OOAK Child Fairy Bluebell Zahra

I have just finished this little beauty! I named her Bluebell Zahra.  Zahra means white flower and the bluebell is a perfect flower for her colors!

Whew!  she was tedious to work on.  Her outfit …..and believe me, adding glitter in just the right places, one little bitty glitter dot at a time with a toothpick … yikes my eyes. I must wear my magnifying glasses.  She just was a treasure though to work on.  After she was finished I was so thrilled with her.  Her colors are so beautiful.  I love the white on dolls and adding a beautiful contrast color just makes them so pretty.

I also did something new with the eyes and used glitter.  This particular glitter is called blacklight. its amazing color of rich deep purple with smokey black powder in the glitter.  Its very cool.  I will be experimenting with eyes and using glitter to make some really cool eyes for my fairies.  Perhaps leaning towards more fantasy fairy look.  Trying out some new things and think it will be lots of fun! I love how her eyes turned out and if she is in just the right lighting, they sparkle across the room.  I took this photo in the sunlight, but when I had this doll on my art costuming table, and the light hit her at the right angle, across the room I could see her eyes glimmering!

She will not be listed in my Etsy shop. She sold soon after I finished her and did not make it into my Etsy Shop.  But stay tuned for more little beauties to come. Ive been getting a lot of time in my studio lately and really enjoying my focus.

I love making little fairy shoes and this one has little fairy socks too.  Oh the possibilities are endless when I start costuming these dolls.  Lately I have switched from tibetan hair to mohair.   I like it much better. It is easier to get some really cute fairy hair styles and my ideas about fairy hair …are that I want their hair to be “not so perfect”.  If that makes sense.    Its a fairy, its magic, its fantasy and the hair is just so pretty when its not placed just so perfectly …. this doesn’t mean that I am not wanting their hair to look beautiful, I just want the hair to be a little more fantasy and fairy like.

I will be doing more sitting posed and open eye ones for little while longer before going back to baby fairies. I need a little break from the babies at this time.  however, often when I start a face I am unsure what direction I will be going in and often they dictate to me what they want to be. So who knows, babies may be born.

I ordered some fun supplies for my next doll. Her colors are going to be fabulous and I can already see this next doll in my vision.  Its only January yet, but out here in the Sonoran desert we have had some great warm weather and it feels like spring, so colors are calling out to me, garden colors. This next one may be a garden fairy.

Thanks for stopping by to see my work.   Many times I want to keep my creations, like this one…. but I just know they are needed out in the world to spread love and lots of fairy magic.

This little one is going to Belgium. She has a long journey to get there, but she just can’t wait to fly!

OOAK Fairy Primrose Poppy Dawn

This little one was a treasure to work on.  I named her Primrose Poppy Dawn.  I think she loves gardens and she is up before dawn to see the flowers blooming when the sun comes up.

She took a while because I was mesmerized by working on her outfit. Her little dress, the pale green fabric, is vintage 50s scarf material. it is so delicate and sheer and was just wonderful for fairy costuming. I found this at a vintage pickins market and I grabbed about 7 colors she had.  I love this fabric for my fairies.

She has lots of beautiful glitter. If you like fancy fairies, this is the fairy for you. If I was a little girl and was looking at fairies to choose from, this one would be the one I would hope for.  She has a storybook look to her and has a garden of colors that are just so soft and delicate.

Stop by my Etsy Shop to see more photos of her!

 

 

OOAK Fairy Honeydew

I have just finished this little one.  She may be slightly larger than my last few by a tiny bit.   She is costumed in greens accented with oranges and golds.  I named her Honeydew fairy.   I love the wand on this one.  Lots of sparkles on her.  I am loving this new glitter I am using now.  Its fantastic.  Be sure to visit my Etsy Shop.  She’s a cutie!

OOAK Fairy Lavender Rose

First doll for the new year.  My back is pretty much back to normal so I can sit and sculpt without any pain.  I am really enjoying my time back in the art studio again.  I hope to keep my creativity rolling and have some more dolls coming up soon.

This one is costumed in blues and purples.  Lots n lots of glitter on her.

Her little shoes are so adorable.  I think the next one I would like to do shoes again.  They are so sweet when they have shoes on.

Last Fairy for 2015!

I have been absent with a very bad back injury.  Recovery was long and slow and I could not sculpt.  I had to just rest and heal and let my body recover.  I am now about 90% better.  Enough where I can now sit and sculpt again.  Im so happy to get one last doll done before the end of the year.

During my injury I managed to take a workshop on glitter.  By Art Glitter.com. Wow, fabulous glitters and I am stocked full of beautiful colors for fairies. Her glitter is top notch amazing stuff and worth every penny.  So on this little one I couldnt help but use lots of sparkles.  Her photos just dont show how she really sparkles.  So adorable!

She is listed in my Etsy Shop.   Her little outfit has stars.   to light up the new year!

Snowy Holiday Scenery Jars

Short break from fairies to get a little motivated for the holiday season.  I love snowman and Christmas trees.  I made 3 snow globe jars with handmade bottle brush trees and hand sculpted snowmen.

Stop by my etsy Shop to see them!  They are now available. I have one more I will be adding as well.

Very fun to make! Little tedious but really fun to make a snowy scenery inside a jar!  I suppose if you desire, you can move the snow around by shaking the jar.

OOAK Baby Fairy Pink Ice

etsy

After my Winter ice fairy in beautiful icy blue, I felt she needed a sister.  Pink Ice Fairy, Aspen Rae was born.   Aspen Rae was sculpted at the same time as Sparrow Rae.

She is so sweet. her little blond wispy hair is adorable on her.  Her wand has 4 swarovski crystals on it.  two at the top and two at the bottom.  Along with some icy stags on the bottom.

Look for her in my Etsy Shop at 6:45pm Arizona time. This blog will be updated with her Etsy link.
