What do you think..??


Good morning folks!
I hope this post finds you all well!
Here is my try on altered art dolls..lol. I tried to use as many as different foreign objects as I could come up with. What do you think? Any comments are welcome. I am hoping to learn from you guys's comments what I need to change or not. Really appreciate all the input that I can get.
The first one is made out of a wood block and an alt wind chime. The wood block is covered with tissue paper and mod podge. The bird is an old Christmas ornament. that had a hole in it, which I covered with a little mirror. The face is polymer clay made from my own mold.
The second one is a wood block stamped, painted and bees waxed. Some springs as arms, do not even remember where I got those. The cap is an old canning lid with wool left over. She is standing on an old desk leg. ( cannot remember where I got that either..lol) Her hair is a left over strip from recycled wool. Her face is paper mache, painted distressed and waxed.
Well people, that's it for today, waiting for your feedback.........
Have a great wonderful day and go and create!
Andrea.

I think they are both fabulous Andrea! Wish you could have heard me squeal when I clicked on your blog! The first one really speaks to me! Each one has so many special elements....very inspiring. I have a collection of doll heads and 'stuff', but haven't done all that much with it yet. Wonderful creations you!
