EHAG Emporium Update for May 31st

She is a Gourdhead doll! I applied paper clay over the gourd and sculpted her face. I then base coated the head, applied crackle medium, then painted aged and sealed her. Her hair is black fun fur yarn..Hat is black felt with a tie around it and it is attached to her head. I used a piece of vintage jewelry and attached it to the sash around her waist.

Here you can see her underskirt, which is a green cotton with periwinkle dots. Her bloomers are made from osnaburg. Her shoes are painted on and aged.

You can see the AWESOME detail of this Vintahe inspired fabric! She is holding a gold glittered moon, which is a repurposed item.

"Witchs Party" is my offering for the EHAG Emporium update
tonight. This Witch is all dressed and ready for apple martinis :)..She is 24" long, and is a "Gourdhead" doll..
Please email me for more info, pictures or to purchase.
She is an OOAK Original and will come to you signed and dated by me.
Price is $95, with shipping to the lower 48 States included.

New On 'Arts a Flutter

 This month I did all "Americana" for 'Arts a Flutter
For Uncle Sam's pants & hat, and for the apron on the doll, I
used and old Flag that some of you will remember I used for display in my booth at shows. The Flag was just to worn and torn to use anymore, but I was able to salvage some of it!
These dolls are sewn from muslin, then I inserted acrylic eyes then built on the face with clay. I then base coated, applied crackle medium..then painted aged and sealed.

GLITTERFEST!!!...What an Awesome Show!

What a Great Show! I have to say that GLITTERFEST was probably the nicest show I've been a part of in years! There was some beautiful things being offered for sale, all handmade.
Sheryl Simpson of "Whimsy" put the show on and was a fabulous Hostess/Promoter! I was sitting next to Christy Silacci
and her wonderful, whimsical little Dolls! Also Iva Wilcox of "Iva's Creations", along with Kerry Howard Schmidt of "Paper Moon Gallery"..I have met both Iva & and Kerry at a show we did a few years ago, and what nice women they are! I met for the first time Jenny of "Polka Dot Pixie"...Not only is her work incredible to see in person, but what a nice person she is! :)
As you can tell I had an awesome time! I so LOVE a show that's only 6 hours, and tablespace...LOL, No setting up an entire booth!
 The top picture is my table all set up, the bottom pic is of the crowd looking out behind my table.
The next GLITTERFEST show will be Oct. 2nd, 2010!
