So...hmmm....I keep looking at all these terrific soft toys and I'm wondering whether to post...what the hay-here she is Kiki De Montparnasse metal and paper art doll
I had been trying to think of something to make with a Kikihttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Prin
theme for a friend who is a huge fan of hers , so when I saw this challenge, it seemed to fit.
This is the original art I took inspiration from -it's called Le Violon d'Ingres.http://www.walkerart.org/archive/C/AF739994D2A2AE316169.htm
It is one of my favourite photographs and I love Man Ray
Kiki is wearing a little paper cone hat because once she was going into a fancy restaurant and the snooty maitre'd said she wasn't dressed correctly because she had no hat, so she took some paper and made a cone hat and everyone adored it!
Probably not a good toy to give to children under three
