A Fairy Album

Hello Bloggers

This little book was started using Shades of Green Book Papers.  Then a set of the Fairy B&W Cut & Create Papers was put on the craft table & looked irresistible to play with. 

Originally they were there for a card but who can resist a mini book with no embellishing.

The result is a video of the pages:

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Other Notes:

The silver nail polish was in the sale bin at the chemist for $2.95 - I had tried all the other sparkles things I had & none of them worked the way I wanted. Will it work?? Yes, it did!! & what a great price.  Now I have to find a gold one.

The nail polish was used on vellum, cardstock, charms & paper flowers & leaves. Also on some of the Fairy Cut & Create images.  A very thin layer added the right amount of sparkle, while a thicker layer was needed on the charms

Never stop thinking outside the box.

The Fairy on the cover & the paper butterflies on other pages were molded & rounded over my thumb.  I then glued 1/2 a cotton ball underneath to keep them rounded.

Pins of Jewels were used as Fairy Wands

Bye for now
