Magic Fairy Dust

She is magic.  I had absolutely the best time ever stitching this canvas.  The canvas is an adaptation of an illustration by Paper d'Art.  Ruben's illustrations are just so dear.  They are magic by themselves.  They have all these tiny details that I love.

I am much more about tiny details and changing colors and adding beads than I am about large areas of one thing.  If you know me, you know my definition of a large area is anything over 1 inch.  But I digress.

I played when I stitched this fairy.  There's lots of floss, different sizes of metallics and beads and crystals.  Regular Tent Stitches change direction as needed to follow a curve.  I plied up or down on the floss to get the depth that I needed. 

I wasn't really sure how I wanted to finish her and then we can up with the idea that she should be a large ornament.  Imagine her hanging over a little girl's bed.  She's guaranteed to bring nothing but sweet dreams.
