1  Re: Art Dolls 2 - Send out July 7th in The Swap Gallery by susanab on: July 22, 2013 05:37:42 PM
i am as bowled over as can be.
this amazing cat arrived today right to my very doorstep!! this is a long and lovely lovely doll!

smmarrt!!! i LOVE HIM TO PIECES!! he is as amazing as any art doll ever made. this face is so beautiful

ummm, how did you get the fabric to say the word "cat"Huh that is just impossible

back view:

asked if i could please take a proper sitting portrait:

smarrtt stuffed the box with umpteen amounts of lusciouis fabric samples

and flattened distressed bottlecaps. these, to me, are like GEMS! i love these!

i am so delighted and can only hope that i can rise to the occasion of introducing the cat to Tim Gunn one day Wink Cheesy thank you so much!

i received from blupaisan. though i didnt see a note, i have a pretty good guess that she combined "creative" and "being thrown together" which is unfortunately how i usually look.
this altered brush is ME!

i love the mixed media-ness of this: paintbrushes for ARMS!!! THATS creative! i love the sneakers, too!

so clever--who would even guess this is a brush! you did an awesome job. thank you!

3  Fridamaid in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by susanab on: June 27, 2013 05:13:53 PM
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

a Frida quote on the back

thanks smmarrt for organizing this awesome swap!!
