Ride 'em CowGirl!
Here is my latest art doll ... a cowgirl!
She was fun to make. Instead of papers, I used fabric on her, western themed with jeans, paisley and a gingham scarf. She has a leather belt (which I cut), embellished with a metal heart to resemble a large belt buckle. Her hair is cotton doll hair and her face is a large, flat bead which I painted. You can't tell from this picture, but she actually has LARGE BOOBIES underneath the shirt, made with buttons. A crafty coworker gave me the mini-cowboy hat and, with a few stamps, that completed her look!
I love making these art dolls, they're so fun. I already sent my first one off to my assigned swap partner, but I have yet to receive one. I can't wait!
