Geisha Art doll

THIS ONE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

So I’m back in the lab again lol, my lab,…the art room, my craft workshop…you know…lol…and I’m working on this lovely lady. art doll journal is a creation of my art dolls combined with a journal.

Each art doll is created on a paper mache frame with a DAS clay face cover. 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 started with the idea of Marie Antoinette in mind. Now I am just following the enegery of creating. So this little geisha is being created now. I am calling each doll a volume.

Anyone who appreciates art dolls and or journals can surly appreciate 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. A beautiful display and a place to journal as well. These little art doll journals will make great gifts as well as keepsake heirlooms.

Meet Geisha artdoll she is what I am working on now. once I finish her and her journal she will be available for purchase in my store and etsy. I will post new pictures as she progresses.

Once she is done i will show her on my youtube channel. If this one is yours you can email me for an invoice or wait for her to hit my store . And she will be available for purchase in my web store at 122.22 and  on etsy at 144.44. much love/

The beginning

Again using detailed paper mache hair and a painted on face. she is coming along nicely. The faces are imperfect and some what indifferent. I simply paint the face on no 3 d effects. Keeping it simple. lol

I do a simple painted face with a sculptured nose raised to give the face some contrast and definition. Afterall this is paper mache lol

Working on her clothing which is a combination of my digital papers and some beautiful india sari.

Here i give you the finished artdoll on the box with a view of the journal cover

And now lets go inside the journal and look at some of these beautiful pages.

I wanted to imitate my large file folder lap-book journal in this one, and it is so divine in a smaller version.

I used the vintage spring papers and the song paper collection for this one, with a few other of my paper collections in between.

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!
