With grumblings from my belly for some nourishment I headed downstairs to the kitchen and while on my way to prepare a decadent snack I noticed out of the corner of my eye a twinkling and rustling of paper. There on a shelf was a book of sketches that I had started several, well, probably 2-3 years ago. I had forgotten about these little gems that featured pen & ink along with pencil renderings of "fae" creations. I love the fantasy and magic of fairies and thought it would be fun to share the sketches along with a few other treasures I found while on this inspiring "Fae Watch". So here are a few quick pics of the once "lost sketches" (maybe not lost...buried under a mountain of papers). These were just quick, rough designs that I had planned on, well, I don't really know that I had a plan at the time I was just inspired to create them. Fairy Magic I guess...hehehe!
In this last sketch photo I included a colorful collection of fairy cards that I also found in the pile of goodies!
Here's another little fun piece that I created a while back . . . on the same shelf. An altered "Fairy Firefly" that stands poised inside an old glass canning jar. Seems not to be too happy inside there. Think I should let her out? hehehe!
I know not everyone BELIEVES in fairies, but you know the world might be a better place if we sometimes just let our creative imaginations soar with inspiration and share kindness joy and laughter with each other everyday!
I BELIEVE and I hope you do too!
As the little sign that hangs by my front door says,
"Fairy Tales Do Come True"
And That My Friend Is My Wish To YOU!
