Valentine in her boudoir - Valentine in ihrem Boudoir








































This is my Valentine piece. I worked on it some days because it has many details and different techniques.

The doll is in her boudoir and plans her Valentine's date. She decided to wear this dress with roses on the fabric.

There is plenty of fine materials and different hand and machine stitches on this one. I used Austrian pearl strings on wire, the ones you use to do folk art works. Also pearls, sequins, buttons, wire, a huge glass bead, I painted her shoes and ...you notice...she is big and slim, a new kind of lady!

She hangs her new dress from a hanger so that it doesn't get crinkled till Valentine's day.

It is about 18"x12" (45x30cm), the doll is 10" (25cm) high.

The piece can be hung from a hidden wire ring it has on the back or you could put it in a shadow box. Both display possibilities would be good!

Dieses ist mein Valentinsstück. Ich habe einige Tage daran gearbeitet, da es so viele kleine Details und Techniks hat.

Die Puppe ist in ihrem Boudoir und plant ihre Valentinstagsverabredung. Sie hat sich für dieses Kleid entschloßen, da es Rosen im Druck hat.

Ich habe viele feine Materialien und verschiedenes Hand- und Maschinsticken. Ich verwendete auch Perlenstränge, die man für die Klosterarbeit verwendet. Auch Perlen und Pailletten, Knöpfe, Draht, eine große Glasperle. Ich habe die Schuhe bemalt und ... Sie merken es... sie ist Groß und schlank, eine neue Sorte von Dame!

Sie hängt ihr neues Kleid an den Kleiderbügel, so daß es bis Valentinstag nicht zerknittert wird!

Die
Größe ist 45x30cm, die Puppe ist 25cm hoch.

Man kann das Objekt von einer Drahtschlaufe, die hinten versteckt ist, aufhängen, oder sie in einen tiefen Rahmen ausstellen. Beide Möglichkeiten wären gut.

  6. Too too beautiful. I looked at photos on Flickr recently of your mixed media things and also your home. I drool with envy. What gorgeous work and gorgeous home. I think you must have lived there a long while for all those layers to happen.

    I now desire to try felting from looking at yr blog. My poet friend A. has barrels full of carded wool as he once wove. I hope he'll let me have some so I can learn. Thanks for the felting videos on your blog. I looked at one or two.

  19. Liebe Sara, duch die Zeitschrift FUN bin ich auf Dich aufmerksam geworden und finde Deine Kreationen genial. Da kann ich noch viel lernen!!!
    Valentine erinnert mich an die Anziehpüppchen meiner Kindheit, die gab es damals leider nur aus Papier.

  23. I really love these two last pieces you made, and they seem to follow my personal state of mind too... i am slightly moving out of bright and strong colours to whites and calming tints... I love the transparency as well. really lovely!
    And great work from your husband too, they're never too praised when they make so much effort!!!
