I laid down my painting and drawing for many years. I've been busy raising children. Now that they've gone back to school I have more time to indulge. Just some things I've done in the last 3 weeks: Watercolor:
I love a challenge, and this doll gave plenty to figure out for the first time. The Batman costume is removable. The back is made with a knit fabric and has snaps. Even so, after figuring out most things, I am still not satisfied with my shoe making. Something to work on, I guess.
And one more, as the wealthy playboy, Bruce Wayne.
Sometimes when inspiration hits I just have to go with it and let the muse take over. This means that the house is a mess and the laundry is piling up. When I was thinking about decorating my tree this year with my Christmas elves, I thought it would be fun to have one who had fallen off her perch. And that's how Trixie was born.
A friend asked me to make my Dr Who Weeping Angel doll into a larger version that she could use as a tree topper. I thought that was a fabulous idea! I can just see the tree decorated with red bow ties, Tardis, Dalek and Adipose ornaments all over it! Fun!
Instead of making her lower body of trapezoids all sewn together and stuffed, I attached her torso to a paper mache cone, and hot glued her dress around the bottom.
