The Digital Dozen asking me to join and my first post going out today, now that is a fairy tale! Today's post is another sneaky Pete double duty between the January 12 Film prompt and my first Digital Dozen of this month's theme of 'Fairy Tales'.So what is a fairy tale anyway? That's the question we get to answer for my first Digital Dozen week. I thought about many ways to approach this, and started with a little Wikipedia research. Wikipedia says:
"A fairy tale (pronounced /ˈfeəriˌteɪl/) is a type of short story that typically features European folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments."
So my very favourite story growing up that I think fits was Alice in Wonderland. I read this one so many times that my hardcover actually fell apart. Someday I really need a new one, it's been too long. Now Alice isn't a Grimm or other classic fairy tale story but fits the description perfectly. I decided to attempt my first ever series, so this will be Part 1 of 5 Alice inspired manis over the next five days. There is just too many great images in Alice, that I really couldn't think of anywhere I'd rather focus.
For my first look, I created this tourqoise to white gradient and topped it with just one coat of Wicked Polish Hung Over The Rainbow.
I know I kinda went off the rails on this...but I just went with the flow and I love my little piece of Wonderland wilderness! Please check out what all my girls attempted for their tales and check back tomorrow for more of mine!
