I am currently in the Spirit/Intention Doll swap and I wanted to try out a new pattern and have my own Spirit Doll!

She is Sky, made of love and air and joy and dancing and singing and fun! Fabric and lace, beads and bobbles, floss and rick-rack. I shaped the face out of a red terracotta colored polymer clay, then after baking, made a mould and made duplicates, each a bit different with spirals.

I used a new technique for the finish on the face. Clear shoe polish and glimmer powder...which I did not have. So I used eye shadow from the dollar store. Ha...I didn't even have eye shadow anymore and now I have all these colors. I like the shimmery finish!

And the WIP pic.

And the pattern if you want to make your own.
