Fairy in a Jar


Fairy in a Jar, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

A fairy in a jar. So much fun! I made her wings out of transparency film. I had been meaning to do one of these ever since I had seen them on the web. At the last Pointy Hat Art Posse meeting, lovely Miss Galm brought her fairy in a jar, and I realized that the time had come for me to do this project!

And by the way, this fairy bears a startling resemblance to a young Miss Arla Mortimer, my beautiful grandmother, who passed away in 1995.

Well done! Very pretty. I made one myself too actually, make sure you either use netting on top or punch air holes so that she can breath. Very cute nice job!
