Fairy Spoolie

Today I have a cute little Spoolie to share you.  I've been wanting to make one of these for awhile and when I saw the PWP Mar Mixed Media, I knew it would be perfect for this kind of project.

Isn't she adorable?!  Everything on this project came in the PWP Mar Mixed Media kit except for the spool, small flowers, bling and the sentiment.

I started out by adhering the twill trim to an old wooden spool.

Then I cut out some flowers using my Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge.  I cut the flowers out of the sheets of book text included in the kit and inked them with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.    I glued all of the layers of flowers to the top of the spool to create a base for my fairy.  Do you see the key trim that she's standing on?  That is a small wooden piece that I covered with the other trim included in the kit.

I added a small crotchet flower to the top of the wooden piece for a nice finished look.

This cute little fairy and her beautiful wings are on the sheet of clip art.  I fussy cut them out and added some color using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I also added a little sparkle with Stickles.

To give her a little more support, I cut one of the library cards with the Tim Holtz Mini Baroque die.  Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and inked with TH Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo.  The sentiment I used is from the PWP Prince Stamp set.  I adhered it with foam for some dimension.

To finish her off, I added some flowers from my stash, a flower button and some Recollections bling.  I really like the way this turned so I think I'll be making more spoolies.
