Violet Fairie

 another fairie is done and in his garden


 with critters

the dragonfly was made out of the last two fringes off a bead fringe that went on the red rose pouch from a few posts ago.
spider is made from flat Krenik, teardrop bead and a faceted glass bead.

the blue bird was made with stem stitch and split stitch on the wings

I found a little glass lamp-work snake in a drawer and thought it would look good just there under the button run

and there is another key hidden in the sequins.

every garden needs secrets. I outlined the fairies wings with krenik filament to give him a little more focus.

I don't quite know what I am going to do with these little guy's yet. maybe a wall hanging or separate boxes a purse? i don't know yet.
but they are fun to experiment with and challenge myself with.

my challenge with this one was how to balance it against that honking great bit of purple motif. How do you think I did?

Flora: You did a great job of balancing the purple motif! The block even has a wonderful clockwise "flow" like our Gerry Kreuger teaches us to aspire to with our blocks! It is lovely. Amy in LA
