soo...as i stated on my previous posts, ive been working on a doll...well...i finished and honestly...i like the way it came out...i dont like the way the pictures came out....i took like 100 and everyone was blurry...cropped weird or just blah...i probably shouldnt give up and just keep taking picture/uploading them to see if one comes out nice...but i just really dont want to do that...so the pictures i did take and picked are going to have to do...for now at least...
so..heres miss dollie mollie...
that is the front...
i did embellish the sides but...like i said...not taking any more pictures..lol..
i actually made this doll with the cheapest materials ever...i found a porcelain doll in my local dollar store...so i bought 5 of them to dismantle and collect the arms and legs...i did this because the legs and arms i really wanted on artchix were sold out and i really wanted to work on her...so yea..i left the arms as is and painted striped black & white stockings using paint and marker...as for the body....i found a wooden square block while playing with my son with his building blocks...and the rest was just rubons, papers, heart brad, flowers, made the hat myself, rhinestones and photo. i positioned the arms and legs on with those hook screws..and just binded the arms/legs to the hooks with twine. i have made a few dolls in my day...and this isnt my best..but i enjoy making them...i think they are the cutest little things and are really simple to make.
also...the quote spread out on the front of her body reads " where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art"
i really love that quote, written by da vinci.
anyways...also at the dollar store, i picked up a small box to alter...i had just gotten some adorable sassafrass papers and wanted to use them real bad...so heres my little altered box... :oP
just a little creation to store some odds and ends in.
okie...well...thats all for now..i applied to a dt team and im waiting for feedback is i made it in. so cross your fingers!!! ;o)
