Look at all this wonderful fabric art that I received in the mail this week !!!! You can imagine the excitement opening my parcels!!! Lots of oohhing and aahhing.
The pictures in order, from Left to Right..... firstly the most gorgeous fabric house page which Belinda Schneider generously made for all of us girls in her Fabric Doll Page swap. It is just divine!!! The colours, the beading, the cute buttons and then the door personalised with my name - I just love it to bits!!!
The dolls are made by Dot Christian (AUST), Patti Gramza (USA), Jo Wholohan (AUST) and Magda (GER). Take a closer look, they are just all so individual and beautifully done... what talented textile artists!!!!
This second photo shows the back of the front cover. Belinda has included all of our names in the colourful blooms.
The first funky doll is Ranga, made by Belinda Schneider (LUX), Zetti doll is by Tina (USA I think?? and the third beauty is by Fiona Mortimer (AUST). Arent they fantastic? Love all of those gorgeous fabrics and amazing embellishments.
Photo 3 is of three beautiful Icicles dolls that I received from another swap I participated in with Belinda hosting. The first blue one is by Patti G. It is so cute with its little baby icicle.. love that touch Patti. The second midnight blue icicle is by Belinda Schneider...very gorgeous her floral hat and wonderful beading and the third gorgeous icicle is from Rini. This photo doesnt do it justice...beautiful lac and turquoise beading and a lovely soft face. All so different and all so wonderful.
This 4th photo is of an art doll that Belinda made for me called Kaffe. So quirky!!! I admired it on Belinda's blog and was so excited to see it in real life.... dont you just love that bow and that hot pink lipstick?
This last picture is of beautiful art doll that I recently commissioned from Alma Stoller in the USA. I had seen one of her dolls on Belinda Schneiders blog and after visiting Alma's blog a few times decided I would love one of her art dolls too. Love this little lady. She has the most beautiful handpainted face and hair. This beautiful girl will hang proudly in my art room.
Anyway.... hope you have all enjoyed my wonderful art mail!
big storm rolls through - how we are. made of where we live. how it remains what we are , where our foot palms touch the Earth, how we can go and take it. How the crows will find us.
