You’ve been reading my blog for months now so it’s no secret that I like series, sweet little images that are similar and can make a nice collection together. When I decided to create my Little Fairy in Hidden Forest image, I already knew that this Fairy in Daffodil Field image would be the next… and yes, there’s one more too so please check back next week too.

How did I create this image? As my usual routine, I turned to Silhouette Studio with a little twist! This time I combined Tiddly Inks Fairy Fae and Make it Crafty Daffodil Dell in Silhouette Studio (both new, used for the first time! how exciting!), then outlined the same fairy outside the combined image and had my Silhouette cutter complete the intricate cuts — please check out my very first tutorial on how to use digital images. And of course, there’s another tutorial on how to work with more complex digital images. Once prints and cuts were complete, I colored the fairy on the main image with C7 Copic marker to give a good shadow effect to the image that gets placed on top. If you like this hair coloring technique, please take a look at my tutorial: Coloring Hair with Copic Markers 1.1

Once coloring is complete, I usually highlight some parts with Fiskars glitter gel pens or glitter glue to add a little extra glow, which looks beautiful in natural light. This time I used mica fragments on the wings over lavender liquid pearl and clear glue — gorgeous glow in light. Then the main image is placed on foam squares to add to the 3D effect even more and even make it look like moving (wings can move actually). Once all together, the artwork goes inside a beautiful white frame and voila!

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize the artwork with a name, a quote or a special message, endless options really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Please visit my Etsy Store and  Facebook Page for more ideas and colored images.

hugs, Rita
