Paperbag Studio's Flower challenge

Please click on image to expand for detail.
Paperbag Studio have put up a new challenge this month.. "Flowers". I have used 3 paperbag Studio Stamps to make my captured Fairy (the lid has been left off for health and safety reasons. ). I have used the boy from the Imagined Sheet... and the flower and background script are from the Dreamer sheet. behind the jar is rusted paper and an old torn book page. The jar itself is an actual jar photo printed on to acetate and cut out. I mounted the jar and fairy on to the hanging with dimensional tape to give a 3D effect.


  1. This is just lovely....and you are such a good fairy keeper to leave the lid off.... :)

  2. Great idea Zuzu. Lots of gorgeous detail

  3. This is so beautiful. Genius idea to print out the jar photo on acetate (and well done on leaving the lid off so the little fairy can breathe, lol) I love all the little details, especially the trim and flowers along the bottom!

  4. Oh this is gorgeous!!!
    The jar looks really effective, and as already mentioned defo responsible Fairy keeping :D

    Hope you win:D

  6. So beautiful!!! I love all details!

  7. This is great Zuzu. So glad I dont have to report you to the RSPCF for leaving the lid on and therefore inhibiting the Fairy's quality of life.
    This is a very clever spin on the captured fairy idea, lovely work.

  10. Gorgeous piece!!! Fabulous details.

  11. This is such a fantastic piece of art. I'm so glad that you took the time to explain the making of this.

  12. The information and the aspect were just wonderful. I think that your viewpoint is deep, it’s just well thought out and truly incredible to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts so well. Good job!


More steam-“plunked” toy guns. And a cyber man.

These started out as brightly coloured water pistols. I still give them a light sanding because it’s hard to get paints etc to clin...
