A sweet fairy has a new home. She dances for joy at the warm light coming from her big pumpkin abode. Her dress is in tatters and her hair is a mess, but she now has her very own pumpkin. You can continue to make more chapters to this story. This is a happy ending for this little gal. It is a watercolor I did some time ago and it has been forgotten until now.
I used a font called Worstveld Sling…this is the italic version. I love the simplicity. It
is very legible and all I did was add an additional stroke. I laid it on the bottom half of the painting but it was getting lost in some places. So I made a new transparent layer and tinted some areas with the soft yellow to eliminate the visual clutter. This took a little time to finish the touch ups on this piece because the edge was kind of raggedy. I smoothed it over a little with a soft brush of orange to tie the pieces together. I erased the white background around the border because I wanted the transparency to reveal the cool jagged edge of the painting which I think is very appealing. I did not want it on a white border. When you print on textile, it is very preferable to use the PNG format, so that way you can also put it on different colors of fabrics.
I would like to see this art on a baby’s outfit. I think that could work. I am happy with this as I think it’s a good fit of text and subject. I think this could easily become a story. Of course, now that I look back it is somewhat autobiographical. Did you know there are fairies living under logs and in abandoned bird nests?
