Last weekend I spent a sunny Sunday making ART DOLLS at Wendy's in Torrence. She was hosting a mixed-media artist group that meets regularly to teach techniques to each other.
I convinced my cousin,Tina, to come with me and give it a try. We had such a fun day putting our dolls together. Our hostess Wendy had the wooden blocks (which were made to hold rubber stamps but she scored them stampless) and paintbrushes which made the body and the head of the dolls. Next, we shared the goodies we all brought and decided what to attach for arms, legs, hair, wings, etc. All of the dolls turned out so differently ! You can really customize this project by using your own buttons, charms, symbols, to make a gift that holds personal meaning.
Wendy is putting together kits that she will sell in her ETSY shop. I am going to buy a few for my next art get together. The kits contain all the basic components and you can customize it with your own colors and embellishments! Tina's doll came out so cool I was jealous! I will post a picture of hers as soon as I get it.

Very very cool! I'm not that much of a doll person, but these are so unique and artsy. Love them!
PS I'm in the sketchbook project too!
