While sorting out in my sewing box I came across some Flower Fairy scraps that I once used in Hannahs bedroom when she was young. She had a huge fire surround but the fire had long since been blocked up. So where the fire was , it was just bare plaster. I got my dad to cut me a peice of plywood and i painted it matt black. I then sat for nights on end cutting out all these little flower fairies and pasting them onto the board to make a collage. When finished I varnished it to seal it and we popped it into place, from a distance it just looked like a very colourful board until you got up close and then you could see all the tiny little fairies. Hannah was just young at the time and she used to sit for ages and look at them all, there must have been hundreds of them on it. I kept what i had left in a packet, so no doubt you will now see the odd one on an atc.
