Well, the dolls have hopefully made it safely to Adelaide for Morphe II . Last night was spent designing and printing some promotional stickers( a few of them shown above) that will go into the mail tonight. Now I just have to finish a couple of toys that will be up for sale in the appleseed shop in the next week and then its back to the drawing board.
I haven't done an drawing for Ilustration Friday in months and really feel the need to do a bit of scribbling. This should get me in the right frame of mind to start my pages for the Design a calender swap, which I'm really looking forward to. Not to mention a few swaps that have been put on hold until the Morphe dolls were completed.
These are the tags that went with my submission - I found an old typewriter on Ebay and it was perfect for making these. I think that the old typewriter and I are going to have a long and happy relationship.
A few people have asked about the knitwear that two of the dolls are wearing...did I knit these tiny garments???No, indeed I did not! I felted two old holey jumpers and did a cut and sew- still fiddly but not as time consuming as knitting them would have been!
After making these largish size dolls, I had a hankering to do something on a tiny scale.A swap to make something art or crafty that fits into a matchbox was exactly what I after. I have almost finished a tiny cloth doll about 3.5cm tall...... she is based on the circled drawing and still needs some arms and legs. After that I'm thinking of painting her and going from there.
Found some new bits and pieces to go into the (mostly) old paper packs .....and what to do with these old bits of paper? Here's one use for the sheet music...
