls #46 - faerie collection

A new Paper Dolls challenge - the perfect opportunity to awaken from my blogger coma!

For the 'Spring Bling' challenge I really wanted faeries in a jar.  Some cyber hunting finally landed Once Upon a Springtime from graphic 45 in my craft room.  *love, love, love*


The pearl embellishments were a gift (thanks Renee!) - and just what I needed.  I trimmed them to fit the space and added an extra flourish for balance.

Yay! This shot caught the glass look of the jar.  I used shorter dimensionals on the faeries and hid taller ones behind the jar lid.  I slit the faeries' wings and folded them out slightly.


Recipe Box Label is a go-to favorite of mine... SO many sentiments fit the box!  I colored the pearls with a Copic (and snuck in another peek of those precious papers).

Hope you're enjoying your bloomin' spring!

xoxo,
Christy
