Ich traum von Rost

I have been taking part in Linda Baldock's amazing international art doll swap. This is my creation, and she is now on her way to her new home in Germany, hence the name which means "I dream of rust". The work from the 80 plus participants is stunning, whether people are making their first art doll, like me, or are experienced art doll makers. I have had so much fun. seeing all the work, and am very excited about the doll that is on its way to me, I've seen a pic and she is a beauty.

I am also using this in the Happy Daze Facebook challenge where the new theme is dollies - anything doll related - altered doll, new made doll, work using stamped or collage images of dolls, card, ATCs, fabric, canvas etc. Closing date is midnight Sunday 12 June and as usual one entry will be drawn at random to win a £15 Gift Voucher. Maximum of 3 entries per person.

Black and White

I went a little "old school" with this case. It started life as a papier mache box, I've papered it with Delish Designs Peppercon papers, added flowers made with Ten Second Studio metal and lace, I love a metal lace combo, and the lid has a base of black acrylic paint with a thick layer of white Viva Croco crackling over the top. I am using it as a sample piece for the new challenge on the Happy Daze Facebook page - Black and White.
