Let's begin with Art Doll #1 ....
The base is a Hanging Chunky Board (large) which I painted first with Stone Fresco Finish Paint and then dry brushed over with Antarctic.
I chose a small-patterned stencil for the broke background in Baltic Blue and blended it into the background with a bit more Antarctic.
The flower stand (LPC028) was stamped using Cobalt Archival Ink. I removed the string and glued in two eyelets. Now the figure.
I stamped the body form from LPC029 onto a piece of close weave cream cotton fabric in the Cobalt ink, layered it with thin wadding and more fabric, stitched just outside the stamped outline and cut out the shape.
I added a die-cut rosette skirt in printed script card stock. I stamped the tall figure on the same card stock in Cobalt ink.To continue the dimensional look of the figure I glued buttons to the background in head and foot positions and added the cut out face and stand.
The metal embellishments were painted with Baltic Blue and partly wiped off to reveal the raised metal. A ribbon bow and hanging loop and we are done!
I have to say I'm not usually a "blue" person but I love these colours- can feel a quilt
happening......... Back tomorrow with more.
Leandra Says: I was hooked at the gorgeous stencilling! But love how all the elements of the image have been used so cleverly, like deconstructed food, this is deconstructed stamping! LOL (well in my head anyway!)
Gillian Says:Love how you have broken down this image of the doll and created various dimensions ... such a cool art doll. Can't wait to see what else is in store this week.
