does not every art doll need it’s own pet cat?
albeit a bit of a creepy cat creature it turned out to be.
made up of two candle stick holders stacked on top of each other, with the addition of little pieces of this and that.
now they’re just one big happy family.
determined to be thankful for the life that’s been given to them.
taking time to smell the flowers and just be themselves.
one art doll completed!
salvaged, envisioned, sculpted, painted, clothed and assembled.
someone recently gave me a few vintage mini dictionary pages..
when i was scanning them for meaningful words to put around the neck (sorry there is no close up picture)-
the words survivor, survival, survive and survived jumped out at me.
i knew they were perfect for this piece.
i’m really happy with how it turned out.
now to get the brother done.
stone clay, old rice bag, old draw string, two salvaged candlestick holders, wire, tea stained cotton, faux fur & paint.
i’ve been hanging onto these candlestick bases for a long time,
with the idea i was going to make something out of them.
in the spirit of spring cleaning- i decided, i either do it now… or in the giveaway pile they must go!
so i took some clay and molded heads on the tops of them. (around the actual candle holder part)
