My Very First Primitive Folk Art Doll

Here is my new little handmade Primitive art doll. I had so much fun creating today! It all started late last night just after my little ones went off to bed. I have been wanting to try to make an art doll out of clay for a long time. When I was away recently I picked up a fabulous magazine called "prims" Art Inspired by a Bygone Era published through Stampington & Company which is the the same company that publishes my most fav magazine ever "Somerset Studios".

I was thrilled to find this Premier issue and couldn't wait until I could find the time to give it a try!
...As I was saying I started around 9:00 last night and forced myself to go to bed around 2:00 knowing that my little ones were going to be awake at their regular "early" hours. I was having so much fun that I had considered pulling an all nighter- but thought better of it.

I woke up early because I was so excited to get back to creating my little doll. It was the first day in a very long time that I spent creating with no regard of time. My girls would come in and out and spend time with me, creating their own work and chatting while my little doll was taking shape. They helped me to pick out her wings and her dress, the beautiful rhinestone vintage pin she should wear and the colour of her hair. We could see her coming to life and were excited to see her complete.

Many hours later...around 4:00 this afternoon I finally completed my little Prim doll. I think that she is adorable and I had so much fun that I can't wait to make another very soon! You can see more pictures of her in my Etsy shop http://www.thereddoor.etsy.com/.
