Tomorrow is the show and sale in Westbank and these are the two displays I am showing for my club table. Neither are finished but close enough to show . The Day of the Dead is a challenge that I made to a friend that we get our collections out and get it started at the very least. I am happy with the way it is now but will make a permanent roombox for it one of these days. The other display with the fairy is another club challenge to make a scene with the disco ball. I was given this lovely fairy years ago from a friend and the brass bed from another so....... aged the brass bed with alcohol inks and a felted bedspread and real life scale dollar store flowers and there she is (blurry of course ; ) ) Now everything needs to be packed up and ready to leave early in the AM to get to the show. I will take some photos of the others at the show. It will be fun to see all of my miniature friends too. Thanks for looking. Judy
There is a very new fiber art group started in the city up the highway from me and they meet on Saturdays!!!! Yeah for this working girl. Our mentor challenged us to make a doll . All of us to use the same pattern but size of it was our choice. I am in love with needle felting right now so I knew that the doll would be made of felt for sure but what I would do from there, not a clue. I finally decided to make a mold of this wonderful doll's face I have been saving for just such a project. Then I poured the mold at the office (I am a dental assistant for those who do not know). Then I used alcohol inks to colour her lovely face and then a spritz of Perfect Pearl Mist in the green patina colour. She is petite too as she is only 8 inches tall. I so love her and yes I created a Goddess. I am always amazed how a project can take on it's own life and where I thought I would bead her and embellish her, she put a halt to it for me. I love her just the ways she is. And what will I do with her you ask....... I think she will end up on a canvas and be hung in my living room with love. Oh and she matches my couch, Bonus ; )
Thanks for stopping by and leave a message please. I love to know who comes to visit my little blog.
decoupage, collage, cards, stamping, dollhouse miniatures, felting and embroidery are all ways that I try to create my art! Sometimes they overlap, sometimes they don't but I keep playing and enjoying every minute of it too.
