Have you ever wondered where Fairies live?   Well, just step inside and join me for the challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week hosted by Lou Anne. The challenge is "Fairies".

This week in my search for Fairies, I spotted a few places that I am quite sure Fairies must live.

And here by the clear running water....

 When looking for Fairies, you must look closely, especially after a rain, early in the morning and when the sun is about to set.

Sometimes Fairies can be found sleeping inside the petals of beautiful flowers..

I have heard it told that they are very fond of Blueberries, . . .

And the scent of Lavender.

 Birds are the "watchers" for Fairies and alert them of any type of danger, they are loyal and trusted friends.

If you have ever wondered where Fairies live and you see a dragonfly, you can almost be assured that a Fairy is nearby.


This is my submission for the challenge this week on Fairies.  A handmade  collage 4 1/2" x 6" Art Journal with all blank pages suitable for artwork or journal writing.

I am also including tags with this journal and it can be found for sale once I get it listed in my Etsy shop. I used Jelly Roll pins with glitter but the photo doesn't show all the glitz.

This is the back side of the journal.

Added tags

Thank you for stopping by, be sure to check out the wonderful world of Fairies at Inspiration Avenue this week, and if you look hard, you might see one on your way!
