For the Love of Fairies

What fun this is! I am participating in the Love of Legends Tour hosted by Crafting Con and Phat Quarters, thanks for stopping by to check out my page.

I have never done a blog tour, but it was on my bucket list for the year. I admittedly have already fallen behind, but am hoping to catch up and catch on pretty quickly. I can't really recall how I found out about it, but when I saw the theme - Legends - I knew it would be fun. 

(What young lady doesn't like to wear wings on occasion?)

I don't recall being big into Legends as I grew up (ok, Sasquatch and mermaids were always a thing) - but my girls are huge fans of many areas. The only catch? Unlike many of my fellow bloggers this tour, I have teens! Truthfully, many teens are way past the 'whole mermaid, fairy, dragon' concept - but not mine. In fact I have a list at my desk of the new Dragon books as requested by my oldest. 

As I thought about what Legend to focus on my mind could only think of Mermaids. Now, I love mermaids, but they seem to be pretty prolific lately so I thought a little more. That and I searched the internet for fabulous designs - and landed on fairies! Who doesn't love a fairy? (Who doesn't think of Tinkerbell when they hear the word?) I love the concept and idea of fairies - but even more than that - I love the diversity of them. From Pixies to Fauns, Merpeople and Leprechauns, they all fall into the fairy category. (Did you know that? I did not.)

To take it a step further I narrowed my focus down to fairies that teens would like. A little whimsy, a little elegance, and a little color. When I went searching for the perfect design, I couldn't settle on just one, so you get three!  

I love the watercolor effect of the one above, while the design below is much more dense and a filigree pattern. Both are stunning and a big hit with the girls in my household.
