Wait no more, folks! An electronic version of The Flute Keeper, Book 1 of The Flute Keeper Saga, is now available on Amazon! Author Ashley Setzer has created a magical realm of Fay and Slaugh, pixies and hobgoblins, giants, dryads and one half-human who must save the world from evil powers. Kristen, Ashley and I will be bringing Faylinn to life in Abby's nursery and we hope to make it as magical and beautiful as it is written in Ashley's books!
My sister-in-law Kristen's best friend has written an amazing 5-book fantasy series that is set in a beautiful enchanted forest-type place. Though this series is unpublished, I have had the privilege of reading it and it is now at the top of my favorites! Since first reading the books, Kristen has dreamed of making this fantasy-world a reality in her baby's nursery!
I love this book! Two thumbs up!
So, I'm going to be a first-time aunt ANY DAY NOW (c'mon Abby, we're all waiting for you)! I am so excited! We are driving up to Oklahoma this weekend and I will be adding the finishing touches to the nursery... and by finishing touches, I mean painting a giant tree in the corner of the room. For now I'm doing some last minute projects that will add the perfect touch to the nursery.
I brought in the dragonflies to tie in Abby's bedding (shown in my previous post). I used the glitter glue (also used below) to make Ivywild shimmery, and more magical! I also tied in all of the other colors that I have used in Abby's room so far. Some green here, some pink there, some blue here... and this painting ties it all in!
After I painted it I realized it kind of looks like a sky at sunset and the grass that the castle is sitting on... or maybe that's just me... but it was totally an accident.
I didn't know if it existed, but I looked for it anyway... glow in the dark paint! On the bottle it says that you can mix it with regular acrylic (light colored) paints, so that's just what I did! I also used glitter glue to make the eyes and highlight the wings, making a perfect addition to the enchanted nursery theme!
So, what is a "moon fly?" I turned my question to Ashley Setzer, author of The Flute Keeper Saga who said, "It's just your average cute little bug-eyed critter with a huge glowing abdomen." They are used frequently throughout the series to light the way in the dark and I thought they would be perfect to paint on a light switch... get it? And then on top of that, they glow in the dark... sweet!
