Hello Blogland!! It’s Thanksgiving week and as usual I have come down with a nasty bronchial infection!! UGH-seriously it’s EVERY freakin’ year around this time. There will be no outfit post today as my ensembles have been leaving a bit to be desired!!
As promised I’m going to reveal what all the glueing and glittering and such have produced. Actually-being sick has helped get stuff done because there was a lot of hand-sewing that needed to be done and is easily accomplished whilst I am sitting in the recliner.
Enough chattering–drumrolls please! Dadadaddaaddadadadadadadaad………
Here’s project #2:
Here are some close-ups to show the details:
For many years I used to design and make “art dolls” and Santa’s. I sold tons and won prizes in contests. Then, being the magpie I am, I got bored and wandered off into other artistic endeavors. I’ve been getting the “bug” back these past few months. It’s such a rush to see what I picture in my head come to life. Plus it makes SOME use out of my degree in art. I majored in multi-media sculpture-LOLOLOLOL
Many dollmakers make some extra cash from selling their patterns. Some are wonderful and some are a disaster. These-at least pattern/instruction-wise, were a disaster. Very vague, poorly drafted and scaled patterns, WEIRD construction methods. I would’ve not been able to make these if I weren’t experienced in doll-making construction/design and for that matter reasonably experienced in clothing construction. I wound up pretty much redesigning them. I definitely didn’t follow the materials list but chose my own and adapted to fit what I envisioned. Plus they wound up being “free”!!!!
I have one more to reveal-but I need to pick up some fake fur for trimming the robe. I decided I wanted that “look” and surprisingly I have no fake fur suitable in my stash. It will be coming!!
Stop by tomorrow to see what this collection of stuff will become!!
I’m linking up with Lakota for Tah-Dah Tuesday!!!
I’m off to take some happy meds and a nap! I’ll be stopping by and visiting your blogs when I’m awake-LOL
