Art Dolls Only Elements Challenge - Earth Gypsy Dancer
I actually started to make this doll a few years ago and never finished. She only had a body when I discovered her in my unfinished dolls box, so I added her face, hands and feet and then her embellishments brought her to life. She has a bit of a Water element in her but her name is Earth Gypsy Dancer. It feels good to create dolls again. I believe I AM getting the creative spark again. I have been so busy with my yard and other house things that I haven't had time to devote to my creative art. My creativity has been with my garden which I dearly love as well. When the weather is nice up here in the PNW I just have to go outside!
I am busy now with my fireplace surround. I am creating a freeform mosaic design. I have lots of glass to cut and lots of gluing to do. I guess I'll be back to doll making after that though! Now, for some jewelry...maybe that too!
