Fairy Journaling

OK I admit it - I killed my blog by using Facebook.

I hope I'm not too late to breathe some life back into it ?
I just feel like it's worth saving.
My blog is more 'me', I'm happier here 'cos maybe I feel like no one is looking...
I have been doing more mixed media, journaling and this
one of my more recent journal pages using a vintage fairy illustration by Helen Jacobs.
The background is a floral tissue paper coloured with Gelatos.
I think it turned out cute - the text is cut from an old Enid Blyton book.

Polyanthus Champagne just because it's such a lovely peachy shade.

2014 Summer Event Kid Delf Head painted by Nomyens.
Little miss no name on a Notdoll body.
(it's the only body I've got that matches the skin tone)
The wig is from eBay but I can't remember the seller.
It had longer bits but I cut them off!
I think it suits her face better.

And that is it for now !
Don't forget -

Yay, you are back! I think a lot of bloggers went over to Facebook. I prefer reading blogs as they are a lot more interesting.
I think your journaling is absolutely gorgeous!
Keep posting here!

Hello Carolyn,
The journal page is just lovely. What a wonderful background!
I think the wig looks very nice on her indeed.
Big hug
