Need to find fairy images

I need to find a fairy that I can put in a picture where there is a little girl looking up at a 45 degree angle. I am trying to make a digital painting and the mother took the picture and sent it to me and she is sideways kind of looking up. I can't paint her looking up at nothing, that would be dorky. But she likes fairies. I am having a hard time finding a fairy or enchanted forest that is not scary looking or a fairy that is not to "sexy". She needs to be what a 10 year old would like.

Can anyone help with a site?

Thanks alot

Re: Need to find fairy images

A fairy is very easy to make. Find a good butterfly picture with some colorful wings, and add them on the back of a girl with the correct pose. Ta-Da! Instant fairy.

I did this to my niece, much to her chagrin.

That's great, OlBaldy. Dragonsfly wings do make great fairy wings.
