Spring is in the Air

Here is Mrs. Bird finished in all her finery. It is so wonderful to be able to set her out of doors and photograph her among my new greening grass. Spring is finally here in New England. How appropriate to be able work on this dolly with her spring theme. She was done as part of a workshop by Katie Estvold and Joggles. I highly recommend taking a course with her. It was really fun and I picked up a few new techniques like painting and aging crepe paper in wonderful muted shades. Her costume is made totally from paper and she is sculpted from paper clay.
Here is a detail of her theatre with a little birdy perched on his swing.

And her crowning glory!
Happy Spring to you all.

I am filled with wanting to pop round and touch her..sometimes it is so frustrating that we are all so far apart!!!
She is soooo brilliant!!! wow I just adore the little bird too, and the colours...your Ladye of Spring, she is just perfect, I hope you are as pleased as punch!!!

Your dolly is delightful.The secrets of Spring that she reveals beneath her skirt and your choice of the light blue for the dress like the bright sky above is most befitting a Springtime Lady.
