Under The Wire

(this is not my dark angel, but a little fae that I did several years ago)


As per usual, I am just under the wire for completing my angel piece for the ADO Monthly Challenge. I set a goal to try and do every challenge this year and got off to a rocky start by missing the January one! This challenge, as can be seen is angels



I decided to do a dark angel. This piece is one of my Kindreds, so I did not want her to be too dark, but I didn't want her all light and fluff either. She is shown below as a WIP, with her gown (antique beaded netting), and the very rough templates I made for her wings.




Below, she is getting her hair "done". Messy, messy job.




Done! I am going to have to figure out what my hubby did to the settings in my camera when he borrowed it, as I am not happy at all with how my pics are turning out.






I truly believe we all have angels in our lives. Just as we are so unique, angels must be too - perhaps not all have earned their white wings yet...just like this little gal

Now I have to find my manual for my camera and retake some pics so I can list her in my Etsy shop


By the way - did I vaguely hear the word "Spring" mentioned recently? Last weekend, (no snow, sunny) I would have believed it. Today? Not so much

Wow, Sue! She is just gorgeous. You are so talented! I love her face. :) And I know exactly how you feel about the camera. It seems like I get things working and someone flips something or changes something and all my pics are ick. :) Happy weekend!

Your dolls are GORGEOUS! And I sympathize with the hair situation...that's why I always make mine out of paperclay, I've never quite gotten the hang of wigmaking! Her hair turned out lovely, by the way!

I love the way you did her wings and the dress is just perfect! Everything about her is adorable!
It does look cold, but spring can't be too far off.

She's beautiful Sue... not too dark but just a little bit.

I believe also we have angels in our lives.... I just have to think about Renee and know it's true.

Sue,
She is gorgeous! I love her in every way. There is something so special about your dolls :)
You have oodles of SNOW!
We were promised a storm on Saturday but luckily it passed by. Today we are having a Spring like day, so I think I will take advantage and spruce up the front yard.

She's beautiful Sue! Deadlines...I think there is a reason that dead is in the word! Or should it be dread? Hugs to you,

Sue, she is beautiful. She has such a thoughtful expression. I wonder what is going on in her mind. Oh and tell Hubby no more borrowing the camera! :)
