My 3D Quilled Fairy

I love fairies, there’s no question about that.  If I’ve said it once I’ve said a million times: “I do believe in fairies, I do, I do!!”  I’m not crazy, I think Walt Disney believed in fairies too, and so did J M Barrie, the writer of Peter Pan.  I have a gnome in my garden and a bunch of fairies beautifying my patio as they hang from a fairy mobile.  So, as a natural progression, I am now making my own fairy world…out of paper.  This is the scene that sits on one of my night stands:

The elf was by itself for a while, until the fairy “showed up” yesterday.  It is my very first quilled fairy and, although it is flawed, I love her.  I love 3D quilling. 


The fairy is all paper.  When I finished it, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and then with a sealant.

Then I have her standing on several buttons, which is something that I did for the flowers as well.

I cut out the shape of a leave from a foam sheet and colored it with markers to create a base for my little fairy scene.

So I leave you all with another view of my fairyland:
