Mixed Media Collage Vignette of Faerie "Wisdom" ~ SOLD


My paper doll faerie named Wisdom, is a chip board doll within her own little land in a cardboard vignette, to which I have paper collaged, and embellished with natural items as well as that which I created. 

There is an actual crystal nesting in the corner on the stand.

The real roses are tiny ones that I coated in Mod Podge.

The Holy Stone at her feet is one that I created using clay and paint. 

"In Italian Witchcraft the holed stone is associated with fairies, and often referred to as the holy stone. It is considered a doorway, or key to the doorway, into the fairy kingdom. In Italian folk magic, it is believed these stones have the power to bind a fairy to one's service for a length of time." Wikipedia

QUOTE: "Wisdom entereth not into a malicious mind."
Rabelais (French writer 1494-1553)

13 tall x 5 wide ~inches ~ added width at top brings it up to 8 inches wide.







All Is Love ~ A Faerie

"All is Love" is a sweet little faerie who resides in her cottage in a magical land. I have painted a bit of chip board for my faerie. The stand is collaged and embellished in a way that only she designed. The little quote is:

"The gift is small, but love is all"
anonymous.

7 tall x 5 wide (inches)

$48.00 + Shipping

This creation can be found at my Etsy Store.

But if you do not shop on Etsy and wish to buy her, email me at christinelefever@comcast.net and we can take it from there.






Tillie, My Queen Anne Doll with Mache head, forearms and hands and a Cloth Body ~SOLD

Tillie is my rather fancy, 19 inch Queen Anne doll. She is for sale at my Etsy Store. This doll has been created with extremely stylish, silk garments and frivolously fun coiffures, but this particular model prefers a mere house dress and mob cap, at least of lace.









My Queen Anne Doll, Tess ~ SOLD

Tess is a cloth and mache doll. She is my design wherein I had a mold made of her so that she can be reproduced in liquid mache. Two of this model were in the film Felicity, complements of Warner Brothers a few years ago. The dolls are shown in the Colonial shop just behind the two performers portraying the little girl stars, one in particular, Felicity. (Said actor is the now renowned and wonderful Shailene Woodley.) Felicity is of course one of the American Girl Dolls!

My Tess is a 19 inch doll. In this case she is dressed in her Colonial styled shift and stays, over which is her pockets.

I see in this photo where a portion of one of her sleeves looks rather like a tube, but it's just a wrinkle. I only just saw this! Gulp.

Periodically I make for my Etsy Store a Tess. She is there now.

Paper Doll Faerie Raisa

This is a fun style of making paper dolls wherein I paint a piece of chip board white, on both sides, after which I cut out a picture of a beautiful old-fashioned person and paste it onto the prepared chip board. Next, I cut it out. To that I add paint in order to transform it into my painting. I love to embellish these "paper dolls" with laces, vintage netting, silks and other ribbons. Of course, I make their wings of print-outs of butterflies, and sometimes I create an insect-like wing using paper and pen. My faeries must either stand beside a vignette that I create, or upon a stand that I create. They are usually permanently affixed.

This is just one style that I enjoy doing.

This little beauty is called Raisa which means Rose in Russian.

She is $38.00 + Shipping and to purchase at my Etsy Store. Click HERE.

If you do not shop on Etsy and wish to purchase from me, email me at christinelefever@comcast.net.

Thank you!
