Troll Rider

Today I added the second leg and the arms. I'm very happy with the progress. I can't wait to give him/her some clothes. And have lots of embellishment ideas.

Troll Rider

Yesterday's post must have inspired me to get to work on my Troll rider.  Don't pay attention to the pins and open spots, it's a WIP.  I just thought I'd post my progress.

I'm still here

My apologies for not posting in such a long time!  We've had a perfect spring here in Southern California and it's really hard to be inside.  Here are a few things I have made since my last post.

So, I did a small mixed media collage that I gifted.

Making all sorts of upcycled Denim bags.  This one is made from a pair of overalls, and barkcloth.  The leather handles are from a old leather coat.  And since there were no holes I made some holes and then patched them.

I got a little side tracked with doing some Sun printing.  I took a piece of muslin and some watered down acrylic paint.  Painted my muslin and then laid a variety of flowers on top and the sun did the rest.

Then I ripped off a small section and did some FME.

And I have been very addicted to upcycling denim lately, so I used the decorated piece in my new upcycled denim bag. 

Lastley, here is a new trolls all sewn up and waiting to be stuffed.  This little troll will be the rider for the Field Mouse.  And I'm hoping to get working on it in the next few days. 

More soon!

Something new ........

Today I finished my Field Mouse that I started last month.  I'm tickled to have her finished.  Now she may get a little friend down the road.  I'll keep you posted.

Just submitted two of my dolls to Stampington

Just submitted two of my pieces to the Anthropomorphic Dolls challenge that is being hosted by Stampington for the Art Doll Quarterly magazine.  

I kinda waited til the last minute to submit my work, so I guess we'll just see what happens next.

Today I finished my Mushroom Troll!  Well she's not really a Troll, but rather a Mushroom type Character. She's a OOAK creation and has a real whimsical way about her.

finally getting back

It seems like forever since I've worked on my troll.  She now has an Arm...........and is so close to being done.  I'm getting excited about getting her done and maybe starting a new one.   It's hard to work inside when the weather is so nice outside.  So I'll just keep plugging along!
