How to Draw Fairies

(First you must find one.)

To find one, you might:

listen to moonbeams,

follow snails,

look behind wishes,


feel around under aspirations.

To draw a fairy, you must hold it in your heart and whisper your dreams to it. Only then will it trust you and let you see its essence.

Hold the fairy’s essence in your heart like a butterfly cupped in your hand. Offer it bird seed and chocolate so that it will linger.

After you have learned to balance this delicate creature in your heart, then you can begin to draw it. Open your eyes wide and hold on to your pencil gently. Let your pencil dance across the paper in a celebration of love and fairy dust.

Don’t linger here to long. This is a magical place and you are only granted admission for the duration of your enchantment.
