Here`s my first go at doing an art doll assemblage.
It`s body is a vintage buckle and beads for the arms and legs . The head is an old watch face of a watch of mine , with a picture stuck in the back . It spells angel , with the old typewriter key , cork letter "g " , and 2 moon face charms for the feet, and a letter tile in the middle of the buckle.
The halo effect is done by flattening a bottle cap and colouring with alcohol inks in gold.
There`s not much to see of the beaded chain as well i put on so i can hang it up .
I got my inspiration from Jeanette Janson`s website , listed at the bottom of my home page.
This picture was emailed to her this morning , my time , as there`s a time difference of 5 hours approx.
here`s her own words that she wrote ...
I love this !! It`s adorable !
Don`t worry about people not "getting " what you`re doing. They will understand soon enough and admire your individuality.
I think you did a wonderful job on your first doll , it looks like you have a real vision for altered art.
I told her that my partner had seen nothing like it , and just got a " Hmm " from him ! That`s why she wrote the above back to me .
All i can say is ... a BIG THANKYOU to Jeanette for her comment , it`s given my self esteem a real boost !! And just to do what feels right for you , and if it " speaks " to someone else , then that`s an added bonus !
