I've been working on jobs around our home that need doing-but I guess ideas for art projects have been boiling in my head as well. This doll project is a long one in the making because every step has been a problem solving one. Now that I have a wooden armature for them, I have to add fabric for the bodies and add the arms. I wanted a sturdy 'skeleton' to build on, and to have them firmly planted in blocks of wood so they will stand. They have paperclay heads, and will have paperclay hands. The feet are still a mystery. I have a special story to share when they are done about the inspiration for these dolls. It's a story very close to my heart. It may take a few weeks to get to the point of having one finished enough to tell you more about them.
I especially love design, and animals make their way into my art a lot. I am going to add fabric scraps to this piece and then I guess it will be a wall hanging.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
