  1. Well, as it's a fairy, you can colour it in and submit for next week's theme! Can't wait to see it. I love how the fairy makes the "normal" sized girl look like a giant. Another super interesting piece, Lissa. That's a really cute lantern. I'm loving the books, sock, etc. It's going to be magical, as always, should you chose to colour it in. Thank you so much for adding this marvel to our lantern picnic! What fun!

  2. Lovely lantern piece Lissa, with lots of interesting details. As Michael noticed too, great contrast between the 'giant' girl and the smaller fairy.

  3. I'm wondering is it real or is she dreaming? You've drawn me in and I really want to know more.

  4. Oh, I love this, it inspires wonder. Such fun details too, the round door top, hanging basket, socks and shoes taken off.

    I hope you share it when you, if you, color it.

  5. It's delightful - besides the figures. I love the details in the books, bowls, and especially the teapot and teacups.
    I'm feeling that she is just in from the cold, has pulled off her damp boots and socks and the fairy is warming her toes with the lantern. . . . . . all remaining is sipping a hot cup of herbal tea and she will be fine.

    1. yes, exactly, she came in from the cold rain, though as you can see the door is perhaps not large enough for her, I guess she can crawl in.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  7. I'm always mesmerized by your sketches/illustrations. Your ability to include details the way you do is amazing and fascinating. Every one of yours leaves one asking questions about it....what's the story, what gave you this idea....why did you do that, etc. Well done Lissa and I can't wait to see it colored in. :)

    1. I already decide the girl came into this fairy's place but also perhaps she has been here before...

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  8. Lissa,
    There is a story here. I can start to see it coming. Love how you sketch your piece. This reminds me of Alice when she was too big - stuck in a room she couldn't get out of.
    Can't wait to see it finished.
    blessings

    1. I didn't even think about Alice, just about fairies and their small sizes

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  10. Wonderful lantern piece, Lissa. I agree with Michael...you can add colour and use it for the next theme too. :)
