Fairy Maiden - Altered Art, Assemblage, Vintage, Retro, BoHo, Gypsy



I met a lady in the meads
Full beautiful, a faery's child;
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.
~John Keats


 This plaque is wooden with a black wire hanger. I used paper to cover the plaque and collaged the vintage copy of the image with fairy wings in contrasting paper. I also collaged her with vintage flowers which I copied and placed around the bottom of her dress. The other side is also covered with paper and a fairy poem printed on parchment paper. At the bottom of the ornament you will find a funky finding.

You could hang this directly on the wall, or hang it from the ceiling or anything else appropriate as an ornament (which I prefer, but that’s me). 


Magical Beginnings Every Day To ALL !

Such a pretty and fun ornament; I can see this hanging loosely, with the breeze spinning it.

Magical and beautiful! Your art inspires me to think about creating! I have stacks of old children's books that are falling apart that I need to start using in some art projects. Maybe someday I will actually make something out of them!
