CYP 178-Fairy Magic

Sorry that I disappeared for a few weeks.  My hubby and I bought a house!  It's so exciting to be homeowners and to finally be out of that tiny apartment.  It's crazy, we went from a 500 sq ft apartment to a 2300 sq ft home.  We're all a bit shell-shocked (particularly the kitty).

I foolishly believed that I would be able to completely unpack and set up the house in 1 week before school started.  Ha!  Wistful thinking; I'm still unpacking and decorating while trying to teach.  It's crazy but good.  However, I did set up my craft room!  I'm no longer confined to the corner of the living room, I have a craft room!  Yay!!!  My first project in the room was this week's Craft Your Passion project.  Our theme is:

Do You Believe in Fairies?

You definitely want to participate in this week's challenge because we're sponsored by two awesome digi companies: A Day for Daisies and The Paper Shelter.  I used an image called "Helping the Flowers" by A Day for Daisies.  I think it's a retired image, but they have a ton of new fairy images in the store and even a fairy kangaroo freebie that you can use.

Sorry for the weird colors; my camera is still packed somewhere so I used my hubby's iPad for the photo.  The navy tones are really teals, and the oranges are really reds.  Not sure why the colors turned out so different.  I tried a new technique with my Prismacolor pencils which I'm a big fan of.  I'll give you more details in a later post.  The wings were done by outlining in glue pen and then coating in glitter.  I'm going to send it to a neighbor who has worked really hard at welcoming us to the new home, so I broke OWH's 1st rule and pulled out the glitter.  It's good that I don't do that very often, my new room is coated in gold sparkles!

Can't wait to see all your fairies.  Be sure to link up at Craft Your Passion.
