Theodora - Earth Mother of the Butterflies

So, what could be better than a Butterfly Blog Party? Well, how about a Butterfly Blog Party hosted by the amazingly talented and inspiring Eva? Yes, folks that is EXACTLY what you have stumbled upon on this fine Sunday and I have a treat to share with you!


I would like to introduce you to Theodora. Theodora is the Earth Mother of the Butterflies. She talks with nature and listens even more. She is aware and attentive. She is quiet. She is gentle.

Theodora


Theodora is a theatre doll with a simple box for her base displayed in the gorgeous 100 Proof Press circus tent image. Her torso is paper and covered with beautiful butterflies and glass glitter. Her face is a paper clay mold that I painted with acrylics (and a little tiny brush!).

I was so very excited when Eva invited me to take part in her fabulous Butterfly party because this project has been sitting half done for WEEKS! When Eva mentioned butterflies it was like a stream of inspiration hit and Theodora finally spoke to me and came out of that beautiful inspiration! I really love it when projects come out of pure inspiration! I am so happy with her.

I hope you are inspired by this gentle soul born out of pure inspiration! And I hope you enjoy the other fabulous projects joining Eva's Butterfly Party!
