Art Doll - "Angel of Color"

"Angel of Color"

Since the beginning of the year, most of my art time has been spent working in my "Documented Life Planner". We just finished Week #12, and I'm proud to say that I've managed to stay disciplined for the past few months. That's quite an accomplishment for me, since caretaking for family has limited the time spent in my studio over the past two years.

However, as much as I've enjoyed journaling in my Moleskine planner, when I saw a few art dolls created by friends, my imagination soared to new heights, and I couldn't resist ordering a few 'blanks' from Retro Cafe Art Gallery.

I think these little dolls might become an obsession. This doll gave me an opportunity to spread new creative 'wings'. Old bits of backgrounds, sari ribbon,  jeweled bits and an antique escutcheon were used to create this little angel - a tribute to my love of color.

If you're interested in creating a special doll, check out Retro Cafe Art Gallery's extensive selection of 'blanks'. My angel began with a medium Santos doll. And, if you DO happen to order, please tell Kristin Hubrick that "Terri sent you!"
