Ahhhh, my fairy chair is finally finished for the second and a half time. I originally painted this chair in '09, and I didn't like it. I wasn't fond of the lavender trellis. Or much of anything, really. I was trying to paint something for someone other that ME.
To make it into something I liked, I decided to paint a fairy sitting in flowers on it. Well, my projects, if they start bad, just get worse. It's like the bad ideas snowball. I chose for my fairy model a woman out of a J. Jill catalog. I ended up with a dark, dangerous looking fairy on a child's chair.
The Bros. Grimm was NOT what I was going for.
|No, I'm not going to show a better view.|
The chair sat around for-e-ver. I finally removed the fairy and drew a new, softer fairy on the chair. Then the desire to actually paint it again never came. So it sat. And sat. Until ......
|OH! I like this better!|
I've been doing so many (failed) experimental transfers of late that it opened my mind to decoupage.
And so, what better time than the present?
Come here little fairy chair ......
I finally have a finished fairy chair and it's going to etsy later today. And maybe to my booth. It will be so cute in someone's nursery!
This is the cutest little fairy!
