I made this doll for P_E_S_T in the Art Doll Swap. I spent a lot of time going through her interests and her posts to try to get a sense of a doll that could even begin to represent the awesome that this woman is. When the inspiration struck, I worked like a fiend and this is the result. The hair is individually hand-sewn pieces of burlap. The dress is decorated from my scrap bag. There are two birds that adorn the dress and one butterfly at the doll's neck to represent transformation, hope, freedom, joy, and so many other good intentions.

So when I had to have hysterectomy 3 years ago, believe me - it was a good thing ! I saved up to have an amazing tattoo done by an amazing woman. The bottom is fire (flames), then water (waves), then moons (earth), then a huuuuuge butterfly (air). It was all about transformation, reclaiming, healing.

"artsycandice" she is just beautiful! I love her dress & her hair! I'm not sure what she is made of, is it clay & did you have a form or just free hand? I'm just curious how she's made. If you would could you make a tute on how you made her? She is totally  "Awesome"!!
