The current challenge on the Flickr Art 'n' Soul group is to make a 'Garden Goddess' using the template by The Enchanted Gallery and to use some embossing on it (either powder or metal).
Here is 'Fern' the Autumn Goddess.
I cut the shape from mountboard, covered it with some Decopatch paper and free hand scribbled some lines to emboss - I didn't want to cover too much of the paper up as it has lovely autumn leaves and ferns on. I glued on a few buttons near the bottom (after removing their shanks) to make the cute little plant pot and flowers.
The hair is part of a tassel and it's just the right colour I think.
The heart shaped sign is actually a button which I've rubbed a little gold metallic cream onto to tone down. The wording says 'How does your garden grow?' Quite appropriate for this garden Goddess.
Autumn is my favourite season and I really like this doll and can just picture her in a pot plant - or hanging up in my dining room - maybe I'll forget to enter her into the challenge!! As she was so quick and easy to do though I think I'll make another to keep for myself.
