Enchanted with the fairies

I think these fairies are like potato chips, I can't stop with just one! Here's a picture of one I did for my hair stylist! She's a creative soul, and I just thought she needed one of her own!
For her face, Maria herself is beautiful, so I used her picture. I made a photocopy and coated it with diamond glaze front and back. I cut it out and sewed it on the doll body and beaded around it.

The body I painted with lumiere paint, and mottled with craft paint and Staz-on ink and stamps. I then used Glimmer Mist sprays, and beads, charms, suede fabric. I glued butterfly wings together to have sequins on both sides. I added dolls hair with sewing and Fabri-tac glue. Maria has a pretty tattoo, so her fairie got one too, added with a Pitt artist pen. My favorite addition is the little scissors charm in her hand- they really open and close.

I've recently realized that making dolls is an addictive habit. I see you've been hooked. Maria is one lucky hair dresser. This recent doll is fantastically wonderful.
