i believe in fairies

Authentique Paper and Maya Road are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Maya Road products!

After you check out the inspiration here on the Authentique Paper blog today, be sure to head on over to the Maya Road blog to find out what the talented members of the Maya Road Design Team have created.

hello everyone and welcome - or welcome back! - to the authentique and maya road cross-promo hop! i hope you've been inspired by the projects so far, i know i have!

today's project was inspired by my fascination with "the world of arrietty" and my love of fairies. 

i believe, do you?

i started with the 3x3 canvas coaster album from maya road and a collection of glimmer mists.

the fairies were created with different papers from authentique and chipboard dress forms from maya road. each fairy is dressed from a different paper collection.
there is a tiny bit of crackle paint and ink on each dress form base and head.
and many "missing" items from my house have magically appeared here in this mini book ...  

keepsake fairy is dressed with "carefree" paper and her wings used 
chunky elements embossing powder.
we can never find our keys at our house... 

stitching fairy created a dress with a bit of my "delightful" paper.
just like a true "borrrower", little bits and pieces from my craft drawer, 
including some of my maya road "sew cute" minis have appeared here.

spring fairy has faux grass, maya road leaf trinket pins and flocked wings. 
she borrowed her dress material from a sheet of my "free bird" nest.

seaside fairy is dressed with glittering wings to go with her "splendid" dress. 
in her travels she has gathered shells and ocean treasures. 

knick knack fairy "borrowed" all of our watch gears. 
she's obsessed with time, and with my "splendid" paper.

i hope this tiny book has inspired you with big ideas. be sure to stop by the maya road page today, and visit us tomorrow for another authentique inspiration!
