These are the foundation papers for this fairy from Paper Panache. I colored some of the pieces for 2 reasons. First is to see if I like what it will look like and second is to reduce piecing errors. I changed the shape of her face a little bit so it wasn't so angular at the top and near the eyes.
I like to do the piecing from the top down. Plus I was excited to see if the red Kaffe Fasset fabric I'd chosen for the hair would actually work.
I wanted a deep red like the glass of wine on the license plate to tie it in.
Is it 5:00 yet?
You know I love my gecko!!!
What do you think about the risky fabric choices? Remember this is not supposed to be a life-like portrait. It's an art piece of a fairy godmother.
I'm really pleased with how it's turning out!
Now I need to decide if I want to frame it or quilt it.
I'm leaning toward quilting but for now I can enjoy her smile.
Finish It Friday link up.
