A Fairy Collage...

"We might live with the Angels
that visit us on every sunbeam,
and sit with the fairies
who wait on every flower"
Samuel Smiles

I was finally able to take some time this week and finish the fairy collage. I used an 8 x 10 stretched canvas board, painted, stamped, and glued lots of layers. I used all things that I already had around the house; tissue paper, old sheet music, an old sewing pattern, and other pieces of left over ephemera. The paper flowers were from a wedding invitation that we attended last spring, the butterfly is actually part of a hair clip of Alexa's that had broken. It's definitely nice to know I did not end up spending any extra money...

I really wanted it to look whimsical and light hearted. The girls had so much fun the day this picture was taken that I wanted the collage to reflect that. They are only little once, and I wanted to create something that will remind me of the absolute joy they have had this summer with all of this fairy magic! I hope everyone enjoys the last little bit of summer.
