Faux Leather & Beaded Doll Class

Below are the 2 atc's that I completed using the Faux Leather background from the previous post. I've left the cobalt turquoise/burnt sienna one without anything on it for the moment as I want to show the girls in my atc class how it looks without any images etc on it. So these are the other two...

..."Cultivate"


and "only the young"...

I'm also thinking about running a class at Scraptivate (where I work/teach) on a beaded doll in a frame that I did a while ago when I used to make fabric soft sculpture dolls. I also loved doing beading as well so this is also incorporated too! What do you think? The size of the little doll is about 3" and is hand-dyed. The wings are made from air-dry clay and the hair is tyvek. It may be a little different to this one as I'd have to make another one as a sample but basically the same sort of thing. (Ehecatl is the Aztec God of Wind)



Thankyou to my pal Dawnie for the wonderful banner! I have several that she's made while she's trying to forget the pain in her head from a recent "tooth episode"....big hugs to you Miss Prawn!
