Art Doll Mace Darkmoon

I just finished a new doll. This one came together within 2 days. That is quite incredible for me because it usually takes me months and sometimes years working on one doll. This one is a bit more simplistic than most of my dolls. And it is not freakishly huge like a lot of my dolls can get.
It's kind cool how it all came together quite magickally. I had extra handmade polymer clay beads on hand to make her bone nose and teeth. I knew that would come in handy. I have made so many different beads but have not sold as many as I expected so now I will just use the extras for adorning my dolls.
I like the simplicity of this one and will be doing more like Mace in the future.
Please do go check her out in my etsy store. http://darkmoondoll.etsy.com
Thank you all hope you are creating something today!

Cloth Art Doll Mystickal Darkmoon

I just listed one of my newest creations "Mystickal Darkmoon".
I have been wanting to get a working sewing machine but through this longing for creating a piece much faster I have found patience and tranquilty sewing by hand. I think that a lot of my own energy is being put into the dolls I make by hand because the connection of the fabric in hands.
I used recycled fabrics,yarn and acrylic paints.
The story of the doll doesn't occur to me until I have completed her or him and I like it that way. But on the other hand I have been making some sketches that will be interesting to bring to life as a doll.
I am even thinking about writing little books to go with each one. My son is really good with origami and made me an origami book I could use for one of my dolls and I think that they can even turn into a comic as well.
Please stayed tuned on that project. In the meantime here is a photo of Mystickal Darkmoon her two-sides.
I hope that everyone has a creative day today!!!
