Wee little baby fairies!

I have been busy creating! I have tethered myself to my art studio. It has not been easy. Life stuff seems to worm its way into my art time. How can I organize my life so there is nothing to do BUT art!! 🙂

I have just completed two little wee baby fairies. I am holding on to these for a little while so as to make some companions. I need their inspiration and they want some little friends and sisters. I really enjoy the babies. I keep getting drawn back to creating these little wee ones. They make me smile.

I created Marigold first, she is in yellow. Then her sister, Lily, was created in pink. I am working on a third perhaps in blue or green. They will all have names of flowers.



Here are a few photos of these sweet ones.

OOAK Fairy “Nymeria”


What a beautiful day it was today. I tend to want to spend much time outdoors enjoying the sunshine. I do most of my art work after dinner and into the wee hours of the night. This way I can enjoy the sunshine and get things done during the day. And while everyone sleeps I am up playing with fairies. 😉

Here is my latest little fairy creation! She is a sleeping fairy and rests atop a handmade pink silk pillow.

Purple was my mood for this fairy. With the recent Royal Wedding, I couldn’t help but feel in the mood for purple. Purple is royalty. And all little girls love purple. I believe when I was young it was my favorite color.

Her name is Nymeria (prounounced “Ny-meer-ia”). She measures about 6 1/2 inches.

Her dress is hand dyed silk accented with sterling silver glitters and pretty feather weight ribbons. Her shoes are also dusted with sterling silver glitter. It i so hard not to get carried away with this sterling glitter. I just love it. It shines like white gold.
