La Esencia de Titania

Did you ever think to yourself,  I’d like to meet an Art Gown fairy?

She would look like the sun shining on rippling pink water and her tail would be made from the forest’s leaves.

Her wings would fold behind her, in many wonderful different ways.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. We make fairies here. This may be the first fairy, but it will not be the last.

And who better to dedicate the first fairy Art Gown to than Brenda Davis Harsham from Friendly Fairy Tales.

Okay, a few notes on the making of La Esencia de Titania

It began with leftovers from “O Royal Treasure”. As I was cutting the circles out of  white voile to make her flowers, I noticed the long scraps were fairy airy and romantic feeling.

Using up old things is very Art Gowns apropos.

Shimmering pink stretch cut velvet was draped on Judy, with the white voile scriffles. It was too, pale.

Using metallic bronze and copper acrylic paint with fabric medium, the scraps were painted. A ladder was used for hang drying the pieces.

The result is what I call autumn leaves. After I draped the leaves around the gown, I brought my cat, Jeep, in for consultation

Once she was made, it was a lot of fun folding her wings in different ways.

Of course spreading them for flight was very important, as well!

La Esencia de Titania heads to the dining room to plan a dinner party for the Art Gowns.

Apparently, the Art Gowns want to move to a place with a larger dining room, more the size of a ballroom, so their tails will fit in better.
