Ooooh, painting is getting funner and funner (sorry I know that's not a real word, but hey, it works!) I've always been sooo nervous about painting and feel so much more comfortable with pencil crayons, but lets face it, not many surfaces take too well to pencil crayons! Today I finished my little woodland ornament and I've named her Fawna.
Fawna's head is sculpted from paperclay and I've painted it a pale champagne blonde shade. For her features, I used fabric paint just because I love the colour mixtures I can get with them. Her wooden spool belonged to my dear Nannykins which she dug out from her wonderful treasure chest... I mean sewing box:) Thank heavens she has a bunch more!! By the way, it's her 93rd birthday tomorrow and she's still sewing up a storm!
She wears a tiny lock of auburn mohair onto which I glued two Czech glass flower beads. A shimmery organza bow adds a hint of sparkle at her neck.
Two more ornaments are still in the works for now and I'm also working on three new Poppets. Will be back to post more pic's soon: )
