Gecko Galz Altered Clothespin Fairy

Gecko Galz had a Blog Hop in October and gave away some wonderful Collage Sheets. The Design Team Members created a variety of artwork using the sheets for inspiration. It was great eye candy! To give the participants an extra chance to win some wonderful prizes, Gecko Galz is sponsoring a challenge on their blog site. You have until November 24th to enter. Check it out here.

I created an altered clothespin fairy for the bonus challenge. I painted a clothespin and wooden spool black and glued them together with dimensional paint. I then glued the spool to a black plastic poker chip (you could probably leave this step out or use a wooden circle). 

I used collage images from these three sheets to create my fairy:

Asian Beauty
Sew and Sew
Butterflies and Birds

I added some chalks to enhance the colors of the images. Once my collage was arranged and tacked down with a glue stick, I laminated the collage for durability. I then used strong double stick tape to adhere my collage to the front and the mini dressform to the back of my structure. I added some sequins, seed beads, a blue rhinestone and some yarn to finish my Gecko Galz Fairy. 

Along with the Gecko Galz Challenge, I am entering this pretty fairy in the following challenges:

Creative Moments - #4 anything goes
The Squirrel & Fox - #31 anything goes
The Corrosive Challenge - #162 flutter by
Robyn's Fetish - #134 make it vintage
Paper Playtime - #89 anything goes
Tuesday Alchemy -#41 anything but a card

Thanks for looking! Please check out the wonderful artwork displayed on the above listed sites. The Design Team Members work hard to create artwork that is inspiring and motivational!
