This week is the official first week of fairy tale season with Get Messy - I absolutely love this theme and am so excited to share my pages today! 

I created all of these in my German language book, it's proving a pretty good base for collage, pen and even watercolour

An intro to my adapted fairy tale, I love this quote on the left, it is actually a bible verse! 
(Riet translated it for me)

My fairy tale pulls themes and creatures from across the Grimm land. Here we have Cinderella fleeing at midnight - not so she doesn't turn into a pumpkin, but so the big bad wolf doesn't eat her

The woods is also where my witch girl hangs out (still undecided if she's evil or not)

I used this original illustration in the book to build this homesick page around

Ticking clock, wilting flowers... 

The lost key

The Wolf's Page
