Little Fairy in Hidden Forest


I would like to wish each and every one of you a wonderful 2014 and I hope that all your wishes and dreams come through this year!

Speaking of dreams… I always think of fairies as something magical coming from our dreams so today I created the lovely Fairy Fae from Tiddly Inks combined with Hidden Forest from Make it Crafty: Little Fairy in Hidden Forest.

And there’s something very unique about this image: it’s going to my very first Art Walk, which is the 2nd Saturday each month in Sacramento. If you’re in the area, please stop by at Son of a Bean Coffee House for some awesome coffee and art, I’ll be there this Saturday!

I first combined the two PNG images where the Fairy image will serve as added shadow (photo below) and had an additional Fairy image cut out by my Silhouette Portrait —- please check out my very first tutorial on how to use digital images. Of course, coloring the main image is always the most fun! I color the images with Copic Markers (list of markers below plus the final photo) spending a lot of attention to details and quality. Once coloring is complete, I highlight some parts with Fiskars glitter gel pens or glitter glue to add a little extra glow, which looks beautiful in natural light. I also used some mica fragments I found at Stampers Corner.

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize the artwork with a name, a quote or a special message, endless options really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Please visit my Etsy Store and  Facebook Page for more ideas and colored images. 

I am also posting more detailed photos below, please check them out too.

hugs, Rita
