Button Fairy

I was in a swap where we were to make a button fairy.
I had never heard of such thing but thought it sounded fun. 
So I googled it and came up with an idea.

Here is my very first button fairy.

Heart Shaped ATC

This is a heart shaped ATC I made for a swap on swap-bot. 
I cut out the heart (atc size) with my Cameo and adhered it to cardboard.
Painted it red, splattered paint & gave it texture.
Collaged on music paper, old book page, & the woman.
Added words, flower & bling.

Black Out Poetry ATC

For this atc I used an old book page. 
I blacked out words that I didn't need for my poetry that I found within the text. 
I hand drew a face to go with the words I chose.
