Rapunzel Fairy Tale

I made this mixed-media page for the Mix It Monthly Art-Challenge November theme 'Rapunzel', which is the German name of the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. 
You can read the story HERE.
My interpretation of the story tells how the witch has got to the high tower without any stair, where Rapunzel was locked in. It went this way. The witch shouted: 
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, that I may climb thy golden stair".
I hand made my page's background with different pieces of scrap images and texts, a napkin and acrylics. The tower, the witch and Rapunzel I drew and painted with acrylic paints and ink pencils. Two texts were edited and added digitally on the work.
I'm linking the page also in Paint Party Friday Week 36, Year 7.
Thank you for stopping by and for the time you take to leave the comment.
Wishing everyone Happy PPF ❤
Sekatekniikalla tekemäni sivu on tulkintani Grimmin sadusta 'Tähkäpää/Persiljainen'. Siinä kerron, miten noita on päässyt Tähkäpään luokse korkeaan torniin, jossa ei ollut portaita. Hän huusi alhaalta:
"Tähkäpää, Tähkäpää laske alas hiuksesi, että voin kiivetä kuin kultaisia rappusia!"
Tein taustan käsin käyttäen leikekuvia ja tekstejä, servettiä ja akryylimaalia. Tornin, Tähkäpään ja noidan piirsin ja maalasin aktyyliväreillä ja värikynillä. Lopuksi editoin tekstit ja lisäsin digitaalisesti työhön.
Kiitos mielenkiinnosta. 
Satumaisen hyvää viikonloppua kaikille ❤

This is totally fabulous. That is such a very bad witch and such a very innocent looking Rapunzel. I love the background you've made to the tower (and the tower is great too) with the swirls and flowers and leaves and stars, just like in a fairy story. I love it.

A gorgeous page to interpret the fairy story.
The witch looks quite evil. The Grimm Brothers tales have a real dark side to them. Its good they have much nicer endings.
