Karla's Faerie Book Swap
Karla Nathan comes up with really wonderful swap ideas - like this one! We sent in 8 fairy pages and received 8 different pages bound into a book. Karla made the covers, selected the best pages for each book, and decorated the binding ring with lovely ribbons and charms.
Warning: Lots of Photos Ahead!
|Karla's Front Cover - she hand-painted the beautiful little fairy, then decorated the copies differently with flower petals or leaves for the fairy's wings and added other embellishments too. Probably no two covers are exactly alike.|
Flower Fairies - Tami Hacker - the arms and legs move so she can dance!
Tami digitally created the back of her page
Suzie Button - blue satin, lace, jewels, butterflies, and more!
The back of Suzie's page - how dreamy!
Beautiful Fairy in a forest of green velvet leaves - Ruth Flowers
A younger fairy on the back of Ruth's page - and dream by Nancy Collins
The back of Nancy's page - and Kathy Kathy Cabble's Blue Flower Fairy - the dewdrops don't show in my photo
The Blue Flower Fairy's back page - and Lynn Legge's Sleeping Fairy - so elegant
The back of Lynne's Sleeping Fairy. I think this might've been the front of the page - so beautiful - but the other side looked better with the Blue Fairy page. Karla selected pages that looked good together for each book. Here the Fairy Whispers page by Myrna Ernst looks good with Lynne's page. Of course, they're both beautiful on their own too!
The back of Fairy Whispers - and this sweet Pink Fairy leaning over to smell the flower by Carol Pohl. She makes me think of a Hummel girl!
The back of Carol's Pink Fairy page - the really dramatic background doesn't show so well in my photo! Karla used vintage wallpaper for the inside front and back covers, as well as the back cover.
I'm so happy that I was able to join this swap! Love my book!!! When I made my pages to send to Karla, I made an extra to keep for my own book. I'll show it along with the others I made in my next post - soon, I hope!
