"FLOWER FAERIE" Face design!

"Flower Faerie" face pin
My new fairy pin design

I decided I needed to try something a little different for my pin designs (so I don't get bored)....and the above photo shows my first little "flower fairy" face pin! They take about 2 hours to create, as the petal background is a crocheted rosette (which I purchased), which I have hand-dyed using silk fabric paints to match the faerie's hairdo. It is a bit messy, but I love to see the colors flow on.

Below is a photo, which I talked my husband into taking, while I had the pin attached to my sweater. It turned out rather I told him he was hired!

Pin's Back

I'd love to hear some comments on my new idea...., so if you feel like letting me know what you think of this style pin, I'd really appreciate it. You can learn more about her by clicking on the top photo.

I just might have one of these "flower faerie's" as one of my monthly giveaways. What do you think?

Oh this one is jumping right out at me. The hue of colors are perfect - it says spring and she has an innocence about her face that I just love.
