"Brighid, the Wind's Bride" is wearing a veil of paper dragonflies and a dress made of embossed decorative paper embellished with paper dragonflies, butterflies, leaves and blossoms
Welcome! As part of the Art Doll Elements Challenge, I chose to create "Brighid the Wind's bride" representing the element of air . I decided to make her the object of affection of the wind, as if the wind were an "entity" itself, unseen but whose presence could be felt as it wraps around her.
Brighid's body is made of polymer clay and her wavy bobbed hair is made of dark brown mohair. Her dress is made entirely of an embossed decorative paper (sewn and glued on) with off white and cream colored blossoms, butterflies, leaves and dragonflies adorning her dress. Her veil of dragonflies and bouquet are made from water color paper and are embellished with tiny swarovski crystals and silver dipped head pins. I added the tiniest bit of ultra fine crystal glitter to each of the dragonflies wings her veil (unfortunately you can't really see it in the photos). I still have plans to add onto her dress and when she is finished she will be making her way into a shadow box /alter piece for display purposes :)
In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud
and your form and color are the way I love them.
You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips
and in your life my infinite dreams live..
Floral bouquet with two streams of cascading butterflies
