Maggie's Marvelous Dolls

Here are Maggie's lovely dolls from March's meeting. 

This is Maude the Saucy Spinster

THE BLACK AND WHITE doll was made using my aunt’s bathing suit, from a photo transferred onto a transparency, and Tanny’s grandmother’s head copied onto cardstock.  The pantaloons were created from wooden blocks and old lace and the black and white body and head were from a sheet of washi paper adhere to a wooden block.  I call her Maude, the Saucy Spinster

This is Sister Wife

The other wooden doll was my experiment doll.  I love her.  I stamped the face onto a piece of colored transparency paper, used a transfer copy of my aunt’s dress and put some colored legs on her.  She is holding a baby, also made from wood.  Her headdress is elaborately made from one side of a used towel bar I found at the thrift store and inked with alcohol ink then topped off with an old knob.  I call her sister-wife for no other reason except that she reminds me of one of the women on the hit show about sister-wife’s, as in you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get.

Thanks to Tanni and her help, I also made a soda pop doll.  I love to glitz my art out and this Sassy girl is no exception.  I utilized found jewels from garage sales along with metal this and that’s from the Habit store.  Tanni made me a face by inking and coloring on piece of chipboard. She is whispering “come here big boy”.
