The Spirit/Intention Doll swap is turning out to be absolutely amazing. The best part was being able to create a spirit doll or someone.

Meet Earthe. She is stuffed with good spirit, nature, nurture, peace, love an many other good things (plus stuffing of course). Her body started with a chenilling technique then beads, juniper, moss, paper beads and more fabric were added. Her face is polymer clay with a finish of clear shoe polish mixed with dollar store eye shadow (cheap glimmer powder).

There is a great YouTube by Jamie Malden for chenilling, she calls it slashing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaPsMLE2FQ8

I just love everything about her.  The colors you chose are beautiful and she has so many little extras.  Every time I look at the picture a little something else you have added to her.  Amazing!!!
