Something a little bit different....12 days of Whimsy - Day 1 Button Faeries

Good Morning Everyone! I have something a little bit different for you today...I have been wanting to try some different styles of crafting for a while now but never seem to have the time or never Linkreally know where to start. My good Friend Petra is a Master of mixed media and creates beautiful pieces of art which I adore so when she told me about the 12 days of Whimsy and the wonderful tutorials by Nancy, I just had to join in.

The first day of the 12 days was on Thursday and there is a fabulous tutorial to show you how to create these button faeries. I have never made anything like this before and I had so much fun creating this little decoration.
I used an image from this website and die cut a doily from silver card as the base. The butterfly was cut from music sheet and pieced together using two die cuts and distressed with vintage photo ink.
The buttons and flower and gems are from my stash and I added a little pearl to keep the buttons on. I have already made a project for day2 and have just seen today's and will definetely be giving that a go as well! I am off to do some Christmas shopping now.
Enjoy your weekend!
