The Garden Fairy

Oct 13, 2011

This lit­tle album is one that can be found in my book Delight In The Details. The inside of the album was not able to be shown so I thought I would share it with you. The pho­tos used are ones I took of my niece Made­lyn when she and her fam­i­ly were stay­ing with me and Alan dur­ing hur­ri­cane Rita, sev­er­al years ago. Made­lyn was hav­ing so much fun run­ning around the back­yard dressed up as a fairy. I just let her play while I snapped away catch­ing her each and every move.

I print­ed each of the pho­tos in black and white onto a trans­paren­cy then used a sewing machine set to a straight stitch to attach each pho­to to the pat­terned paper. You need to real­ly pay atten­tion to where you place your pho­to when using pho­tos print­ed onto trans­paren­cy paper because you don’t want part of the pat­tern to end up cov­er­ing the face of your sub­ject. I placed Made­lyn’s face so it looked as though she was hid­ing among the trees and flow­ers of the pat­terned paper. I real­ly like how the pho­tos look on each page… kind of mys­te­ri­ous just as a gar­den fairy would be.

Gar­den fairies…

come out at dawn…

bless the flow­ers…

then they are gone.

If you have not print­ed pho­tos using inkjet trans­paren­cy paper give it a try, you can cre­ate all kinds of won­der­ful projects.
