Damselfly done......

Well she's done and I have sent her on her way to my swap partner.

My partner likes shades of purple so......
It was very hard getting a good picture because she is fairly large......her wing span is about 15 inches and she's about 16+ inches in length. Her wings and body were spot dyed with rust from steel wool. I then dabbed gold paint on her wings to give them a bit more colour. Her body and head are covered with Stef Francis 5400 rayon thread. Her middle is covered with a bit of vintage beaded trim. The beads are in shades of blue and mauve. On her head is a small piece of gold vintage lace with a small purple swarovski crystal in the middle. Her face is coloured with pencil and crayon.

She looks very Art - Deco........maybe I was channeling Erté.


The light was terrible for taking pictures as we have had rain almost non stop. We've broken the all time record for rain in May.

Take care:)
