Flower Fairy Digital Sketch

This is one of two digital sketches I'm adding to my digital sketchbook today. I'm calling it the Flower Fairy.

Flower Fairy Digital Art

This began as a digital photo I took last summer. I have a window box outside one of my studio windows and I had planted some Vinca there that was in full bloom. I also always have a little resin fairy perched on the ledge of the box. Not sure if she's sulking or daydreaming, but she's cute either way.

I played around with several filters in PhotoScape before finally giving it the sketch-like effect. I really love how the purplish hue in the background contrasts against the white tones of the fairy. And I also like the many flower petals and leaves help to create texture in the background.

I'm also linking this to the Collage Obsession "Many" Challenge this week.
