The All Things Altered Blog Hop is Here!

Oh my goodness! I'm so excited about this blog hop and so excited to finally show you what I've made. You should have come to this blog from Lyneen Jesse's blog. You should have started from the Sakura Hobby Craft Blog. I've been thinking about cooler weather lately and also about the different Seasons of the year. I am so ready for Fall that I decided to make a Fall Fairy! Here's what I started with:

I used this wonderful paper mache' torso on stand, Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer, Terri Sproul Color Enhancer and Terri Sproul Copper Penny Mixer. I mixed all of the previous together and painted my torso to start with. It turned out an awesome color:
My next thought was to use some silk Fall leaves as the dress:



            


I also made these beautiful Fall Fairy Wings too! Terri Sproul has a wonderful tutorial on YouTube, showing you how to make them. I'm afraid this post would go on too long if I explained it all right now. Once the Fall Fairy Wings were finished and attached to the torso I then made a dress for the Fairy with the leaves:
          

Wasn't this Fairy just looking good? I decided to use a Sunflower for her head and I molded a Paperclay face which I attached. I used Crystal Lacquer and Shimmer Red and painted the petals with it. I mixed up some of the Extra Fine Glitter with the Crystal Lacquer and painted it on the leaves of her dress. The face was sealed with the Crystal Lacquer. Here are some pictures of the finished project:


The blog candy that is going to be given away is: 3 of the Terri Sproul Mixers and a Bottle of Crystal Lacquer. Whoopie! The winner of the blog hop will be posted on Monday July 30th on the Sakura blog.
