Windows of my imagination

Do I hear rustle of silk, do I hear tinkle of bells, something small and delicate flies across the windows of my imagination. Perhaps a fairy!

Wings finished!

I think I am done with the wings. I don't think I need to embellish them anymore even though I am not very pleased with them.

Progress on wings

I took Deb Woods dragonfly wings class but I decided that I have too little patience to burn all those little holes one by one. So I decided to make fairy wings instead which I reckoned wouldn't require too many holes๐Ÿ˜ƒ. After following all the instructions this is what I got. 

I was not too pleased with the way it turned out ๐Ÿ˜”, so I coloured it with Adirondack alcohol ink. I am glad to say I definitely like it better now. As you can see when I pick it up and let the light pass through it really pops. Now I shall embellish more to make it look magical. Hmmm.. I have go and rummaged in my stash to see I have the right embellishments.

Back and rested

First of all thank you to all of you for your best wishes for my mum. She is still not fully recovered and pretty weak. Hope she will feel better soon. She will be 89 on this month.
 I am back home now and almost got over the jet lag. I managed to get a better picture of the poster that was intriguing me.  I found out that the guy is a local politician like I suspected but was not sure why there was a picture of a little child. It turned out that the child is his daughter and he was celebrating her first birthday. The rest are all his party members. Sadly in India caste system is still prevalent and he is supposed to represent the schedule caste.

Today I was trying to make these fairy wings

I got a bit stuck because I don't have any glue stick! It is always something as simple as this that tends to stump you๐Ÿ˜„
