Rosetta – A Sparkly Garden Fairy.

Meet Rosetta. She’s my newest creation & is my offering for April’s PFATT Marketplace update. Rosetta is an OOAK (original, one of a kind) paperclay creation. She will not be reproduced.

Rosetta is 10.75” tall with a wingspan of 5”. She is a wee little charmer for sure! Rosetta’s head is made from paperclay over Styrofoam armature, securely sculpted to a papermache cone base. Additional paperclay details include Rosetta’s leafy collar & the petals of her beautiful skirt. Rosetta is a free-standing doll & because she was built on a cone base, she can also be used as a lovely tree topper in your shabby-chic or romantic, Victorian home.

Rosetta has been hand-painted top to bottom with a variety of media in several layers. She has a great vintage patina & lots of texture! Rosetta has been sealed with matte sealant, but has a slight sheen.

Her wings are machine-quilted muslin. The front of Rosetta’s wings are heavily dusted with vintage-style glass glitter. They are securely attached to Rosetta’s body with embroidery thread & vintage, mother of pearl buttons.

Rosetta can be purchased here. Make sure to check out the many wonderful offering by members of the PFATT (Primitive Folk Art Talk & Tea) Marketplace members.

Dawn, a Primitive Cabbage Rose

Dawn #144 Available Here


Can you tell that my seed & plant catalogs have inspired me? This lovely rose is Dawn. Dawn is 17″ from top to bottom. She has been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. Her lower torso has been rag-stuffed & is lightly weighted so that she may stand nicely. Dawn has been made in the style of a stump doll. She has no legs.


Dawn has been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display.

Dawn’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her face a great bit of dimension & a beautiful little pout. She has needle-sculpted leaf hands as well.  Each lovely petal surrounding Dawn’s face has been individually sewn & cut. They are turned so that each edge has a nice smooth finish. They have been individually hand-sewn to Dawn’s head.
