Captured Fairy

There's something so enchanting about Fairies that makes you want to capture them and hold the magic inside but only for a moment, then they need to be set free again. 







I found this wonderful idea on Pinterest. The company Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts sells these beautiful chipboard Fairies. I was intrigued by the idea of making a few captured Fairy jars of my own once I saw how they were put together. 
Here how you start....Lot of the products I used I carry in my
Moore Art From The Heart Artfire store so please go take a peek.

I took my Emboss it Dabber and Melt Art in black to create almost an enamel look to the Fairies. This helps them hold up to being glued to the inside of the jar. I did emboss both sides of the Fairies. 

Using a clear small jar I then used Mod Podge to glued tissue paper to it. Next placing the Fairy inside and adding Glass Glitter around the edges. 
With ink sprays I splattered and dripped them down the sides of the jar. Used a stamp to add more layers. I then picked out flowers that matched the sprays I used and placed them on the jar too. A bit of jute twine around the neck of the jar and a quick spray of color to the cork lid and I was done..... Oh and placing a tea light inside to get a peek at the captured Fairy.
