'Autumn' the fairy

Hi everyone, here is my new fairy which I'm going to add to my shop. I had so much fun with the mixed media on my last fairy that I had another go, using more tissue paper and patterned paper as well as inktense pencils and paint. I have also bought a varnish that is a spray on instead of a paint on as I was finding that it would smudge some of my mixed media pieces, these photos were taken before the varnish as I wasn't sure how it would turn out but it looks good and is just drying now!!

This week was very lucky and honoured to receive a few blog awards from some lovely people. Thank you so much, it's been a crazy weekend this weekend with lots of family gatherings as well as the inlaws coming to stay so I'm afraid I haven't been able to respond to them properly, I shall get on to that this week!!

PS Sure miss you on the Sunday Sketches. I know I miss posting consistantly (same time every Sunday), but it does help having others doing it with me. So, if you know anyone else who would like to participate as well....the more the merrier!

Hugs!!! :)

Really lovely Nicola, she is adorable and I love the autumn leaves swirling around her! It's also so nice to see the real green leaves behind your painting, we won't see those for at least six weeks! Have a great week, Susan

Autumn fairy is adorable! I use spray varnish as well. It's so much easier to use.
