Truly a magical book!

by Ruth O'Neill on 3/25/2009

Fairy lovers will enjoy this book tremendously. When I received this book, I immediately started looking at it to see how far the author had gone in art instruction. I was pleasantly surprised at the detailed instructions and suggestions about creating my own fairy art. Not only does the book go into concepts of drawing fairies and imps, it also instructs on color and shape basics and various mediums too. I expect to be quite busy creating some of my own magical creations! The thing I did not expect was to open to FAIRY FASHION PAGES that contained (more or less) PAPER DOLL OUTFITS! So cool! My sister is a fairy lover from way back but she is also a paper doll nut too. I purchased this book as a present for her 50th birthday (and theme for her party too), but I love it so much and it boosts my creativity so much I am keeping the one I bought and buying her another one. The final plus of this purchase is the price I got on it. I didn't have over $24 to spend and I was pleased to get it at just about half price. Especially considering that I'm buying another one, the price is right.
