Meet "Moon Dancer"
(based on the Titania Doll by Jane Horrox)
She will be leaving shortly to dance with a lovely lady by the name of Lorelei aka Eliora, who makes the most gorgeous Pagan accoutrements.
I have known her for quite sometime, but realised I have never sent her a gift. I decided to make her a doll, but wanted specific colours for the fabric.
Didn't have any, so I painted my own, inspired by lesson 44 at Soul Food by Kristen Powers , in which she showed us how to mono print using a rubber mat.
I smooshed some craft paints onto my rubber mat and then spread a piece of cream cotton over the top to get this nummy swirly print. I took a second print each time to acquire a paler matching piece.
Then I highlighted shapes with a permanent marker.
Some of the paints I used(Martha Stewarts) were pearlescent and remained shimmery on the fabric.
Now it was just a case of choosing which doll pattern to use. I chose the "Titania" model from Cloth Doll Making by Jane Horrox
I wanted something "floaty" for her skirt, so I chose a silky scarf from my stash...
and gave her soft silky hair...
she also has added sparklie, but you can't see it from these pics.
Enjoy :D XXX
