Artful Times - Scrap Challenge
Well the title sounds a bit like Harry Hill when he goes "fight"!.......but the challenge over at Artful Times is all to do with using scraps.
So - I am still way behind with stuff as you can imagine, but this has been on the go for a while now
and I thought I would share it with you.
It is an ART DOLL -
Now first of all my Blog Mate FLORENCE - House of Chairs kick started me onto this, although I have long been a follower of Art Dolls & Art Doll Quarterly and done various versions of these, so a HUGE MEGA THANK YOU to FLORENCE who deserves it. A search of the internet (I was actually looking for tutors in the UK who would do a course that we (that's me and Roof) could go on) - and I found a tutorial - Faery Art Doll Tutorial - my goodness this is an outstanding tutorial by one very talented crafter - I salute you!!!!!
So how does this fit in with scraps - well it is PAPER MACHIE, the hair is STRING - I have added some false eyelashes ....... veering away to make her more my own. I have crafted some well good wire hands and stuff and will eventually dress her up.
Most of all I am really enjoying it and Art Dolls are going to be massive -
Take care everyone and thank you for looking!
