Wispy spirits

Sitting here at 4:30 in my PJ's is not normal for me. But I feel like I've accomplished something so I'm not all that upset. This morning after many mugs of coffee, I started working on the box again. It took a couple of tries before the opening seemed ok, but I am very happy with the way it looks now. Then after a quick snack break, I came back to work on the stuff coming out of the box. The wisps closest to her head seemed heavy (and they photograph terribly!), so I redid them a little at a time. In person they look better than they do here but I'm hoping with more time and a tripod I can get some photos with less reflection. I've also redone the faces and all in all I'm very happy with the results. To attach these will be interesting - but I think if I cover everything with silver/grey bridal illusion and sew over it with gold and silver thread - that might work - of course I'm sure I will chicken out and just sew it down with invisible.

It looks beautiful. You've really captured the feeling of the spirits, and the colors are fabulous. Good find on the fabric for the box!

It's just beautiful, Deirdre. You are becoming quite the accomplished textile artist. :-)
