RESUMING 'GIFT AWAY'






This is Poe, the Reminder Faerie. Quietly he sits with his intense and knowing eyes holding a snippet of prose, stunning haiku, or simple truths sorely needed. In the quiet of the day or the time before sleep when you most reflect on the hours of your day, Poe will remind you of what is important..what is necessary..what is vital for YOUR well being.

He is fashioned from stamped fabric (Zetti stamp/Stazon ink) and very lightly colored, paper butterfly wings added then fused to a lively print (his backside is important, also!) cut out carefully and sealed. Then he was made to sit, adhered to a wine cork that is topped with beads and a swirly, curly, piece of jewelry metal shaped to hold notes or poetry (or even the latest fortune from last night's Chinese take-out). He sits here in the faerie twig chair, but is just as comfortable on your table top or shelf.

Poe will arrive with many pieces of inspiration should you find yourself in short supply of your own, or until you find just the right piece of wisdom that speaks to your heart.

I am certain he will find a wonderful new home ~ BON CHANCE!!

Cindy Rella: I love Poe!!! He is just a darling soul. That is one of my most favorite Zetti images. When you say you sealed him, what did you mean?? And what did you fuse him with?? I would love to make something similar. Did you shape the wire yourself??? What a great gift away this is!!
Hugzzzzzzzzz,
Audra Mae, who got to see the eclipse last night!

Audra Mae ~ I sealed him with a spry matte sealer and fused him with stitch witchery bonding fabric, then ran a light line of clear drying glue around the edges to keep the two fabrics from fraying. The swirly wire I shaped myself with round nose jewelry pliers, and then hammered it for a fun look (but not necessary) then pushed it through a glass bead for embellishment and into the wine cork through the hole that was there from the opening of the wine bottle. I used E600 or 527 glue for that. A fun little project, glad you like him ~ hugs Rella

Oh, such a fair Raven, your Poe. We had a full moon, but in the West we did not have the lunar eclipse the East must have received. But light up the sky with all the twinkling stars is what luna did. I love your art and appreciate you explaining your technique and how you breathed life into your creations. Hope it's not to late to join your drawing!
