These 2 are done with the same pattern but with different outfits and type of wings.
Added to my growing collection of cloth dolls…there is so much to do and experiment with different fabric and techniques. In the meantime some of them are going to fly off to family members and friends!
Berenice means “bearer of victory” from the Ancient Greek. I challenged myself to make this doll from the intermediate level section in the art doll book (Patti Medaris Culea)where I find patterns to try…
Very pleased with the result I found the name Berenice very much appropriate!
As I am still learning how to make cloth dolls. I decided to do a smaller one (around 25cm..). I realised it is as much work as the 43cm ones ..This one looks like a flower hence her name Flora. I decided to give her a name at the end of completion. I found it comes naturally by just looking at her. I used material that I had in my cupboards except for the one for the skin which I had to buy .
My first attempt in making an art doll…so pleased with the result! This one is called Presence …Made with bits of recycled material and rubans…I was given as a Xmas present the book from Jan Horrox on how to make cloth dolls…Well written and great explanations…plus help from wonderful and generous artists sharing their skills on You tube…This is a break from my mixed media paintings but still a very creative and rewarding activity !
I created this collage with colours in mind .Pink was my favourite choice so I naturally chose to do a collage of flamingos. Pink is for me a soothing colour and I need it in those hard times.Just to look at it quiet my mind!
