Day 2,and the creativity kept a-flowing!Sherie had picked up these light-boxes on clearance and brought along with her these gorgeous porcelain Charlotte dollies.
After a cup or two of coffee for me and diet Coke for Sherie,the inspiration was off unstoppable!teehee
Up first is my light box...
I had no idea where I was going to go with this until I started thinking about small items I could use for Dollie's props-Lightbulb moment!
When we were in Washington last year visiting my son and dil,Riley and I managed a newspaper full of garage sales and a map and headed out on our treasure hunt. Score! See these teeny tiny artists pigment colors in the vial-ed corks (to the left of her feet)
As soon as I remembered I had those,the"Artist"theme was no brainer!
The Color Wheel stamp behind her is a recent purchase that I had not used and was dying to give it a go-what a perfect fit!
I knew I had great art collage ephemera from my time with Altered Pages,so I gathered those pieces,and any other tiny art related bits and bobs I could find.
dried tube of paint came in a box of stuff from a sale-glad I saved it!Also on the lower right are vintage photograph oil and watercolor cakes-garage sales of course!
Pigment bottles I told you about above
And a tiny piece by my favorite artist Klimt made it's way in the box- Klimt is Dollie's favorite as well!
The hard to read stamp on the front of the transparency reads
"And away she went with her paint.dot dot"
This and the other stamp "Paint goes here" belong with the Color Wheel set I mentioned above.
Let me also mention that it was Alison Bomber aka Butterfly who turned me on to these stamps!
Thank you Alison!💜I tried to get as many photos as i could of each area and it really is difficult to photograph transparency! just saying ")
notice the paint splatters on Dollie's apron? She has been busy creating!
here is the box without the lights
a few mosaic tiles and call it complete!Chum wanted you to know he was ever constant with us and watching over Sherie. Good boy,Chum!
(I apologize for the lack of photos,of course we waited till we were packing Sherie up to take pictures of all her art!while mine I was able to do at my leisure.)
Now,on to Sherie's dollie who is an altered faerie.
Sherie's beautiful Dollie wrap is tulle sprinkled with faerie dust.
In her hand she holds a tiny bottle of faerie sparkle,to make wishes come true!
I just adore this little bell that Sherie thought to hang in the faerie garden!
The moon and stars on the back wall are a perfect match with
Red Lead's stamp...
"may the moon restore you"
a doorknob finial and beautiful leaf complete the light box!
Next up is another doll project that Sherie thought up and brought vintage glassware from her stash to make it.
Here,Sherie stamped on the transparency and cut the piece to fit in the salt pinch for her face
underneath the glass she used Tim Holtz deer painted in pink as well as a tiny frog with a crown(this is a Sherie thing~ribbit)
Such a Beautiful piece Sherie!!
Well that's all for today,I do have more to share,but will wait till Sunday for the rest,please come back then to see!
As for my glass doll,well I am a bit slower at my projects than Sherie is-teehee Sherie managed all of her projects, Plus a bunch of journaling-that girl moves a mile a minute! LOL
