More Show & Tell

At every meeting, we have a short program, a demonstration of some technique used in doll making. Our members are so talented and so generous in sharing.This month, Barbara showed us what she learned from a Jean Bernard workshop. How to make wings from tissue, wire, Grrip glue, & glitter.
You can view Jean's tutorial online here. On that one she uses cellophane, but the rest of the technique is the same.
And, hark! Here is the rest of our Show&Tell~~
Aren't these angelic heralds simply lovely? Barbara made them from an Arley Berryhill pattern (I think). The fun thing about art dolls is the different ephemera used to create them. The herald's trumpets are... ...golf tees!
Note the bead trimmings on the hem of her dress & some on her headpiece.

This is Pam's Pretty in Pink ballerina, a gift for her niece's birthday.
What little girl wouldn't simply adore this doll?!I missed the story about this next doll, made by Shirley.(if she can fill us in, that would be great! Mercy me, I got so busy taking pictures, I missed the story about this cute little clown, too! Someone please jump in here and tell about these dolls!

UPDATE: Shirley made the antique doll & b/w clown. She has lots of pictures and commentary on her blog. Click here to see more!


February Show&Tell

Our February meeting was quite productive and VERY lively!! We made plans for our spring workshop, discussed the fall workshop and making pins to sell at the quilt show, set up a fun Challenge for next December, enjoyed a demonstration by Barbara, and, our favorite part - a wonderful Show & Tell.

Here is Shari's Hoffman Doll, returned from her travels safe & sound. Shari also finished her Dianne Little doll. She wasn't able to attend the Christmas luncheon, so this is the first time we've met her!

Laurie, our esteemed club Treasurer and local librarian, hasn't been clowning around; she's been busy making doll art!
This lovely lady greets people at the library check out desk.

Do you ever wonder what Santa looks like the rest of the year? He's just as stylin' as he is in December. This is Jayne's creation.
She also brought this elegant senorita.

These are just a few of the dolls we enjoyed seeing this week. More pictures coming!
