I made this art doll for erica_tattoos for the art doll round 2 swap. erica has a lot of great themes to choose from--and i couldn't settle on just one. so i combined "mermaids" and "frida kahlo" and this is the doll that happened Smiley

i used small jewelry rings for earrings and found a flowery glass bead that's reminiscent of the flowers that she wore in her hair.


i combined a Mexican-theme fabric with a turquoise tail.  she's been gesso'd so she has a sculptural feel to her


i made a shawl and did some stitching on that. that was a final touch that i'm really glad worked out

thanks smmarrt for organizing this awesome swap!!

She looks awesome! I love the two themes together in the first place, but the addition of the quote just makes it even better!
