These dolls are ready to go to my four swap partners. The theme for the top set is Creativity. I don't know how creative I was here but I had some beautiful black quilting cotton with tiny gold stars that I thought would be nice for the body. I decided to make these "artsy" dolls entirely in black and gold so I painted the faces and the background for the lettering, gold. The letters A R T are rubber stamped.
The theme for the second set is Winter. The only thing I had in my stash that fit was some navy blue cotton with a snowball print. I painted their faces silver to give them a wintry feel. I particularly like the look of silver and will definitely use this colour again for future dolls.
The "tails" are gold and silver wing charms.
And now, to finish up those troublesome Icicle Dolls that I have been telling myself to complete for the past three weeks.
