::Alphabet Letters: "Dusty Dawn"

Just made these for a a woman who saw and loved *THESE*
When she told me she wanted me to incorporate taupe, sage green, light blue and light pink I thought these would be a write-off; a give-the-customer-what-she-wants-even-if-it's-crazy situation. However, I fell in love with these. The colours are soft and muted. They lend well to being aged and stamped. They make me happy. They remind me of dawn.

::Bottlecap Fairies: Photo Shoot::

These were such a hit at the craft shows last year, as well as the local shops I brought them to, I am thinking of fine-tuning them and putting a bit more effort into marketing them. They need proper heads, for example. I may need to work on my beading skills in order to come up with something. Any ideas? Perhaps I will take them in to Sassy Beads and ask for advice.

::Blue Amazon Butterfly::

1. Find the thickest wire you can, making sure you can still twist it. Shape the wire into wing-shapes.
2. Create a mixture of white glue and water. Grab a foam paintbrush and some light blue tissue paper.
3. Coat the wing-shapes with thick strips of tissue paper until the wings are completely covered. Let dry.
4. Add detail to the dried wings using acrylic paint.
5. We attached our wings with thick hair ribbon.
