Welcome to August 1. Time for a new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. The theme is always the same - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow. Hope you can join in the fun, you have about a month to get a project designed and submitted. We'd all love to see your creation.
Well,summer is about half over. So since summer will be coming to an end soon, I decided to use a cute fairy image from Cute As A Button. It makes me think of a pond that I used to visit when I was in my early teens. It was close to my house, I would walk down to it. I would see turtle heads bobbing up and down sunning themselves floating so close to the top of the water, I could see the shell of those turtles. Also the dragonflies would fly by and skim the water's surface. I can just envision this fairy floating by as well.
This fairy is named Liliana Fairy and I thought you'd enjoy seeing her. She is from the Cute As A Button collection of digital images. And they are the sponsor at Craft-Dee BowZ this month. Stop by their shop and check out all their great selection of digi's.
I used colored pencils and gamsol to color the image. Next I added some glitter to give the water some additional interest. And those flower embellishments were the perfect accent to the oval.
The squares are from a Punch Around the Page punch. I punched a straight line of them and then trimmed them into single squares.
My bow, it's made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool and I used some sheer ribbon, my favorite type. Makes a great bow and shapes really well.
Here is the tools that makes bow making easy for me.
