miniatures for the show tomorrow

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

fiber art group challenge: felt

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 ; )
