Hello and a warm welcome, I had a very crafty day today and finally got around to decorating this little hinged wooden icon!
To begin, I started painting in acrylic paint and used the cracking technique, you know the one where you paint with PVA after the first coat and then paint again, over the glue and it all cracks. Pretty soon I abandoned that idea and started again, it just wasn't working the way I wanted it to. So.........fairly recently I found some beautiful fairy images. These were a freebie from Magic moonlight
They may be by Edmond Dulac but I could be wrong. I just think they are wonderful and this afternoon I was in a little dream world, back to my childhood when I'd read fairy stories in books illustrated by him.
There is a site dedicated to some of his work Edmond Dulac If you're interested, click on his name and be whisked off to an adventure with his magical illustrations.
After all that they probably aren't by him anyway:0)
Edited to add, I've been enlightened about the origin of the fantastic Fairie pictures. They are by John Atkinson Grimshaw, Thanks to Sylvia at POPPY'S PAPERCRAFT PATCH
