Something completely different tonight from Penny on the PA blog. Set my mind whirring and once again untidying the just sorted craft room.
I got my inspiration from looking through my PA stamps and the first thing that I decided was to use the heart from HP1104EZ as my fabric bodice. Next I chose one of my fave faces from LP stamps, used the pen to form pleats for the skirt and a rather obvious boot. I made the skirt a bit flirty by folding some net and there was my art doll.
I painted some card with Chalk fresco paint and then brayered (good old Ellen Vargo) a background using Chartreuse and Beach Hut. I stamped another LP stamp with Cornflower Blue archival.
Before I assembled my doll, I painted over the images with Blood Orange which luckily is translucent.
A metal corner finished off the skirt and a few drops of stickles blinged it up a bit. I also roughly painted a border.
The doll is called Ruby because she represents my Ruby wedding which I will be celebrating on Sunday. I think that Ruby looks contented and even after 40 years is managing to maintain a flirty look which will keep her other half on his toes!!
Thankyou Penny for inspiring me to create something meaningful.
