Icon doll is finished

Well, the class is over and "Our Lady of Beauty" has been finished. Here she is: She stands about a foot tall on a deep, midnight blue stand with a sparkly golden star. Her background rays were made with colored tissue, her face frame was drawn on metal tape over dark pink cardstock.
I painted her face and curled her hands of metal taped card. Her dress glows with papercut flowers, colored tissue and a good deal of our favorite gel medium.
I wish that she will grant you your beauty: free and clear and entrancing.

I accomplished my goal in making Her: I found beauty in what I already had. I didn't spend any money at all. An important meditation in the coming times, I think, if I am to believe the news on the BBC.

What a gorgeous doll! I love the colors and that cool metal head piece.

Thanks for stopping by this morning ~ I see that you are another early bird!

Be sure to visit Vanessa. You are in for a real treat. Also follow the link to my friend Inge in Belgium to see how she is partying. There will be about 200 posts or more today to check out and get ideas for our Soul Journey Halloween Party next weekend.

Oh, I have so much to do. Right now I'm working on the new prompt for tomorrow. The Collage Diva's work, ahem, I mean play is never done!

Good to see you this morning. Have a fun weekend!
