Those of you who follow my blog will know I love Austria, we holiday there as often as we can and I can even speak the language, on a good day!!!Austrian bakers must be the best in the world, so many different breads and cakes, I love visiting them for kaffee and Kuchen in the afternoon. As I enjoy baking I like to use my language skills to bake Austrian bakes and most of the time they even work! For Easter I made an Austrian Easter bread

I used the egg shape for her body, the square for the base and the head and sign as you can see.
Her features and the word carrots were cut on my Silhouette Cameo, along with her pink inner ears.
Her jacket I cut from scraps of Scrapbook paper. The collar and pockets from scraps of coloured card.
A few buttons finished her outfit off.
To stand her up I glued a cloths peg to her back, hubbies idea, and disguised it with white paint and a strip of the paper I used for her jacket. I also added a little pom pom from some pom pom trim to give her a tail. The peg just made her easier to glue to the base.
The carrots I got from the £1 shop and the fence was cut out using an old Sizzix Ranger on the edge die called on the fence.
Her little bow was also cut with a die and finished with a glittery button.
It was such fun making this little scene and I am sure I will use it every Easter for may years to come.
Happy Easter x

So my Snow Fairy art doll was born! I made her as a project for the Fruit Pixie who I design for.
