The Marie Antoinette art doll journal-vol1

This one is no longer available

So if you’ve read my previous blog here then you are up to date on what I am creating right now. This little project will have at least 3 volumes- there may be more if I can find the time lol.

The Marie Antoinette art doll journal is a creation of my art dolls combined with a journal. This first one I am calling volume 1 has all the grace and elegance of a princess.

I wanted this project to be fairly simple, as making art dolls alone can take quite a bit of time and work. So to create one with a journal was indeed a challenge.

However I have worked out the mechanics of this project so I feel confident that this little art-doll journal will become a great heirloom and keepsake for many years to come.

Marie Volume one is a paper mache art doll, created with paper hair- The pouf or pouffe also “toque” (literally a thick cushion) is a hairstyle and a hairstyling support deriving from 18th century France. It was made popular by the Queen of FranceMarie Antoinette (1755–1793), when she wore it in June 1775 at the coronation of her husband Louis XVI, triggering a wave of young French women to wear their hair in the same manner.[

Her dress is made of my digital song collection papers, lace, pearl, butterflies and bling. There are buttons butterflies and pearls in here hair , with a spray of pink & white roses. The journal itself is a collection of my papers including the song collection in bits and pieces. The doll base is a full box and the journal fits seamlessly into the side of the dress. Absolutely beautiful.

This is a Rose quartz doll, she is adorned with rose quartz crystal beads, designed to help one with feelings of self love, and universal love. It restores trust and harmony in relationships, encouraging unconditional love. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. Her energy field of vibration is love, happiness and abundance. Her dominate colors are rose and cream and red undertones. She has cute little cream lace gloves on her hands. Her persona is demure, yet with a strong presence, just looking at her brings the feeling of peace and love. Butterflies represent new beginnings and the tear drop pearls are like rain washing away the past. She is a regal pleasure to view indeed. Very spiritual, very healing, very loving energy flows from this one. . All the trimmings of an elegant and graceful being.

A beautiful creation over all I am very pleased with the way this one has turned out. I am working on filling the journal with pockets and tuck spots. And once I am done with that I will display this little beauty on my youtube channel. And she will be available for purchase in my web store at 111.11 and on etsy at 133.33.

Marie volume 1 stands at 11 and a half inches tall, the base is 6 and a half inches wide. She is very light weight and easy to open. The journal inside is 5 and a half by 3 and a half with a 1 inch spine. There are 4 signatures sewn into this cute little journal. And I will add many tags, envelopes and such like. This is a sneak peak of the first draft of this beautiful creation. If this one is yours you can email me for an invoice or pick her up when she hits the store sometime this week. Thanks for reading my blog, much love!

The Marie Antoinette ART DOLL project.

Greetings greetings greetings my lovelies and i am back with another blog. I stepped away from taking care of hubby for a while and started creating some art dolls. This is what i do to relieve stress lol..I love making art dolls.

My goal with these art dolls is to create mostly everything from paper even the hair is made of paper. So the dress is made of paper and I added some lace trims. Each one will have a little journal in the underside, so cute!

This is a throat chakra doll, designed to help one speak with clarity and confidence. Her energy field of vibration is love, happiness and abundance. Her dominate colors are blue with pink and red undertones. She has cute little blue lace gloves on her hands. Her persona is demure, yet with a strong presence, just looking at her brings confidence and happiness. She is a regal pleasure . All the trimmings of an elegant and graceful being.

These I am calling the Marie project. It’s a full dressed doll with a journal in the bottom. so cute! I will make several of these while i am in my down time and they will show up in my store. Videos will also come to display at some point. Right now While my hubby is recovering he is my main focus. But again i do this to relieve any stress i may encounter.

The only thing i don’t like about creating paper mache dolls is the face is usually not very handsome due to the crumbled paper used to create it with. I am working on that lol…I think I’m going to clean up her face with some oil medium.

Because she is made with wire, her head and arms can move up or down.

the back

Meet Maria 1

So i start out with just a wire and some tape and see where it takes me. lol…

I like to create the energy of aliveness even from the start, so I play around with the design. Coming to life…on your way girl. lol!

Starting to take shape and feels like beauty. lol

Put in the paper hair and the face up

I wanted her to be looking down like she is very demure. This is where I begin to shape the character of the doll into existence.

After the clay and seal I give her a dress coat of my digital paper from the song collection. Beautiful butterflies and roses. And a corset of course! lol I hang some chains from her hair root and add some crystal beads to the ends later.

This one is sitting on my desk, just looking at her is making me feel very happy inside lol. I think I will call her Marie 1…keep it simple lol.

She is so freakin pretty lol..My camera does not give a really good view, video coming as soon as Possible. But anyhoo..this is what i’m working on right now. Marie Artdolls with Journals inside.

Meet “Marie1”. This is a throat chakra doll, designed to help one speak with clarity and confidence. Her energy field of vibration is love, happiness and abundance. Her dominate colors are blue with pink and red undertones. She has cute little blue lace gloves on her hands. Her persona is demure, yet with a strong presence, just looking at her brings confidence and happiness. She is a regal pleasure . All the trimmings of an elegant and graceful being.

Meet Marie 2

I used brown paper bags to create the base

I wanted this one to be different and unusual. I like to add a little spice to the mix. lol

The Mirror shows the back of the dress. The hair on this one is synthetic doll hair, and the dress is made of paper and lace trim

Well my lovelies, these first 2 are mine to keep. They were like prototypes to give me an idea of direction in creating the Marie Antoinette art doll journal. Every thing that comes after these 2 will be available for purchase in my store. much love and thanks for reading my blog!

Greetings greetings greetings my lovelies and i am back with another blog post! Today I am sharing with you a new project i am working on. A designer line of Marie Antoinette shoes. These are little gifts and keepsake shoes with little books in them. I love making these. so relaxing, though it is a lot of work, especially making them this small. It’s all about the details lol..but I love it. The first set are not for sale..the second set are for sale.

January 2020

I will post EAch one as they are made. I will try and do a video about each as well. This is what i am working on right now. Taking a little break from making journals in general, traveling with craft fair and working on my designer Marie Antoinette shoes. Thanks for watching. Much love.

Each little shoe is created with my designer papers and covered with the finest laces , trims and bling I could find. I created my own shoe pattern but there are many on the web. I like many others, am also fascinated with Marie Antoinette so the design idea was a pleasure.

These are miniature shoes and can fit in the palm of your hand. A lovely little gifty keepsake. Each shoes comes in a box covered with my designer paper as well. They are so cute!

I wanted this one to be all about the rose pattern in my designer paper, so I created around that idea. All about the roses. I then thought about the kind of shoe I would design if I was back in that day, for someone like Marie. She ,..We are told…was over the top and very flamboyant. I love that! So it gave me release to go over the top in all my shoe designs. Yes! I am in creative happy land right now. much love.

These little shoes are very special to me. They all come as a keepsake with box and journal.

The heel on this one is made from a large pearl
