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”.
