'believe' a layout for Fairy's Challenge

Hello girls...I hope you're all doing well this week...

I was really pleased to be asked to be a Guest Designer at Fairy's Challenge, a Russian blog I 
visit often. I see some incredibly talented girls on this site, and this month there is a sketch 
by Ira Rulya.....


So I found this photo of some magical fairies in the woods, isn't it beautiful? I loved the dark eerie forest scene and I thought that the 7 Dots Studio paper from the 'Nature Walk' collection would be perfect. I started with some masking in the background with a doily stencil and then drew some black circles around the photo with a black watercolor pencil. Then I added some gold paint, stamping, black thread, twine, black beads and flowers. 

Here is the sketch....

Here are a few close ups of my fairies......

You can find Fairy's Challenge blog here.....and the October sketch details here.....

Thanks for looking! 
Until next time,
