DRAGON FLY FAIRY & COSMO KITTY FOLK ART PRIMITIVES






“Dragon Fly Fairy & Cosmo Kitty”

This project design took my breath away!
It started with my three year old daughter wanting to help me. I said okay Julia you can tell me what color you want her hair to be! She said Red! It progressed all the way down to her little black shoes. After I had totally colored our design I thought maybe I should do a wash around her! Ooh big mistake I managed to really make a mess of the back ground. So I called on my little helper and explained the problem. She said “That okay Mommy we can just make another background” I thought long and hard on that one! Then it hit me yes she is right we can. I told Julia what we have to do is totally cut her out with scissors then place her on another background! It was a tedious job getting every little strand of hair and whisker cut. My exacto knife came in real handy! I called to Julia when I had finished and said okay I need you to pick out the background. She was very excited and proceeded to look though 50 scrap booking sheets! I am not kidding you she manage to only find four! Then I told her out of these four which do you like best and all I can say is the end is history! I was so impressed that I truly feel I could have not finished the project with out her! It is a design created by Mommy and Daughter!
