I started this creation to join in with the Created by Hand Challenge but life became full and I did not manage to meet the deadline. I wanted to create a grungy quirky fairy. Well her she is. Then I saw that she could fit into the Teal and Brown brief with Something Completely Different Challenge.

The "I love Vivienne Westwood" is in honour of my daughter who has just finished her Bronze Arts Award. Part of the award was to research her Arts Hero, which was of course, Vivienne Westwood. I also thought as I was creating her that maybe Vivienne would also lean towards the grungy especially as she created the Punk look. I too think she is unique as a designer. Very individual and outstanding in her field. 

Whilst writing my last comment inspiration came to me. Now I have added the Stars and Moon she can be part of the Created by Hand Challenge. The sun came out when I re-photographed her. Isn't it amazing what a little bit of sun can do to enhance the colours.
I think she should be called "Moon Flower". If you do not know these flowers they are large and white and smell wonderful. Climbers that are faded by morning their delight is at night time. They really prefer a warmer climate than the UK. I have tried to grow them here but not really successful.
