Merry meet my fairy souls! For those of you who enjoy my paintings and illustrations here are some of my winter fairy greeting card- designs. You can find these and other Christmas/Seasonal Greeting cards from my zazzle store.
Winter Bringer - Fairy
This was loosely inspired by the Germanic legend of Frau Holle. She was a winter goddess who was told to create snowflakes by shaking sheets/apron. I turned the idea a bit so that the winter bringer fairy would create snow by flipping her wings (you´ll get straight to the product pages by clicking the images).
The Ice Fairy
Idea of the ice fairy was more straight forward. I was thinking all the colors in an icicle. How it reflects all the color spectrum. The ice fairy must have all those colours as well.
Aurora, Fairy of the Northern Lights
The only acrylic painting of the bunch. Aurora is the joyous fairy of the northern lights. To me this painting reminds me of my childhood. We used to spent Christmas at my grandparents who lived in the border of Lapland and northern lights were in the night sky every night.
People collect so many things. My mom´s bff collects angels, my sister collects movie tickets... I used to collect fairies. I don´t really collect them anymore, people just give them to me. I turned 30 last year and hold a fairy-themed birthday party. Yes, most of the gifts I got had a fairy-theme. I thought to share some pictures of my fairy collection with you.
I don´t know if anyone plays with Barbies anymore but I am a 90´s baby. We didn´t have phones, we played with Barbies and My Little Ponies. This is the only fairy Barbie I have (at the moment). I actually have another fairy-doll as well but she is a Cindy not Barbie. Anyway this lady is my purple fairytopia-Barbie. She also came in light blue and pink skin tone but I think purple is the most dreamy.
Oh look at those slippers!
Of course a fairy Barbie must be accompanied with a mermaid Barbie. She is a DIY creation.
