Just wanted to share a quick post with you today, on something artsy and new.
I haven't had a tremendous amount of art time this week, but a little is better than none at all.
I was craving to do something a little different, so as I sat there in the studio going through some stashed supplies, it came to me.
A little art doll.
She can be hung from a Christmas tree, or from a hook on the wall.
I started with her base, which is a silver plate tea spoon, I love the patina on these old flatware pieces. :)
I Drilled a hole at the top, to run through some French crinkled ribbon for her hanger.
Next was assembling the doll.
Her body is a vintage wooden thread spool.
I then, screwed in the loop hooks, and attached the pieces, to resemble her hands, and legs.
A LISTEN charm from Tim Holtz, and a bronze little hand from ArtChix Studios.
The legs are old keys, with lovely little details carved into them.
Pardon me miss, as I lift up your skirt to show your delicate details. :)
I also added some vintage tatting around the top and bottom of the spool, and some strips of lace and tulle, for a skirt.
The other side is a charm that says INSPIRE, and a little lock and key charm. I can't remember where that one came from, I have had it for some time, and it was at the bottom of my tin. One of those found treasures from long ago.
I added a frozen Charlotte head to the top, and fashioned her a hat using paper, vintage tinsel, and a wee little, old rhinestone pin.
Her look was complete after adding some elegant paper wings!!!
And there she is!
She was fun to assemble, and is now ready to adorn any space.
Hope you enjoyed the preview, and feel free to leave me a comment, so that I can Thank You for stopping by.
Off to get some shopping done before it's face melting hot outside. I think the forecast is 97 today with high humidity, hot, hot, hot!
Hope your enjoying these last few weeks of summer too!
Best Wishes, and take good care,
