As a child, I was always intrigued by the darker green rings in the grass with mushrooms here and there. They usually appeared after a lightning storm. My Mom said they were fairy rings. The first challenge in my new group called Art Squared is "Mystical". The theme immediately brought back memories of those fairy rings.
This little fairy is early to the meeting. The others are on their way as you can see from the shimmery swirls.
I used batiks as well as thread work and paint to try to make the mushrooms look 3 dimensional.
