So I’m in the situation room, my lab,…the art room, my craft workshop…you know…lol…and I’m working on this lovely lady. She is waiting for her owner to show up lol…I’m making her beautiful lol..It’s all good!.
The Marie Antoinette art doll journal is a creation of my art dolls combined with a journal.
Each artdoll is created on a paper mache frame with a DAS clay base. I then paint them with flesh tones and create the doll body over a box which houses the little journal inside. You can see my video about my art doll journals here— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KImPqxaynkQ&t=3s They are created with the idea of Marie Antoinette in mind. I am calling each doll a volume. Anyone who appreciates art dolls and or journals can surly apreciate the time and effort that goes into creating them both. To have a little keepsake like this I am sure is one of a kind. I beautiful display and a place to journal as well. These little artdoll journals will make great gifts as well as keepsake heirlooms.
These little art dolls are really beautiful, but they are imperfect. They have some flaws and they are indifferent. I think they are interesting and gorgeous. I love imperfections. lol. It’s an “art” Doll….Why do they all have to look like super models and flawless beyond any human belief? I like to think of my art dolls as flawed beauties. lol…like humans. lol
I am calling this one Marie volume 2 and she has all the regal grace and elegance of a Queen.
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.
Meet Marie Volume 2
A beautiful creation over all I am very pleased with the way this one is turning out. She is NOT finished yet- In about 4 days she will be done…also I am working on filling the journal with pockets and tuck spots. And once I am done with all that I will display this little beauty on my youtube channel. And she will be available for purchase in my web store at 122.22 and on etsy at 144.44.
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!
Her dress is made of my digital vintage spring and the song collection papers, lace, pearl, butterflies and bling. There are buttons butterflies, roses and pearls in here hair , with a spray of teardrop pearls. She hold a fan in hand which I painted with flowers and gold trim. 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.
Marie volume 2 is a Citrine crystal doll, she is adorned with citrine crystal beads, designed to help one with prosperity and abundance. Called The Merchant’s Stone for its properties of increase in the cashbox, sparkling yellow Citrine not only assists in acquiring wealth, but helps in maintaining it. It is a stone of abundance and manifestation, attracting wealth and prosperity, success and all things good. It also encourages generosity and sharing good fortune. Citrine assists in all fast money ventures, and is especially helpful in financial speculation and for commercial success. Carry one in the purse or wallet to attract money and stop excessive outflow.
I put a lot of detail in the hair as it is made of paper. I wanted to keep these dolls mostly made of paper materials. I guess I am obsessed with creating with paper. It’s amazing what you can do with just paper and some plaster lol..
I changed her face a bit, made the nose a little more keen and added some eyelashes. This makes her face look smaller and more dainty. I generally keep the faces mostly flat and not 3d. However I was not satisfied with her gaze so I changed her. lol..That’s the beauty of being a creator, you can change things lol.
I tried to photograph her in different light so you could see the contrast.
Marie volume 2 stands at 12 and a half inches tall, the base is 6 and a half inches wide. The journal inside is 5 and a half by 3 and a half with a 2 inch spine. There are 3 signatures sewn into this cute little journal. And I add many tags, envelopes and such like.
This listing is for 1 Marie Antoinette artdoll Project with Junk Journal inside 3 signatures.
