Good morning folks, its time for some inspiration over at Polkadoodles as you've still got a week to enter our 'Glitter, Bling and Sparkle' challenge to be in with the chance of winning a gift certificate for the Polkadoodles Download Store!
Colouring this gorgeous fairy from the Serenity Collection and one of the gorgeous pages from Colour Therapy 1 Floribunda with my Lyra Polycolour pencils kept me amused for hours. I've added some sparkly beaded trim and given the fairy some sparkly wings with a little glamour dust.
I began by adding the sentiment (from Serenity)to the colouring page in Publisher. I printed the fairy separately and coloured them both us with my pencils.
Once the were coloured I took some corrugated card and gave it a wash of watered down gesso. I layered the coloured page up on one of the beautiful distressed wood backgrounds and added lace, pearls and some bead trim. I also popped some glossy accents on the 'bubbles' on the image and sprinkled them with glamour dust. I cut the fairy out and layered her up with silicone glue. I made a little hanger with seam binding ribbon.
