I’ve done it! I have actually started on my Doll that I am attempting to be in the form of “My Essence”. Which are Beauty, Light, Heart, Power and Warrior. I have been hesitant because I was not sure where exactly I wanted to take her. I think it is one of those projects you have to jump in with both feet and begin to create! I have got the first few Base structures in the oven. I am beginning with the techniques that I learned from Maureen Carlson. We had a blast in that class and I have been inspired to do the doll ever since then. For some reason I started with Sap Green for my Base. I am planning on using a combination of that and gold and whatever else the spirit moves me to use. I added a bit of a lace cane to show from out of her skirt. That is because I am such a frilly girl! And now the rest of the story….
Well I would show you how she turned out, but I forgot to get any pictures before I delivered her to the San Diego County Fair with Tina this afternoon. She definitely changed through the creative process. This morning I decided to make a whole new Torso because I did not feel like the one fit the rest of her “Look”. That gives me a start on the next doll. I like how she came out, but she is definitely not what I had in mind when I started. But that is okay. I had a lot of fun creating her using different techniques for colors and beads. She is a combination of the Sap Green, Gold and Alizurine Crimson. She has a little bling and a little steampunk. Just a bit. The pictures only show you what is left after I took her to the fair…- K
