Annabelle- My version of cute!




Meet Annabelle! Annabelle decided she wanted to be a snow angel, so she made herself some wings out of paper. What better paper to use for angel wings than the pages of Momma's bible?! She even used her special glitter on them! She was so proud of the way they turned out. Oh wait maybe she should be a Valentine Day fairy? No worries her special wings still worked as a fairy. Only now Annabelle is a little worried, Momma has just discovered the cut out pages of her "book". Do you think Momma will love the wings as much as Annabelle?

I had a ton of fun creating Annabelle! I didn't use any steampunk parts this time and did a little cuter version than I normally do just for fun! I created her wings out of a vintage bible page, resin, and German glass glitter and copper wire. Annabelle is hand sculpted out of paper clay over an armature. Her "dress" is scrapbook paper and I added vintage lace around the bottom and the sleeves. Her bow is also vintage lace. The block is a child's alphabet block I purchased a long time ago at an antique store.

I'm going to list Annabelle on Ebay and see how that goes ;o) Let me know what you all think of her :O)) xo Michele

Annabelle brought a big smile to my face ... so i guess she's doing her job! I envision the Michele Lynch interpretation of the Chinese terra cotta figures ... with your extended family all lined up in rows. Wouldn't that be funny ... and a little scary! LOL!

Thank you Barbara! OH wouldn't that be cool?!! LOL I think that would be awesome! I'll have to try and get a picture like that lol! xo Michele

I really like her! I have not been getting much traffic to Ebay listings but who knows - it is my first try any way.

Michele Lynch Art said...

Thank you! Well I know what you mean on ebay, etsy seems to have come to a screeching halt too :oP

It seems to be OK if you bring your own traffic - but considering how much Ebay charges - it doesn't seem worth it unless they're going to help bring the traffic! I'm thinking of putting my extras up on Etsy just to have a constant store/gallery available.

Michele Lynch Art said...

Yeah it takes a while to build a following on ebay. Ebay has actually always been good to me. We'll see on the dolls ;o) Good luck with ebay or etsy which ever way you go :o))

I think she is my version of cute too! I think she still has a little naughtiness that is your trademark. It is so much fun to watch artists grow...Annabelle is you...right?
She is splendid!
