Paper Doll Faerie Faye

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. They are usually permanently affixed.

This is just one style that I enjoy doing.

This pretty girl is Faerie Faye. Faye is the very French word for faerie or if you prefer, fairy. I simply love the more archaic spelling. 

Her cost is $38.00 + Shipping and may be found on my Etsy Store by clicking HERE

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

Thank you!
