Tulla is made from silk fibers and a wooden thimble for the upper body. She stands about 9.25" in height and sits on a wooden base. The arms are made from coiled wire and the face is clay. A little green heart rest on her chest.
Marcia Antle from Queen Marcy Originals, was randomly selected as the winner of my blog giveaway! Marcia, I hope you enjoy Ellie!
Big thank you to all who follow my blog! We will have to do this again real soon!
Since using some of my collagraph prints in collages, I decided to try using them on an art doll. I really liked the way the layering of colors came out, but it was a little to crafty looking for me when I was done. So, I tried to counteract it with found objects for the torso.
This doll was made with vintage paper from an old book and she stands shorter than the doll pictured above.
I think using fabrics next would add a different feel.
Sorry for the delay in posting, but it is so darn cold that I just want to hibernate until Spring!
Creating these art collages has kept me busy and under a warm blanket. I've just been plain lazy to photograph anything lately. We also have a new camera and that has been slow in learing how the darn thing operates. These photos were done with my old camera!
The new camera does take some amazing pics, but I'm struggling with photographing my work indoors!
Anyway, I am enjoying pulling out my old collagraph and etching prints and using them in my collages.
I get restless very easily, so I painstakingly look for something different to stimulate my creative motor.
I've dabbled with quilting in the past, and it has been on the mind for a long while.
Both pieces were created from scratch, meaning no preconceived idea of what I was going to do.
I seem to work better that way.
This mixed media collage piece was created using several of my older etched prints. I cut the prints into sections and then started to piece them together. Various papers, fibers and fabrics were also in the mix.
