I have been seriously remiss in blog posting...no excuse really except I didn't have much to say. The events of the world have been pretty depressing lately and I've been indulging in a lot of time reading and enjoying the lovely weather to help lift my spirits. I've also been working on some art dolls...hooray! I've got two still in the works but one is finished so I can share her with you today.
My forest fairy! Do you recognize the fabric in her top? I posted about making it way back here. So it's only taken me a year to get her made? Sheesh!
The funny thing about this doll is that my vision of her was completely different from the final result. She's one of those dolls with a definite mind of her own. I saw her with a long, flowing gown and long, wavy, loose hair...as you can see she had her own ideas. I find that it's usually best to go with what a doll wants, they're awfully good at the silent treatment you know. So we ended up with pants and braids, which of course are much more practical for jaunts through a forest, so you see she did know best.
Do you ever have bossy dolls or am I just completely crazy?
