Simply B summer fairy challenge
When I saw the gorgeous image Betty was giving us for this months challenge I knew I had to take part. The condition of the challenge was to use a different background, not stamped or paper. I knew that I wanted to draw a flower for summer to dance on, but the problem was, apart from doodling I haven't drawn since I was at school and I wasnt that great then.In addition it definately didnt help having Oliver Jeffers (world famous childrens illistrator) was in my G.C.S.E. art class!!
All this aside I gave it a go, a simple sunflower, and I'm so glad I did because I love how it turned out.
I had originally coloured Summer in blues and green (promarkers) but she got lost in the vibrancy of the sunflower so I coloured her again with dark hair and a red dress, for her wings I used ivory with subtle hint of tea green. Off course I had to use stickles on her wings.
I really hope you like her, and most of all I hope Betty thinks I did her gorgeous image justice xox
I'd really appreciate any feedback x
Thanks for popping by Kathy and Maggie (the naughty pup who presented me with a dead rabbit yesterday) xox
I'd like to enter her into the following challenges:
