2016 Topic 5: Art Dolls
Hi everyone Clare Lloyd here.
Tonight I'd like to share with you a little project I made using fabric.
Step Two: Then I shaded her in with water colour pencils (though I didn't actual use any water!) Plus also coloured a rough border in preparation for sewing.
Step Three: What next? Well, then I had to decide what the back of my art doll was going to look like. I stamped up the clouds from my latest launch ECL10 and they matched perfectly with my little raindrops from ECL06. Once again I coloured in the sky using coloured pencils.
Step Four: To make the raindrops pop a little I added a touch of Pearl Glaze to each of them and the glaze blended nicely with the blue water colour pencil. Then came the sewing together. She was stuffed with polyester wadding and some dried lavender.
So there she is my useful rainy day smelly art doll...LOL!
