Wings!





You can see what I've been doing this week, having too much fun in Jean Bernard's free wings class. The individual wings you see are my first two attempts, one with a tutorial Jean shared with us by "Shar", and the second with Jean's own design. The sweet little elfin creature is a doll I made from Sherry Goshon's Echlin pattern some time ago, who now sports a set of wings of her own! Jean's method is so very easy, using a craft film called Textiva, micro marbles, and glitter. I repeat, TOO MUCH FUN! You can find her free class here: http://www.classheaven.com/jeans_free_wings.htm

Sweet Mary, your wings came out so well! I love both, but think the ones on your darling doll are JUST PERFECT for her! Isn't Jean's class FUN? I always love her designs & teaching methods! You need to make YOURSELF some pretty wings! An angel NEEDS wings, you know!

Hi Mary, those wings are lovely and so perfect as Kai says for your doll. The doll itself is beautiful. I wish you would make more dolls as your face painting is always so beautiful and expressive.

The wings are pretty, but your interpretation of Sherry's pattern is SO sweet. Your dolls always seem to have such a pretty, wistful quality about them, as if they really ARE from another, nicer world.

I am sorry to hear about your hands Mary. I hope this spell passes SOON.

LOL! I had to delete my last coment- once again I forgot Isabella was logged into Blogger.

Love your wings! They are just beautiful and look pefect on your Echlin.

I hope your hands feel better soon. I tried a couple of the creams recently- one that smelled and one that didn't, neither of which did much good.

I've been having a scroll through your blog Mary...

Love your Echlin....this was the first doll I made when I decided I wanted to try my hand at doll making. It was also my initiation to on-line classes... I was thrilled with what I was able to accomplish...and loved learning the face drawing. It was the picture of the face on Sherry's Echlin that really made me decide to see if it was possible for a rookie to give one a go.... so glad I did.

I see that you have known several of the women on the photo a day group for some time now....
