I am back with another blog hop with Smeared and Smudged. This time i have made my first art doll and will be swapping it with one lucky crafter.  I used a free template for the doll and used scraps of patterned paper to cover the body and tops of the arms.

I used a paper doily for the skirt by cutting it in half and folding it to make pleats. I then layered the two halves together and glued it down. I used pleated fabric for the top of the skirt and decorated it with cogs.

The head is off a Kenny K stamp which i coloured the head and stuck it over the template. I used a free hat digi and decorated it with feathers.

the legs are decorated with the Kaisercraft grid stamp to look like fishnets and i made the boots by cutting scrap paper into a rough boot shape and added lace to the top.

The arms i stamped with a lace textured stamp to look like long gloves.

Thanks for visiting
