A while back, MissingWillow and I swapped together in the IYP. She sent me some crocheted flowers she found, and some ceramic bird heads and leaves that she made.  She thought I might enjoy playing with them, and she was correct! The other day I was procrastinating (while supposedly working on a different project), and I started fiddling around with the things she sent. Somehow, Finn was born.


I used a vintage block I had. The color was a great match. And doesn't the crocheted flower make the perfect ruffly collar? I was going to give Finn a party hat, using the lace for a trim, but when I cut the lace to size, it struck me that the lace made a perfect crown. I've had those doll legs forever. Finally, a good use for them.


The head, wings and doll feet were affixed with Apoxie Sculpt. It makes the perfect little pantaloons.


Stand tall, Finn!

I adore Finn! Is that short for Finneas?

So enjoy how your imagination and artistic vision create art out of seemingly mismatched pieces. Smiley
