It is fun to look back today, New Year's Eve!
...........of course having very arty photoshoots to begin the process doesn't hurt! These have a Celtic, "Mists of Avalon" feel to me....I enjoyed pullling out the old journal and browsing!

Look who I found flitting around in my garden after the mail came! (....and there was an open envelope from Australia lying on the lawn)
Alicia Cascade is her name....a midsummer fairie. She blends right in with the light greens of my maple and the lavendars of my hosta blooms!

This is Esmeralda.....she is almost finished and ready to go on ETSY.
Esmeralda is a Peruvian love goddess whose traditional color is emerald green. According to legend, if your lover is unfaithful, any emeralds he has given you will lose their color!
She stands with her hand on her hip, a shawl tied around her hips, a right hand full of love charms and a dancing shoe! (with the shawl this way, she is showing her gypsy soul!)
Now she is lifting her skirts...to show off her ankles and fishnet stockings!

Celtic goddess doll.
Standing, in the swirling mists from the waters, she pours the rivers of the world as they bubble up from her basin.
Her cloak is evocative of leather and of straw or grass....as she is also the goddess of agriculture and cattle.
[She is about 10 inches tall, and weighted to stand on her own.]

It all started with the Victorian child sticker from the package....I'm working on 2 full pages,using a lot of the magazine art I cropped a couple of weeks ago. This one is all about apricot and dark red and garden or Mother's Day...there is also the loosly tied in on the spiral wire, manila tag made by Robyn, "thank-you"....showing upside down in the scan!

These two dolls are just finished.
Busy Bee has the wildest life you can imagine! She never stops, she wears her heart on her sleeve...she is the Queen of everything and the Princess of Quite a Lot!!!!! (Which in her case is probably too much!) The bird's nest in her hair represents all of the future ideas waiting to hatch! She collects things, loves color, art supplies, sewing...anything creative! I know her very well because I am a lot like that!Her handknit sweater is a "coat of many colors" because she just can't decide which color she likes! She has sparkly aqua sequins for eyes and pink star-flower earrings.
Her striped and polkadot body is stuffed with polyfil and SAGE (for clear thinking).
The Blue moon faced doll is a contemplative crone. She is centuries old and holds deep wisdom...much of it intuitive.... the pearl she holds represents that wisdom, and the amethyst on her forehead (a 3rd eye...or the one-eyed crone?) will help her to be calm and centered. Her clothes and body are blue...midnight , royal, indigo the satin skirt has a dusting of celestial stars and the overskirt represents mists that sometimes cloud our understanding. She wears an indigo handknit sweater because knitting is an ancient art and helps to calm and "center" the knitter. Her body is stuffed with polyfil and lavendar for peace and calm. She is what I hope to grow into!
