Fairy Tales

Hello Fellow Taggers - thank you so much for your comments on my silhouette tag last week, I really appreciated them all.

This week, for our Fairy Tales theme, I am using a childhood favourite of mine; Rapunzel. I loved having long hair, I always wanted it so long I could sit on it. It never seemed to reach that length tho', haha. I also loved my dolls having long hair and loved to style it.

My tag is very simple. I drew the details with a micron pen and then cloured with my Inktense pencils. I rubbed some gold Gleam wax onto Rapunzel's hair but the shine doesn't show in the photo I'm afraid. I used a write-all pen to write what the Prince used to say to Rapunzel so that he could visit her in her prison tower.



The story was first published circa 1812 and was written by The Brothers Grimm.

Thanks for looking. Take care and have a good week. ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

  9. Well look at your gorgeous Rapunzel, which prince could possibly resist her?
    And my hair never grew very long, sob sob, not even middle of back.
