' A Midsummer Nights Dream ' by Sue Trickey

I continue to be busy working on new artworks. This artwork the theme of Fairies was created using Mixed Media.

I was inspired by a vintage book cover as I started to create my design. I was asked to create a card design on the theme of faries for one of the Gloucestershire shops that retail my cards. I have added text from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" around the edge of my design, this was taken from some vintage Shakespeare books. I created my top fairy including real pressed flower petals from my garden for her skirt and hair. The lower fairy was taken from some vintage sheet music that belonged to my grandmother. Most of the background colour was added using coloured pencil. I love combining vintage and new together to create something unique. I finished this piece in Dec 2019.

I am pleased that it has worked well as a new card design for 2020 and is now retailing in many shops that I supply in the Gloucestershire area. I shall add this card to my shop here.
