Collage of Paper art dolls.............

Hanging up an old window.......

I found an old window. Appx 3 feet X 2 feet. I love the old greenish color on it that is peeling off. I wired sections on the back and added tiny clothes pins to hand my ATCs on. Then added another wire to hang it on the wall. It was nice to see the color of the wall thru the old window.

Mermaid Doll-

I started working on my mermaid doll about three years ago and today I finished her. She is cloth with paper clay sculpted over the top. I wanted her skin tone to be sea colors. She has costume jewelry for her crown. I used an old doily with fish for her bra. Her necklace is made from small rocks with a metal fish. I do not have a name for her right now but I think I will sell her on ebay.

Primitive Rag Doll "Amelia Sadheart"

I had made the doll some long time ago but thought it would be fun to dress her. I used and old quilt and sewed it by hand to add to the primitive nature of the doll. Stitched some felt eyes on and added a big blue tear. I think she is really sad looking and begging to be loved. Her hair is embroidery floss and her nose it just plain stitched in. She makes me laugh if she was not so sad looking. hahaha
