March Show & Tell part 2

Here is a late addition to our March Show & Tell. Connie had brought a picture of the art she was going to do the challenge doll from and the fabric. It's finally finished but will be going to the library display April 1 and won't be at the next meeting. She's based on a drawing by Charles Vess called "The Queen of Air and Darkness."  The body is a stump doll pattern by Di McDonald; the arms & head are modified from Cindee Moyer's "The Raven." The costume was created by free-handing & draping the same fabric as the stump-body is made from.

See you back here in April! Maybe twice - we should have some Show & Tell pictures from the monthly meeting and some from the workshop with Arley Berryhill!

Well, after a little trouble uploading to Blogspot, here are the rest of the March Show & Tell collection!

Joyce did an amazing job capturing the expression, posture & color in this Modigliani painting for the March challenge.

Can you tell if this is the doll or the painting?!

Sherry P brought this darling little sprite with button-tipped antennae.

Carlyn shared a mixed media box with tiny shoes made from paper.

Can't wait for next month - we'll see lots more dolls based on a work of art and maybe even some of the projects from the Arley Berryhill workshop! See you in April!


Dolling Dames in March

We set a creative challenge for March to make a doll based on a work of art. Some of our members did get their projects finished and some are still "in the works." They will all be on display at Hardesty Library during April.

Doreen made a sophisticated lady and her dog based on a work by Erte' (editor's note: I wish I had thought of that - I love his work!! hmm..future project!)

She even made the dog! It's carved from styrofoam and painted. That Doreen is so clever & talented!

This is Pam's oh-so-pretty challenge doll.
She said she chose this painting because she wanted to make the hat.

Pam always does such exquisite detail.

We have a few more to show. Check back and be sure to visit our display next month at the library!
