My Little Pocket Fairies

When I came across a black and white vintage photo of these four little girls I knew instantly that I had to create with it, I adore their wonderful expressions and the gorgeous clothes they are wearing, they were crying out to be altered into cheeky little fairies.... don't you agree?


I'm really into working with little booklets or shrines as some artists call them, and decorating this one to pop my little fairies into was a joy! I had such fun with it.

Popping the little darlings onto decorated lolly sticks enables the owner to remove them from the booklet/shrine and play around with them, if they so wish!!



So there you have it..... My Pocket Full of Fairies.
