I have loved ever since a little girl fairy tales and their beautiful pictures, so it was a hard choice to pick just one of those.
I ended up with a tale from a book of Russian folk stories: Beautiful Vasilisa.
Creating a piece of art from this topic was a long process, but this evening I got it finished. Rather than making a card I chose to make a spread of this to my scrap book.
The story is about a brave, dutiful and - of course - beautiful young woman, who's mother dies. In her dying bed mother gives her a small doll, which eventually helps her with cruel stepmother, stepsisters and evil witch Baba Jaga. At the end she needs no more help from the doll to get married with a tsar! :)
In left page I used watercolour pencils and white acrylic colour. The background of right page is made with acrylic colours. To the middle I actually copied a page of text with ornamental frames from the book and coloured and stamped it. The figure of the girl I drew with ink and watercolours.
Thanks for reading :) Have a nice weekend!
