11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Silly Art Girl Mashup on: July 09, 2012 03:27:54 AM
I know of two doll swaps that will be happening soon. Smmarrt's Art Doll swap and the Silly Girl Swap coming next month based on Missy Ballance's pattern. I'm looking forward to both and, this weekend, I had the idea to do a mashup of these two dolls.
Here is my Silly Art Girl:


I LOVED LOVED making her. Here is a closeup of her face:


And here she is with her sisters--from left to right--in the order that they were made--you can sort of see an evolution here Wink

I made these two Silly Girl dolls using Missy Ballance's free pattern. I really like them, they seem so summery sweet.
Instead of yarn, I used raw fabric strips for their hair. For Vera, the green doll, I went with vintage buttons for the eyes instead of felt. (Craftsters--we just can't stop messing with things like INSTRUCTIONS Wink)

The second time around--it was almost TOO much fun and I fear I'm going to make one in every color!

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 4x6 Cushy Critter--Gloria on: June 02, 2012 05:42:54 AM


after participating in round 2 of the 4X6 art swap i wanted to try a doll in that size. i really like working in around that dimension--it's big enough that you can play with, small enough that it's not daunting. this is gloria--she's very lightly stuffed--just about cushy. i'm already working this morning on companions for her.

15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / How I Spell Craftster--From 4X6 Art Swap on: May 29, 2012 08:55:30 AM


this is the mixed media/found objects piece of art that i made for round 2 of the 4" X 6" art swap.  we don't know who is going to get our art--a real interesting twist! alteredmommy ended up getting this which I call "How I Spell 'Craftster'" because it is made of:
Cc rubber stamped
Ribbon
Acrylic paint
Fabric
Twine
Safety pins
Twig
Ee in stamped metal
Rubbing (pencil on paper of a rugs texture)

Round 3 just opened=FUN!

18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Flat Art Doll on: March 31, 2012 01:59:00 PM
I made this art doll for fiddlegirl8 for the Invite Your Partner 20 Swap.


I was inspired by an article that Andrea Stern did about her "Funky Fiber Dolls" in the Winter 2004 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. She stuffs the legs and arms but leaves the bodies flat; I went for a totally non-stuffed doll.
She's designed to be a wall hanging.

It was really exciting to make  her. here are some up close pictures of some of the details:




I actually did the embedding of the mustard seed into this jewelry finding myself.


this gnome is her craftster avatar


i did a metal stamping of her favorite bible verse.

I was anxious about doing the IYP swap but im really glad now that she asked me. it encouraged me to stretch a bit more creatively Smiley
