This Fairy project looks like a lot of fun and a great new twist to just coloring in a book. This is so cool and will make a nice wall hanging for a kids room or even in a hall way. My grands have been cutting up their coloring pages after they finish. I do not know why but this is a great way to put them to use. My grand daughter likes fairies so this will be just perfect. I love mixed media art. Anyone make one yet? Let's see pictures.
