I made these four lovely ladies from shrine kits.  The plain shrine kit comes with 3 pieces which you can alter to your hearts content then put them together for a nice dimensional look.

The Enchanting Nature Fairy. 
I used different scrapbook papers for her body and wings, and added a metal bird charm and plastic heart cut out to the shrine.  She has a sparkly glitter crown to top it all off.


The Love Fairy. 
When my mom married my step-dad I was 6 or 7 and being a flower girl was just not good enough for me.  Nope, I had to be the Love Fairy.  They of course indulged this wish and I along with my fancy dress I got a matching wand with a large heart on the top which was covered in lace.  I really wish I still had that thing!  Unlike me who was dressed in peach (bleh) this love fairy is done with all shades of pink which I find to be much more appropriate for a fairy of love.

She was created with scrapbook paper, a chipboard frame, a wooden heart, and an ink pad.  Her crown is pink glitter.


The Intergalactic Fairy
I again used scrapbook papers, a chipboard frame, and ink pad for the majority of this fairy but I also added a star bead and moon cut out.  Her crown is inked in white.


Finally the Under the Sea Fairy
She was created with scrap paper, a scalloped edging paper, irridescent sea shells, dimensional paint, and tiny sea shells.


Quite a few of the supplies I used were purchased from Retro Cafe Art Gallery and Alpha Stamps.
