Today's post will bring our 3rd annual Art Sisters Retreat to a close.
We truly had so much fun and shared so much love and creativity~it was difficult to say goodbye to these lovely gals!
no more tears,there is always the next gathering!
on with the show!
Each morning walking in to the art barn was like this-
Our table over-flowing with artful goodness and the excitement to create became overwhelmingly too much to contain!!
So naturally- we dove right in!
and yes,crazy Chum! has to be included as well! teeheehee
Today's project, mine is our last.
I designed a fabric doll,inspired by Pinterest and my favorite doll artist Danita.
To save time for the class,I traced,cut and sewed the doll bodies in advance,
this so the girls could get on with the turning, stuffing,stitching and painting.
For the class,I did not present a painted doll as we are all at the same painting skill level and we all work at our own designs,letting our imaginations run wild!
Thank you DecoArt!
We also used many other of DecoArt 's acrylics as well as their Fabric Medium to aid in the sealing of non-fabric paints.
On to the dolls and their makers!
Up first is Pammie and her doll
I love Pam's expression as she works so intently on her painting! ")
Pam thought to go Ballerina at first...
I just love the colors she chose!
somewhere during the process she changed her mind to a fairy doll
Pam's doll is gorgeous and her ideas of what comes next are fabulous!
Love the sparkly legs and Tulle skirt!
Can't wait to see the finished doll and added embellishments!
Beautiful doll and beautiful Pam!!
I have to tell you,the really cool thing about this class and project was that each of our dolls were so different, each had their own personality brought out by the creator!
Up next is Sherie and her rocking doll!
Sherie never holds back when embellishing and her pieces always lend themselves to turning out fantastic!
Just look at this determined expression!!
After trying many different looks on her doll,the copper frilly scarf had to go!
just our opinion of course! LOL
Much better choice of neck scarf and
don't you just
love the button placement and the beads down her sides- so cool!
Sherie used Lynne Moncrieff's stamps on the back of her doll~
wish I would have thought of this~I love it!!
again, Lynne's stars stamps on the front of the doll as well
Sherie posing with her doll~
and don't you just love that t-shirt? designed and created by Sherie!
On to Karenliz's doll...
Karenliz was inspired by a doll on Pinterest
and it was totally her style!
Isn't this cool!! I just love her arrows and her bow on her head!!
and yes, those crazy goofy teeth are pretty awesome as well!
Great job K-liz!!
here we have Karenliz's doll and mine unfinished posing together- see what I mean about absolutely different styles?
This brings our retreat to end for this year.
I will leave you with a few photos of us posing for the camera!
Thank you so much for visiting and your lovely comments~
I can't say enough,
just how much they mean to me! 💜
