I made this doll and ATC for a swap on the Flickr group
The theme was 're-birth' and I went with Japanese flowers.
I started off with an ivory coloured domino and attached
a wooden stick with round shape at the top -
pefect for a head!
I painted hair and facial details onto the 'head'
and dressed the body with a kimono made with Washi papers.
Some flowers are attached at the waist.
She needed some shade from the Spring sunshine
and what better than a cocktail parasol!
I made a little holder from a thin straw
for the parasol which I attached to the back of the doll.
For the accompanying ATC I used more Washi paper
for the background and stamped the girl onto white card
for the face, and more of the paper for the body.
(The stamp is from an acrylic set by
Hero Arts CL297)
Thanks for looking x
