Evelyn, a Primitive Polka Dot Valentine’s Angel

EvelynBrownBG This sweet little angel is Evelyn. She is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind, original art! I’ve used no patterns or molds to create her or her clothing. Evelyn is 16" tall & has a 9" wingspan. She has been made of muslin and stuffed with fiberfill. Her bottom has been rag-stuffed & bean filled in order to allow her to stand freely. Evelyn’s head and torso have been made from hand-sculpted paper clay. I have hand-painted & sanded Evelyn top to bottom many, many times. She has been stained top to bottom for a truly grungy appearance. Evelyn’s arms are lightly wired and button jointed allowing her to be gently posed.

Evelyn’s facial features have been hand-painted. She has big brown eyes, pink lips & the rosiest cheeks. Evelyn’s fingers have been needle-sculpted. She has been painted with premium acrylic paints and has been sealed with glossy acrylic sealer so that she may be lightly dusted over the years & kept a lifetime.

EvelynEtherealEvelyn’s skirt features lots of hand-stitching. Her skirt consists of a white underskirt made of lawn cotton which is slightly sheer. Her over skirt has been made from white tulle which makes her appear truly angelic! Her underskirt is split in front to allow view of her base which consists of hand-painted polka dots & looks like another part of her skirt! The skirt band is dotted with authentic swarovski crystals which have been sewn securely in place. Evelyn’s clothes have been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for an aged appearance. They were then hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Evelyn’s wings are something special. They have been made from vintage text from a book titled Diary of a Birthday Doll decoupaged over sturdy cardstock. They have been coated with several layers of sealant & were then generously dusted with vintage-style glass glitter. They sparkle beautifully. Evelyn’s wings have been attached securely with a vintage shell button (the colorful white side is exposed, the darker shell side is facing Evelyn’s body).

Evelyn carries a Valentine’s banner that reads "My True". Each letter was hand-stamped onto taupe cardstock with chocolate ink then strung on hemp twine. The banner is simply tied to Evelyn’s arms should you want to remove it.
Evelyn’s hair is black 100% mohair. It has been lightly glued then carefully needle felted to her head. Evelyn’s hair is styled into low buns.

Magdalene, Primitive Angel of Hope

MagdaleneHeadtoToe 

This is Magdalene, the Angel of Hope. She is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind! I’ve used no patterns or molds to create Magdalene or her clothing. She is 15" tall with a wingspan of 10". She is made of muslin and has been stuffed with fiberfill. The lower part of Magdalene has been rag-stuffed & bean filled allowing her to stand properly. She has no legs. Magdalene’s head has been hand-sculpted out of paperclay without the use of any molds–only my hands & a paintbrush! I’ve hand-painted & sanded Magdalene from top to bottom several times. She has been stained for a super grungy appearance. She has the patina of a beautifully aged antique. Magdalene’s arms have been lightly wired, allowing them to be bent slightly.

MagdaleneFace

Magdalene has peachy cheeks, brown eyebrows, pale pink lips & big green eyes with yellow accents. Her tiny fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. Magdalene has been painted with premium acrylic paints. She has been sealed top to bottom with clear, glossy acrylic sealer so that she may be preserved beautifully over the years & kept a lifetime.

MagdaleneHope MagdaleneHand
Magdalene carries a banner reminding us all to simply Hope this Christmas. Each letter was hand-stamped onto taupe card stock paper in a lovely chocolate brown ink. I then strung each letter onto hemp twine. The twine is simply tied around Magdalene’s hands & is removable should you decide to display her without it.

MadgaleneEmbroidery MagdaleneStitching MagdaleneProfile Magdalene wears two dresses. The under dress has been fashioned out of white muslin. Her overdress has been fashioned with fabric from a vintage slip. It features delicate embroidery & crochet insets. Her dress is tied around the waist with a long chocolate ribbon. Magdalene’s overdress is long allowing it to pool beautifully at her base. These dresses feature hand-stitching around the hems, necklines & arm holes. They have been dyed in a coffee & lavender bud bath. They do not smell, however. I simply dyed them in those substances to obtain the desired hue. I then hand-washed them & pressed them with linen water.

MagdaleneWing

Magdalene carries a fragrant bouquet made of sweet annie & dried rose hips I plucked from the woods behind our house. It is tied simply with a piece of hemp twine. Magdalene’s charming batik, polka dot wings have been made from fine, handmade 100% lotka paper that I purchased from a specialty shop. They have been glued to heavyweight chocolate cardstock & then sealed with many layers of mod podge. Magdalene’s wings have been affixed to her body with a vintage button & heavy-duty button thread.

 

And just look at all these guys together!!! I’m super proud to offer these dolls this week.
