This is the first of two angel/doll/spirit guides I am making for someone I care about.

This one started to come together when I was looking through my stash for something else!  I found the top, which was a pendant I purchased on clearance.  I thought this would make a perfect head.  The next thing I found that I loved was wings…which ended up being too much.  The doll was complete without them.

The baby beads are from my baby bracelet from when I came home from the hospital.  Can you imagine?  They are so old and have survived so many moves.  So many.

I know she will love and treasure this…she already told me so.

Details:

  1. Domino:  Painted with Liquid Metal – Silver.  Sides were glued and irregular glass beads were adhered.
  2. Head:  Pendant, with square fabric button sprayed with Glimmer Mist – Purple.  Face was sized and cut with Silhouette, edges colored with Distress Ink – Concord.
  3. Butterfly:  This was a green thumbtack.  I removed the back and painted with LM – Silver and Precious Metal Color – Blue Lagoon.
  4. Under the Butterfly:  Jewelry finding.
  5. Legs:  Silver is a jewelry finding.  In each, there are two colors of blue organza ribbon and one light blue cording.  All are knotted at the ends.
  6. Loop:  Blue three stand necklace.
