This is a hand-sculpted, and completely original art doll. You can find it in my Etsy shop here. Just a warning though, she will only be on the site for a short 2 weeks before she is coming with me to the Lake County Art Fair in Mundelein, IL. So if she tickles your fancy, grab her before someone else does!
Here's a little background on how I created this art doll.
Her body is made from a chipboard cone that also has a layer of paper clay over top. Her hands are sculpted from paper clay as well. To add texture to her dress, I used a rubber stamp to stamp into the wet clay.
Once the clay has dried, I paint the entire piece and add fabric trims and buttons.
The little skull head she is carrying is actually from a ice cube mold and I added a little metal washer over its eye.
Yeah, I know it's not even Halloween yet and I'm already talking about Christmas. But I just couldn't wait because this is just too stinkin' cute!
I really love anything under glass. For some reason placing something under glass makes it that much more special. Precious almost.
I also loved the idea I saw floating around many Pinterest boards of the old fashioned trucks with the Christmas trees in the back. So I thought, "Why not combine the two?"
This ornament has a glass dome that sits on a wood base. A little wooden truck and a bottle brush tree and lots of glitter fill the inside. It is hung by a jute chord and finished with a "Merry Christmas" ribbon.
