CQ Rose Garden Fairy Spirit Doll
This year I have explored many different hobbies and Rose Garden Fairy includes several of these new learned techniques. They are Crazy Quilting, Beading, Hand Dying Lace and Ribbons and creating Clay Faces. I started creating Spirit of Friendship Doll in May of this year. I truly enjoy creating them and have given them to family and friends. "Rose Garden Fairy" I have made for me. I especially love my "Rose Garden "so "Rose Garden Fairy" is a reflection of my gardening passion. I hand dyed the rose lace around her waist. Her sweet face I created with Kato Polyclay and I painted it with PearlEx Pigment Powder . Beading is also a new found passion so I created many of the flowers with beads. She has several Silk Ribbon Roses surrounding her "Lace Beaded Heart". Of course you always see butterflies in your garden so My Spirit Doll had to have one too. Her wings are took from a silk ribbon flower arrangement I found in the basement. vbg I loved how they make her sparkled. I plan to hang her in "My Creating Room" to admire while my fingers are busy creating more Spirit of Friendship Doll, Crazy Quilts and heaven know what else. vbg Creating pieces of art brings a big smile to my face and makes me feel good. I hope my special gifts to others will also bring these same feeling to them too.
