Arella, A Dazzling Christmas Angel



Just the sight of this little girl has me craving egg nog & humming Christmas carols.

Meet Arella. She is 16″ tall from the tip of her sweet annie halo to her base. She’s been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. Arella’s base is rag-stuffed & weighted so that she stands nicely on her own. She’s been made in the style of a stump doll, meaning she has no legs. Arella’s been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display. Her arms are button jointed allowing them to be slightly posed.
(I am still in the process of getting my picture-taking space set up in our new place, so please forgive the quality of these pictures. If you like Arella in the photographs, you’ll LOVE her in person. She is so breath-taking & sparkly!)

Arella’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her a perfect pout. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves.

Arella wears a white muslin blouse. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with a grey mother of pearl button at the neckline. Arella’s skirt is made of two layers of sheer white voile on top of a layer of cotton batiste. Each hem features delicate hand-stitching.

Arella’s sparkly wings are made from muslin & cotton batting. They feature vintage style glass glitter, machine-quilting & are attached to Arella with a large, mother of pearl button. Her little dove is a muslin/fiberfill creations & is button jointed. He is nested in a burlap cone filled with sweet annie. A silver-glittered star is wired to the cone.
