~My grumpy little Fairy altered art~

When searching through vintage graphics
I came across this adorable little grumpy girl..
So I thought I'd try my hand at a bit of altered art.
I've seen these adorable fairy/angels before.
With vintage book pages, sheet music
crape paper, ribbon, trims
I put them together..

Oh my gosh this is so cute! What a talent you have for mix & match graphics. How will you use these? Adorable.

I love this!!! Reminds me of a picture I have of my daughter when she was about two years old and not getting her way about something. You've got me thinking that I should do something creative like that with her little sourpuss face. You did a great job. Very clever!

I think I'll put them on thin thread & hang them above my desk here in my studio.
Anything for a smile :-}

I really like that, SO sweet! Clever idea rather than just going for a usual smiley face.

Mary Dear:
You never cease to amaze me with your multiplicity of talents!!!
I want to learn to alter art too but I am such a prude and do not get it : ) Everything about them is perfect!!! Evidently you, my dear, get it : )
Too cool!!!


Too cute and I have days like that, but I'm no fairy :)
Your Grandson is cute. My Granddaughter will be 6 on Sunday!!!
Don't they grow fast.

I love the grumpy little girl. I feel exactly as she does, as a result of the nasty March weather and the pains in my legs.

I love what you have done to her!!

Hi Mary, THANKS for stopping by my blog for a visit. I'm very new at this, but I find when someone takes the time to write a little something it reminds me of having a cup of tea with a good friend...I love that! These little 'Grumpy Fairys' are so cute it motivated me to try 'Altered Art'. They are adorable & I want to give them a tickle & try & make them smile!
Lovely Site...vintagesusie

Jen, Try searching on Pinterest for old, vintage or antique photos. Hope this comment reaches you, Mary
