Christmas projects

I am playing with Paverpol again. This year I have a couple of ornaments to make for doll club and a wedding doll challenge.
I started with white lace and "arranged" a wedding dress from the wet paverpol'd lace. You can see the face and veil at the top...I haven't started them yet.

I started 2 tassel dolls also as ornaments for the gift exchange. You can search this blog under the paverpol tag for a tutorial I did 2 years ago making these ornaments.

New Fairy Doll

This past weekend my doll club had a mini-retreat and we all worked on the same doll pattern...Grapevine Girls by Alison Marano. Here is my fairy I made with her pattern...I changed the hands as I didn't have time to let the paper clay dry. The wings are made out of liquid sculpy and wire.

Making Needle Felted Dogs

The Valley Doll club made needle felted dogs at our meeting on Sunday. I made a pink one to go with my pink haired Dolfie...she still needs her face painted...I am behind on that...but she has a dog...what's more important?
The pics are a little dark but I think you can get the idea.
The other dogs are vintage chenille.

Pink cuteness!

Puppy love!!

Doll Retreat With Adele Sciortino

These pics are from the January Retreat with Sisters of the Cloth...I am just getting around to unloading pics from an old camera card!

The Retreat was Viva La Carnival. We used a Carnival theme for the whole retreat...which was out in Temecula as usual.

I made name tags for the retreat using purchased Mardi Gras beads with blank white medallions. I then scanned some mask fabric and used photoshop to print the names. I cut them out and glued them on the medallions.

This is the mask fabric.

Here are some of the almost finished dolls!

This is my Cat!
