Here is my contribution to a swap Belinda is hostessing! She sent us a template and we were to create a fabric page using the shape....and some sort of art doll on it! Here is my art dollie.......there is an acetate pocket and a tag which reads..."In search of my Mother's garden, I found my own."
I have done some stamping on the background, a bit of chalk around the head and hands, lots of stitching and fowers and leaf embellishments! Feel free to click on the image to see a bigger picture! There are some beautiful crystals on the lace that I added for a little pretty sparkle. Each heart has the first initial of one of the girls participating. Even though the design I created is the same, each looks a bit different with the fabric colors and stitching of course! I fell in love with her and thought instead of making them all different, to go with the same! Enjoy!
