Let Your Inner Fairy Fly!

Welcome to the Fairies' Tea and thank you to Inspiration Avenue for hosting this party!   I love everything about fairies.  One of my favorite stories is Peter Pan.  I had the great joy of playing Peter in our local theater company's production of the musical in 2003.  I loved asking the audience if they believed in fairies, and having them clap their hands to help save Tinkerbell!  I used one of the lines from Peter Pan on this piece, which is a digital collage made of elements I hand-painted using watercolors:
Every fairy has, of course, magical powers to make dreams come true, especially the wish to live happily ever after.  (Wouldn't it be fun to do a bookmark swap one day?  Hmmm....)
Here's a digital collage with elements I hand painted, including a fairy castle and important fairy accessories:
And finally, here is an art journal page, in which I collaged this lovely fairy on top of a watercolor and stamped background, added some zentangled and watercolor flowers, and this great saying: "Spread your wings and let the fairy within you fly!"  We all have the ability to create and experience magic -- we just have to let it out!
There are lots of cool prizes and giveaways on Inspiration Avenue, as well as on the blogs of all the other participants in the Fairies' Tea.   I hope you'll have a chance to visit all the tea parties!  As promised, comment below on my post to have a chance to win this original 6" x 8.5" watercolor  (to be chosen by the random fairy!).
Thank you for visiting! If you are so moved, please leave a comment. Hearing from you means the world to me.
