Fly

Several years ago I attended the wedding of my poodle's breeder's daughter.  The theme of the wedding was medieval and everything was beautiful.  It was extra special to me because you all know how much I love dogs and Saber and Fifi, brother and sister standard poodles, were the ring bearer and the flower girl.  Now, as a child, I had this fairytale dream in my head of getting married and having a long flowing train that my dogs would  carry down the aisle for me.  I think that idea must have come from seeing Lady and the Tramp!  Anyway,  they were both perfect little attendants and sat very quietly and still throughout the entire ceremony which was about 45 minutes long.  About 20 minutes into the ceremony, Fifi sat her little flower basket down in front of her.  She was so pretty and I just love this photo of her.  But I thought it would be fun to add to the fantasy and give her some fairy wings.  I have written a tutorial with a link to fairy wings and pointers on how to add them.  Be sure to check it out if you want to try it!

Used the November Swirlydoos kit for most of this, featuring House of Three Parisian Anthology.  Also used lots of Peacock Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and Distress Victorian Rose ink, Kaisercraft pearls and bling, Prima flowers, Dusty Attic chippy painted with Tattered Angels Tinsel Town Glimmer Glam.  Those are K & Co butterflies. 

The journal verse:
 Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894
