HAPPY IN DOLL LAND..!

With a hazy vision in my head I began assembling things I thought I might need to create a wall doll. This included brushes, all manner of paper scraps and fabric, cardboard, Sculpy modeling clay, tape, various glues, paints, wire, beads, various doll body parts and buttons.
After building the doll body I added several layers of paper mache and a small box on the doll body front.
Then the doll arms and legs were attached.
Before the unveiling of "Mirabella", you have to see the carnage of my studio work tables. It does take awhile to clean up after a project that requires so many elements.
And now you can begin to see parts of this doll: the body front with a small box attached and containing a small fabric heart.
The funny face with her rhinestone smile, some teeth missing.
"Mirabella", fabric and paper mache wall doll, 21" tall.
