MOON RAISER DOLL ~MOONRAISER~ FINISHED

  I finished the Moon Raiser Doll today. This was a fun online doll class given by Patti LaValley. She is a mixed media doll with a cloth coverd mask and paperclay moon. I made her a necklace using bicone crystals and faux pearls.

 I wrapped a white satin flower around the stem and embellished the bottom with silver glimmer silk leafs and an lace rosette to the center. I gave the moon some craters for texture and then painted with a pearl essence color wash before shading.

THE ELF IS FINISHED

I finally finished the Elf Up on the Rooftop today. This project took about 3-4 weeks to complete. I took an online doll class that Kathryn Walmsley teaches at "A Is For Artistic". The class is quite an undertaking and has a lot of detail. This is my first paperclay doll class.

 I added the hair, collar, cuffs, holly trim, drum and the jumping jack. The jacket is made with red sparkle satin and is fully lined. Yellow pearl beads embellish the front. The gold sleeves are silk and the shoes are glued in place, but next time I will hand sew a pair. I really don't like to use glue.
