Over at Saturday's Workout the challenge is to make a chunky ATC.....and as I have a drawerful of these (thanks to DH) I thought I ought to take up the challenge! I used a sketch of mine from here and added some colour using pencil crayons, acrylic paints, torn paper, lace, paper napkins, heavy gesso, gold pen and some embellishments.
I had another wonderful surprise in the post a couple of days ago. My lovely friend Jacky in Australia told me she would send a bookmark for my fabric book (to go with the page she made) - but I wasn't expecting one of her gorgeous Klimt Dolls as well (in all my favourite colours!)
She is so beautiful! And I love the way Jacky has shaped the base and weighted it with rice (I think) so she stands up perfectly on her own. Just perfect!
And that wasn't all.....she included the prettiest bundle of fabric, lace and beads which I haven't yet undone. I just love looking at it all together like that. Thank you Jacky.....I am so grateful.
*****************I discovered an Etsy site last week called Lillalotta - where Anna sells beautiful printed cotton tapes with words and pictures on them. I ordered these, plus a pretty alphabet. Can't wait to get them!
My next project will involve painting faces on clay.....I've subscribed to Jane DesRosier's doll workshop. I've been wanting to have a go at this for ages, but I didn't think I'd be able to do the faces. Well now I think I'm ready for a go.......
......so watch this space!
