Garden Girl





Oops! Forgot to post this little girl I finished two weeks ago...she was one of the 3 soft body dolls I started 2 posts ago...she started out as pea pod girl...but ended up as garden girl.  She wears a "Pea Pod Helmet" created from polymer clay...and her pea stamped dressis acrylic paint mixed with textile medium.  I used all Vintage fabrics that I found at flea markets...that makes her very special to me!!!

I aslo created tiny paperclay shoes formed onto her feet...after sculpting them into the shape I wanted...I lightly stamped them with a "powdered rubber stamp" for beautiful raised texture"  ..I really think they added to this doll......

Those knees look really wonderful and you're right, the stamped texture does add to the impact of the wee little shoes. She's lovey!
