Well, as you can see, I did not step too far outside of my comfort zone for this first one! Ummm, a fairy journal spread, of course, done with caran d'ache w/c crayons and acrylic paint. I did her in my hot press watercolor paper journal using golden gesso, crafter's workshop stencil, colorwash spray, glimmer mist, and clear stamps with distress ink and white paint.
Underneath it all I journaled both pages with thoughts on blue and garden treasures in blue. After writing about the garden, my tiffany blue fairy ended up masquerading as the heavenly blue morning glory fairy for this week, ha!
The mantra reads...
Morning Glory Faerie and Vine,
Disease and depression you will bind
With cool, calming peace of mind.

My second project was another fairy, Blu Garden Faerie, done in my doodle style on painted and stamped background...
Blu Garden Faerie
Although I had fun doing them both, I think this one is my favorite blue fairy. Viva la Summer of Color!
Stay tuned for next weeks' color and entry!
Music in the studio this week was Zen collections.
