This is my most Extravagant pair of Sprytes, they have taken me forever... but I am really pleased with them, and glad they are finished!! =D The Sea Empress has about 7 layers to her skirt, and its embelished with stones, shells, beads and trinkets. It matches her crown, and the embellishment on The Sea Emperor too. They are about 20" Tall, which I think is my tallest pair so far..!
The Sea Empress and Emperor never had any children of their own, so instead adopted the Sea, and they treat all under the waves as if they were their own children. They are full of love <3
They love each other very intensely, their life is full of laughter and kisses!
Sea creatures from near and far all come to them with their troubles. The Empress and Emperor are always eager to help, offering those at need a place in the Ocean Palace, until they get back on their feet. (Or fins!!)
The Emperor, baggy pantaloons, embelished with beads, a cloak, and of course, A Trident!
The Empress, many layerd skirt, with silk corset, embellishments, and crown!
I hope you enjoyed meeting them! C+C Always welcome! Thankyou for looking!!! xxx
I LOVE these! Your poem is wonderful too! Will have to read it to the 5 and 10 year old I look after, they will love it. Actually, they'd love the idea of putting art out for others to find, too, definitely a future project Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks for all the compliments! I am really pleased with them, I didn't have much faith in them, and was completely when they came out being not too shabby! Yes, I am definatley going to have some on hand to sell, so gotta get cracking, the fair is in 3 days! =O
I have started making Felted Toadstools for my Sprytes to sit on =) I am still playing around with them, and will change the pattern a little more till I am happy with them, I want to try some green/brown pointed ones too. They're ever so slightly addictive!! haha !
I am going to use them when I do craft fairs, as stands for the dolls, and to add a little colourful interest the the table! I am going to do some reallly tall twisty ones too, hopefully!
I have been trying to make one Spryte every week this year. Its a little ambitious, but exciting. (It also keeps me off the PC!!)
Here are the Sprytes that have been born the last few weeks!
This is O'khea, she is a guardian of Horses =) She was so much fun to make, and was a donation to an auction to raise money for a Horse Chairly. I love her freckles, I've never done them before, but will definatley be doing more now! Her full story and more pics are here: http://britishwoodlandsprytes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/okhea.html
