Fairys and Goblins!!

I am just going through photos of a new "ghostie" I finally got finished, so while I'm sorting out the good from the bad, I'm posting some photos of past goblins and fairys I've done for you to see.
This was the Fairy Goblin GodMum, a hanging piece,...looks like she's just got done "pranging" a bit stunned Miss Pennythistle !! This was a happy little goblin named "Toad" shown with is favorite rag dolly

This little fairy was made from paperclay, she's around 5" kneeling


One of my favorites..this standing fairy is 11" tall. Her dress is made from antique gauzes with silver metallic trim.



Another favorite was this petite fairy that sits on an antique wire doll bed. Her dress was made from very delicate pink tattered gauzes with tiny silver beads. She wears a beaded wire and tinsel crown.

Hopefully I'll have some photos to post soon of the new little "Mystery Ghostie"
Happy Hauntings, Gail

Thanks for taking us on a trip down memory lane with you! I could look at your art dolls for hours and hours. They seem so real!

they are all such little treasures - should they ever need to runaway from wherever they are, please let them know we have a safe-house they are always welcome to crash at. :)

They are all so lovely. A teacher once told me that true art always evokes an emotional response. Whether it's tenderness, humor or connection, your dolls never fail to do so. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us.

Gail Lackey said...

Thanks everyone! I'm so glad your enjoying seeing past creations!
Now if I could just get old Father time to be partial to some extra hours to create...I wouldn't ask for too much more...well maybe I could think of a few extra's..but for now, just some extra time to create... for everyone.. to be able to spend time creating or doing what they love with out worldly distractions!! Wouldn't that be nice!
May huge blessings be dumped on all of you!!
hugsz, gail

Hi Gail!

These are all amazing. The standing fairy has always been one of my ultimate and absolute favorites but you have another one that's up right there too but I don't think I've seen you post her yet :)

That lil paperclay one spent a good amount of time as my pc wall paper. You captured so many feelings in that piece.

Luv and hugs,
Sprite
