pressed flowers, leeks and leaf fairies!:-)


pressed flowers, leeks and leaf fairies!:-)

here's what happened!:-)

i had a beauty-full big leaf, that i had been holding on to for just the right project...this was it:-)

the leaf is a cousin to something in the elephant ear pressed beautifully, almost transluscent!:-)

the fairy's skin is made from rose petals...she is dressed in tiny autumn leaves...corn silk for hair and tiny snippets of cornflower for her eyes...

her wings are made from pressed leeks!...yep, the kind you use in your soup!...i frequently raid the kitchen for material for flowerart!:-)

delicate strands of japanese maple leaf overlay the leek...

surrounded by grapevine from our property...

and that's how the leaf fairy was born!:-)
