Mixed Media Monday - Leftovers
Beth is hosting on Mixed Media Monday yet again (thankyou) , and has come up with another inspired idea for a challenge - "leftovers". I had so much fun with this! The doll's body is made from an empty stubby beer bottle that I enjoyed on Christmas day :-) I covered the bottle with some deli paper sprayed with color mist sprays that I had left over from another project. The piece over that is cheese cloth dyed in coffee, also a left over. Her necklace is made from the bottle cap from the same bottle and the collage was made with left over elements, apart from the gorgeous little gold bird charm. Her wings were cut from a soft drink can and embossed, then painted gold. Her buckle was made from the ring pull from the can, and the ribbon arrived wrapped around something I purchased online. The doll's head is from a plastic doll - with all the hair removed and then painted to look similar to a porcelaine doll and her hat is made from the same cheese cloth as the over dress. I named the doll "Second Hand Rose", for obvious reasons.
