Art Dolls

Happy first day of spring everyone!! I had an hour or so to go out to my shed today so thought I would join in with the PaperArtsy art doll topic. I wish I had had more time for this topic but have had a hectic week at week due to the Cheltenham festival and no staff!...so sometimes working in 3 different locations in one day..and I have woken up this morning with a lovely cold...oh joy. Still 4 more days at work then 10 days off!!

Anyway you can pop over to the PA blog just here there is some lovely work from all the designers.

I only had time to do a tag but got the chance to use a set of my new stamps from paperartsy..a birthday gift from my lovely friend Helen.

I started by painting a tag with sage frescos and adding a layer of crackle glaze...when that was dry I added chalk fresco..quite thick for big cracks. I stamped the doll stamp directly onto the tag and added embossing powder to the crown I stamped her again on smoothy card and cut out the body then again the heart. I painted the dress in chartreuse and the heart with claret. I added feathers at the back and some jewels on the crown.

Thanks for stopping by...
