Doll No. 326
Sept., 2007
This is Merryl, my 2007 Treasures of the Gypsy challenge doll (Merryl means "bright as the sea"). She's mounted on a shelf sconce.  The design was inspired by the figureheads of old sailing ships.  She is 15 1/2 inches tall (25 inches tall when on her shelf sconce), and about 8 1/2 inches wide. She's made of dyed muslin.  Paverpol was applied to her yarn hair.  She's embellished with lots of vintage jewelry.   I have documented her construction on my picturetrail site.  You can also see my previous Treasures of the Gypsy challenge dolls HERE.

Reproduction Alabama Baby Challenge  (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/VintageClothdollmaking/).  This doll (not yet named) is made of muslin and stands about 17 inches tall.  Her face (and occiput) are made of polymer clay, glued to a simple cloth head/body.  Gaps were filled with Creative Paperclay, then covered with cotton knit fabric.  The fabric was gessoed and painted skin tone acrylic paint.  Arms and legs are also gessoed then painted.  The original Alabama Babies were made by Ella Smith in the early 1900s.  Go to my picturetrail site to see how the doll was made (www.picturetrail.com/blueherondolls).

Doll No. 320

"Marisol" made for Doll Street's "2-D to 3-D" artist challenge.  Participants selected an artist from a list and created a doll made in the style of that artist.  Marisol was inspired by a Diego Rivera print.  She was made using my "Amity" pattern, from Buttersuede knit fabric.  She stands about 20 1/2 inches tall.  Her face is lightly needle-sculpted, colored with acrylic paints and colored pencils.  Her hair is chenille yarn.  See more artist dolls here

Doll No. 317
November, 2006
"Peace and Unity" angel made for the "Angel for the New Year" challenge sponsored by Noel Wolfman (www.clothdollpatterns.com).  The doll is made from velour, from a pattern by Sherry Goshon.  I lightly needle sculpted her face and colored her features with acrylic paint and colored pencils.  The wings are my own design, made from muslin, quilted, then painted with Gesso and acrylic paint.   She sits on a candlestick base.  Her bodice is covered in puzzle pieces, representing the many people of the world, separate, but with the hope of coming together.   The dove, of course, represents peace.
