She’s finished, or just about. I have her label to sew in and need to spray her face with fixative and stitch her basket to her hands. Otherwise, she’s ready to take her bow! She will be listed in my Etsy Shop late this week. I have to haul out the back drop and the lighting to get her good pictures done, so that won’t happen until Wednesday.
I am so pleased with her wings, which I finished up yesterday. I saw a picture of wings by Deb Wood on the A-for-Artistic website and just missed signing up for her class. I will definitely take it the next time it is offered. I muddled through creating this wings with help from the class I took at Art Fest last year.
She has ears, unlike most of my dolls lately, because I wanted to use yarn for her hair that I got at Hill Country Weavers last weekend. I’ll explain the relationship in another post.
And here is Falerina with her basket of flowers. I went shopping for the materials in my studio! Gotta love it when you don’t have to buy anything to complete a piece!
She got her gladiator shoes today. She even has toenails, which you can’t see because she’s kneeling on them.
Here’s a back shot of her wings, without her hair to get in the way.
And a close-up of her basket. Happy Spring!
Speaking of spring – a few shots from my garden. The flowers are definitely blooming.
My patio at 10am this morning.
Purple salvia in my back bed. I will post more pictures of this bed a bit later. I’ve got three varieties of salvia mixed together with rosemary, lavender, Mexican Petunia and a couple of trees. The salvias are going nuts! It must be the compost I added this year, cause the Hot-Lips salvia has already grown 3 feet from where I wacked it back and the red salvias have put on the longest flower spikes I’ve ever seen. They are going to pop open any day now and it will be a stunning display.
The new flower bed is taking off. The mist flowers and the copper canyon daisy are thrilled with their surroundings.
