more ATC Art Dolls ...... old paper doll head.....and animal heads

I used a copy of a very very old paper doll head for both of these ATC dolls. The fairy design is original and the doll house doll was made from an old catalog.

Then on these other two, I used found pictures of animal heads on some of my original body designs.

Joan Walsh Anglund Altered ATC dolls..........

Joan Walsh Anglund was one of my most favorite Artists. I enjoyed her art, read her books and collected her funny simple Big-headed dolls. I collect anything JWA. I bought a birthday paper doll card with her art and kept it for quite sometime. I made seven ATC art dolls using almost everything from the one card. I even made a stand up card with the left-over little pieces of art. I made the legs or head move, depending on the clothing that Little Nell would be wearing. I made these for myself. Sometimes you just have to make somethings for yourself.

Just having fun making silly ATC art dolls.........

Had to watch grandkids one day for several hours. I took a bunch of silly stuff with me and made some funny ATC art dolls. I used magazine faces, my own original designs and just plain cooky stuff. I had a lot of fun entertaining myself and came up with 11 silly art dolls...I am posting several and will post some more in the next post......

Making my art journal

I made this bird in my art journal just for practice. I am learning to make the different patterns. FUN

Learning to make journal.........

Grandbaby's back of head. I thought about making the Zentangle directly onto his cute head but decided against that. I love the shape with all the other busy Zentangle practice.

Victorian Theatre ATC aRt Doll- Somewhere In Time

"Somewhere In Time" is one of my most favorite movies. It is about Victorian Theatre and it has a beautiful story.  I think Jane Seymour is very beautiful. The body is one of my original designs.

Let's Have Tea ATCs..........

This week I have been working on my art Journal, Some dolls patterns for ETSY and these ATCs. The theme is "Let's Have Tea". I made two and did not like them and so I added some layers and reworked them. Not sure which one I want to keep for myself and send the rest for swap.

Betty Boop Theme ATC art dolls...............

I had so much fun making these that I decided to make 6 ( had already sent one off). I chose three red and three green. They were two days worth of work but I was interrupted quite a bit during that time. Their legs, arms and heads move with brads and they fold up to pretty close to ATC size. I may be fudging just a little on that though. My oldest daughter really likes Betty Boop and would sing her song adorably by the time she was two.  "I wanna be loved by you, just you and nobody else but you. I wanna be loved by you alone    Boop oop  ee doo!"
