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 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!
