Today I happened to be looking back on my blog to show someone one of my newer dolls, and realized what a moron I really can be, as they are not even posted here. So, meet AnnMarie! She is my workout girl with a cloth body and paperclay face. I like her expression!
Judy Skeel has been doing an on line class on wings using different techniques, so when I saw this, just had to take the class!! Here's a couple pics of the first set. These are made out of tyvek, a used priority envelope. Then I painted it on both sides with lumiere metallic paints. Sewed some wire in the center of each leaf then I put german glitter glass on the edges of the leaves. The leaves for wings you ask?? Well a forest fairy should have leaves to float on the breeze with.. LOL Okay, I will loose my mind with this one..
The day started out wonderfully. Project and inspiration were ready to go. All that was needed was some lining fabric to match and more trim to make another necklace in black. David is wonderful and has become a friend to me over the years. Haven't had the chance to see him, so spent some time visiting and catching up. Left Paterson after having this beautiful time with my friend, made the way to Shoprite and headed home at 10:30 am. Great!!! I'm ready to play all day. Then, without warning of course, the electric goes pop. out, done....
No electric. No sewing, no fun, no playtime. THE END OF THIS SUNDAY ! Have to regroup and make a new plan. Here's the pic of the first ribbon trim necklace. Second of same trim, dyed black.
Just lost over an hour of blogging that was put into save and is lost to me. So, with that, I'm going to just put up 2 pics and tell you that yesterday was a disaster. Had big plans for the day and then the entire town is without electric on a 90 degree day with 95% humidity...FUN, FUN! This is the beginning of my creative energy that was ready to go yesterday..Oh Well. Maybe another few weeks and it can happen again.
I have a friend named Ann Marie.
Once upon a time she came to me,
"There is something that you have to see",
Hence, the Sew Sew Dolls came to be.
I was on the computer looking at the Joggles site
When my imagination sprouted wings and soared into flight.
If this Doll of a woman isn't right!
This cloth art doll thing is sooo tight..!
Fibers,trim,cloth skin and hair
All the fixins to be hoarded in my lair...
Gathering friendships and love is the fare,
While my dreams become creations
That can take me anywhere!!
