There are many tangles that are reminiscent of plant life, and I thought those would be good to use. Also stars. Also big things with tiny people, and to me the tangle Artoo always looks big. "Fairies" to me means light and airy, flitty and flighty. My first attempt was more heavy and dark than I really wanted.

Second go at it. I tried some new tangles: Warble and Frondous (magically turned into wheat with a bit of fairy dust by this prairie girl!). Still a bit dark, although I like the little white "path" leading in from the bottom.

Third try lucky? Well, at least a little more successful. The tangle Aah! seemed rather fairy-like, and I kept the botanical influence. I also like this border; it seems somewhat like flower petals.
Maybe the faeries flitting about in my head are just a little oddball.
