The Wind and Fairy Dust

The wind is blowing today, as usual, but I think a cold front is coming in.  Time for the jackets and sweaters.  You know, the clothes that weigh a lot and not as comfy as our summer clothing.  We could call them outfits but don't think guys like their "outfits" to be called that.  Funny isn't it what we all call things according to our gender. 

When the wind blows all little pollens and dust particles are in the air and you wonder what else is in the air floating around.   I like to think fairy dust is there also spreading their magic and good feelings around.   So that made me think of doing a little painting. 

I drew a little fairy, made her hair with tangled line drawings and just had fun with her.  I then scanned her in and colored her in the Corel Painter.  You use a Wacom tablet, you could draw with it but I just have not mastered fine drawing with it so a pencil and paper will just be good enough.  I mean it was good enough for the old masters so should be good enough for a West Texas gal don't you think?  Funny story, when I first started painting back in the olden days I always thought if I bought the perfect brush like the teacher had I could just go to town painting like he or she.   Strange what you think at times isn't it?  Nope, not the brush, it is what is in your head.  When you convince your fingers to cooperate you have it made in the shade with you art, wellllllllll until you try and learn something else that is.
 
  I then added a beautiful image of the roses from Vintage Catnip I do believe and also added some fairy dust from Painter.   Such a sweet little brush.  I chose yellow for mine.  So here she is.  I added the roses in the background and lowered the opacity and then added the same rose in the front.  I added some pastel pencils to kind of tie it all together.  Just playing and seeing if I could still remember what all I had learned during the years.   I am loving the art journaling, the drawing and painting and most of the time the computer so will see if they can get along together.


Here she is, not sure about it though, still just playing around with the several medias and seeing if they will gel together or not.  Be sure and click on her to see her bigger.  If you want.

Well thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.  xoxoxox
