Affirmation Fairy

May I introduce to you my first ever 'Affirmation Fairy'. I have been searching for inspiration as some of you may know and while waiting to pick the children up from school yesterday I opened my March issue of 'Cloth Paper Scissors'. I found a piece in there really captivated me!! The artist's name is Kelly Rae Roberts and her wonderful story that went with her work really lifted my spirits. http://www.clothpaperscissors.com/cpsmag/cpshome.html

This is the first time I have ever used a figure I have painted in a collage, I usually use vintage photos. I know she may look abit elementary..but I LIKE her! She has some affirmations that speak to my heart collaged on her dress..

I really enjoyed painting her actually... her blue eyes and heart shaped mouth... It took me some time to think of the affirmations.. rough week and all..DH is a bit miffed..at me.. snow is still in the forecast... She really made me smile when it was all said and done..could we all use more 'Smiles'? Why not fashion your own?... This little one will help me lighten up!

I think I might have to make some sisters for her! Have a Happy Wed. everyone..

Your Affirmation Fairy is simply divine and sweeter than a cold glass of tea on a hot summer day. Happy belated b-day and may all your wishes come true!
