BBArtisans Team October Challenge - Fairy Tale Inspiration



White Rabbit ACEO by Goodnight Owl Art
The BBArtisans team challenge for the month is brought to you by Kaili of KAW! Studios and GoodnightOwlArt "I am sure we were all raised with bedtime stories, books or films that touched on a realm outside of our own. Use the inspiration of fairy tales from your youth to create something fantastic, whimsical or unseelie."


When I started my art journaling, I bought a book that was very similar to the storybeader's name, called The Story Teller.  It has both illustrations and plates in it, and I was going to use it as my art journal.  


But I was enjoying my composition books so much, that I made one specifically for the year 2012.  It's almost full - I probably have 20 pages left.  I love how it expands but stays in place with a little help of ribbons I wrapped around it.


For this month's challenge, I used a page from the Story Teller book in my art journal (the composition book).  Underneath, I wrote what happened when I broke my ankle.  Yes, I'm no Cinderella, especially now with my foot in a splint.  What an appropriate time to go back into this book of story tales that I bought!
