Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Fairy Art Doll ~ Mannequin

This is my newest creation.

I love dressing up these art mannequins. It reminds me of when I was a little girl dressing up my dolls. I would spend hours upon hours fussing with them.  

One of my dolls was a Toni doll, so I could not only dress her up, but I could fix her hair as well.  You should have seen some of the styles I came up with.  (LOL)

For this doll, I found the perfect size and color butterfly wings at Hobby Lobby, then went about    creating her dress out of matching color felt and added silk flowers for a bit of glamour.  Her hair is fashioned out of polymer clay, as are the tiny roses that match her dress. 

It amazes me what can be done with an art mannequin.

She is now listed in my Etsy Shop:
