Get Messy | Season of Fairy Tales | Week 2

Week two of the Season of Fairy Tales and I avoided the prompts and just made my own pages. This week there are two spreads.

The first one relates to my favourite fairy tale, Thumbelina. I’ve loved this story since I was a little girl, and I couldn’t resist but to track down the two copies I remember from my childhood.

I attempted an image transfer of a page from one of the books, but it failed miserable. I suspect the paper and ink was wrong and possible two old. But you can kind of see the print in there if you look really close.

The second spread I made using a napkin I found in the kids party section at the supermarket. I love The Little Mermaid, it reminds me of my babysitting days – the two little girls I cared for loved this movie so much that we watched it over and over again. So this page is an ode to them really.

And that’s it in my journal this week. I’m looking forward to checking out the prompts for next week. Until then, happy fairy tales season to you all.
