October Challenge

Hello and welcome to October.

How does this flower fairy picture inspire you?  Isn't she gorgeous? I love flower fairies.  This image comes from here

This is a just for fun month but if you want to show us your creativity inspired by the picture there is a linky tool at the bottom

You'll have to excuse the rubbish photo. My phone lead has gone for a walk and I couldn't edit it - I made some brooches following the colour and fairy scheme.

and here is how our lovely design team were inspired:


I was inspired by the little fairy and used a photo of the fairytale park with.................some fairy's on it :-)

I found this fab book by Dawn Sokol (available from Amazon) which is a great way to get started art journaling or improve your doodle skills. I decided to use the page below to create this months DT piece.
The colours seemed perfect for an autumnal feeling piece.
 I used Faber Castell Big Brush Pens, Crayons and Gelaotos to create the finished piece above.

The first thing about the image that spoke to me was the fairy, so I definitely drew inspiration from her, as well as the colors and the leaves.  The message of 'love' is always a good one to spread.

I decided to use a fairy on my card, also giving it an autumnal feel using autumnal colours & papers.

I was inspired by the colours to create a layout with my friends. Butterflies, to represent the fairies.
