Libby measures 24 ½” tall from the top of her wings, 21” from the top of her head. She has a body made from onsaburg cotton fabric. I’ve painted her face, legs and arms, and needle sculpted the fingers on her hands. She has a full head of hair made from soft sheep’s wool that I needle felted in place, to form one long pony tail to the side. I’ve given her a head band style halo made from vintage style gold tinsel garland, and attached it with long pear tipped corsage pins. I’ve made Libby’s gown and pantaloons are made out of cotton fabric that is trimmed with vintage style lace, and layered with tulle, and vintage linen. Her collar is made from hand crocheted vintage lace, which is hand sewn in place and finished with a vintage inspired metal button. I’ve made Libby’s wings from quilted cotton that has been painted and stiffened. I’ve hand sewn them in place on her back and included a loop for hanging.
This is a original 8 x 10 on gallery wrapped canvas mixed media painting created by me. I've incorporated a number of layers to create depth and a colorful background. I've added elements such as vintage hymnals, numbers and added texture looking effects to it. She is faceless because I wanted her to represent you! Sometimes in life the best moments are when we allow our hearts to be swept away. I really love how this turned out. The colors are vibrant and images almost seem to pop off the canvas. I hope you enjoy it too. The edges are painted and the entire painting has been sealed. It will come signed and dated.
