Forest Floor...True Color Journal

FOREST FLOOR
I wandered into the forest while in my dream.
Just to see what the floor would bring.
Leaves and feathers and pods I found.
Perfect treasures for a fairy's crown.


Sketch from my desk you saw earlier this week.
It changed before coming home with me Friday. When the hair turned to leaves, I knew she was the forest floor fairy.
This morning, I woke up with the poem in my head. Had to get up and start.
The tree in the foreground is from an over painted paper left from when I was preparing the gift journals.
I'm thinking I will add the poem as an overlay on vellum. No vellum on hand today though so...
More later,
Sharon
