Fairies 'Neath the Blooms

Today I took off from work to get some appointments out of the way.  Since one was in the a.m. and one was in p.m., I got to spend the middle of the day downstairs in "Snippyville."  Yippee!!!

It had occurred to me that I wanted to snip some traditional scherenschnitte but in 3D.  As I snipped, it turned back into my old favorite; fairies.  So here is my fairy snip of the day.


I fear that she resembles the "nekkit" lady silhouette that you see on mudflaps.  To differentiate, I went back and snipped a little line near her bottom so it looked like she was wearing a skirt.  That helps, I think.

AWESOME! I don't think your fairy is as buxom as the mudflap gal. :)

I always love your fairies. You have more talent in your little finger than I have in my whole body! Love the sketch you showed too!
