Crown Prince fairy


What a charming little Royal Fairy this little guy is.

I so loved making him. He is such a handsome Prince. He WILL one day Rule the world. I painted the matt as well as the frame to all blend together. I used wax over the entire piece. I just rubbed it all over. Not bees wax but furniture wax. I just wanted to see how it would turn out. I had no idea but It worked & it turned out great & I LOVE it. Gives it an aged appearance. Very dreamy. I also rubbed on & off a burt umber paint for antique effect also.

Just to see how it would look. I used a wide cream silk ribbon at the top. then thought it needed a bit of black at the top so i used a black & white gingham ribbon ..... as if it were hung by the ribbon, but it was only for effect. whomever would buy this can figure out what way you want to go with it & do whatever you want. im going to post this on Etsy or ebay? not sure yet which one. I am going to list some things on ebay too. I have several things on etsy. I never solf on there yet. I used to sell on ebay years ago. I had over 1,000 positive feedbacks. It stinks that i have to start all over. O well. I'll get it back again. I am working on a web site with this wondeful girl. I hope to sell from there, etsy, ebay & have my myspace & flickr too. Any links & exposure to ME ~ JOELLE Dolce Bebe is great. I hope its worth it to have more than one place. Let me know if you have any other ideas or what works for you. I would appreciate it as well as anyone else reading this that may have same questions.

thank you & keep creating. XOXO Joelle

I don't really have any other pictures on flickr yet. I joined because of the tiara swap.
