NEW Witches of West Windlewood!

Meet Creada Z. DaVinci...she's a clever one with her flying devise. You might recognize the last name. She and Leonard argue over whose idea the flying machine was...she claims it's hers! I drew a pattern for my hubby to make wings from copper. I covered them with antique sheer fabric and coarsely stitched them. They appear to be held on by leather straps.
Beetle Juis is the newest witchly apprentice. She is becoming a master with spells. I loved her image when I found her. The dress is just too fun!
This little girl is embellished with a touch of glitter to her wand and dress for a glimmer of magic.
Hezzerta is a fancy witch. I discovered how to make my own plumes so I have a box of vintage feathers and curled them myself...after all these years I thought you had to buy special feathers. All you do to make a plume is curl it gently like you would ribbon!
This character is Smerna Fizz and her black crow, Griffon, I used a sprinkle of super fine black glitter on Griffon...he looks pretty snazzy with a sparkle!

I loved working on these new characters! Using vintage pics is soo fun because I use the images themselves to create the story for each one... I have these little girls available on my website and Etsy. The witching hour soon approaches my pretties!
Talk to ya soon!

the Lexington Art Show

Hi everybody!
I just wanted to share some pics of the Lexington Art show I attended. It was sooo nice to chat with people about such a variety of topics and all passionate! I met other lovely artists and was greatly inspired by them!
You can really learn a lot from seasoned artists that do art shows. This is the first out door show I have ever done and I was intimidated about it at first. My first moments of being open I could explain it like being in the park without my pants on! It felt awkward but eventually I warmed up to it and just shared my work and my own passions about creating.
My captured fairies were very popular. I'm trying to get more listed on my website. Most of you haven't seen them...they turned out fun. ;) you can see them hanging above from vintage distressed chains.
As you can see by my booth, I love to display things! We spent hours of set up time. I will be modifying some props for next time.
I'm looking forward to the next one...where ever that may be. I have a lot to load to my website and Etsy so that's where I will be for now :)
Take care all!
Love Lenae
