This is the latest doll I have started. The idea comes from a couple of sources. Years ago I saw an article on this amazing artist who makes sculptures out of books by folding them. I had a go on an old copy of Sense and Sensibility-it is up on the book shelf. This one is a book I bought in Scotland recently on football coaching. I liked the illustrations and the cover. I like it even more now as the middle of the skirt. The other place I got the idea from was a picture of a doll with a folded paper underskirt. (Picture a long way down in this post)I am going to use papier mache to make the body and head. I used to do quite a lot of papier mache and feel like having another go.
The adult sized chair in the nursery garden. Ancient but quite comfy. I came upon this carefully placed collection of wooden bricks on it today and liked the effect. I don't know who put them there though!
C. in my class rushed over to get me this afternoon. She wanted to show me this. Bees are very attracted to our bright yellow slide, and often stop to clean themselves or soak up the sun. We watched this one for a while before it flew off.
One more thing-I have nearly finished my sketchbook for the sketchbook project-only three more pages to go!
