I have been wanting to join an Art doll swap. I think I can handle this.

Hi Patti, We usually use the dominos for art dolls that are not on an atc….but, if you can make it work go for it….I’m sure once ya start playing you’ll know if you like it or not.
My curiosity is spiked!
Hugs, Dar

Patti
02-23-2008, 12:21 AM
Just wondering. Not sure I'd want to try putting 'em on ATCs, but it's just food for thought at this point. Maybe very thin dominos....

Oh MissyMonarch....would you please put a few pics here of your fab cards here for all to see?

Jitterbug
02-23-2008, 02:12 AM
I really want to try this. I will be a first time dolly maker tas well. It sounds so fun that I can hardly wait to get started. ;)

P.S. I'm glad the dolls can be a bit longer than the ATC. At first I was picturing teeny tinies.

SHeeSH.....this must be contagious....everyone getting preggy!
I love making dolls of all different mediums, and I have to say, it’s always hard to give your baby away. When we do, we make sure it has a good home…fortunately for us we get to receive one back and promise to love and adore ‘em.
For you first time mums you might want to keep your first born….and we won’t fault you if you do…..just show us a pic so we can OOOoooo and Awwwww

Note: You might think I flipped my wig or something because of the fantasy dialog, but I have tons o’ fun in the cyber world and I hope you all are too.

Ducky....I put you in hun....and I hope all goes well with you.
Ladies our friend is getting shoulder surgery but wants to be on the list and play make babies too….only thing is she’s not sure if she will be healed enough. She was conscience enough to pm me about it. My solution was if she can’t keep up that I would swap one art dolly (of mine) for one of hers when she was well and up to it. I don’t want anyone to be left out….so if any of you run into problems just please let me know so we can work something out.
Is everyone taking his or her vitamins to stay healthy and strong? And what about exercising…ok, Lamas class is tonight….get ready to stretch and learn how to breathe.
Hugs, Dar

Patti[/COLOR];45617]My first baby was ssooooooooooo big she didn't fit on the ATC. I've started some more and they just barely fit. But I'm loving them just the same. Labor pains. OHHHHHHHHHH MY!

This is very interesting! I wanted to be a good midwifey and check on any labor pains here.....good thing I did!
Awwwwww....my PO' LIL' Dear.....it's ok to have a false start....as anyone who has ever done this before could agree......you'll be just fine. Now, go put your feet up and relax:wideeyed::spinny:

Welcome to the Arty Dolly Swoop.....congrats! Pallascat

My labor is finally complete for baby number 1. He should have triplet siblings following in the next day or so. Here is his first photo. His new owner will have to take special care of him. He is very sensitive to sunlight, due to Opera watercolor paint (actually Tyrian Rose by Sennelier) which fades when over exposed to the sun. He bleaches instead of tans.
All my babies are from Alice in Wonderland and are my OWN vision of how the characters should look. The card bodies are from and Alice in Wonderland card game, so I didn't draw those, but the body parts and heads are my own. I hope you enjoy my first born: The Cheshire Cat in the Garden.

Artedarsweetfostermommyofdolliestobe my babies are on their way to you today. I hope they aren't crying for their mama too much. I know you will find them all good homes where they can happily play with other art babies. But you know that that Cheshire cat can cause the Queen of Hearts to be quite angry and the poor mad hatter is always tiresome. I am sure Alice will keep some order though....

This has been a long gestation period but the results is OCTUPLETS! I made four cards for the swap and kept an entire set for myself. These cards commemorate garments that I made in the last few years by using a scrap of the fabric for the dresses. I've combined fabric, embossed and printed paper and machine embroidery. I'm thinking this will be a nice way for me to remember these dresses long after they have gone to Goodwill.

Well, my babies have come aborning. I have five. 3 for the swap, one for the hostess and one to raise at home. I haven't decided yet which one to keep at home. Here they all are for you to admire <GGG>:D:D:D:

Unfortunately, the scan washes out color somewhat and of course the bling doesn't sparkle at all. But it's there.

Had to delete the thumbnails to make more room, but these babies can be found in my gallery in the MADE For TRADE section.

I heard half that story on the radio and mentioned it at work and near got my head bit off when I said some guy was pregnant, apparently "he" is really a "she" so wouldn't you would call her a pregnant lesbian, LOL I'm not sure whats going to happen tho, because if he stops takig his shots, does he go back to looking like a woman?

I have a brother in-law who looks like that without a shirt on!! LOL

Unfortunately, the scan washes out color somewhat and of course the bling doesn't sparkle at all. But it's there.

These gals will go in the mail on Monday.


Oh, Patti! I sure hope I get one of your kitty art dolls.

This is my first ATC art doll...she won't fold up to ATC size, is that OK? This one's a hostess card for another swap, but the rest would be similar! Let me know if it's not OK and I'll start on another idea!

What in the world are you eating missy? I want some too so's I can make BEAUTIFUL babies like yours dhawktx!!! AWESOME!

I picked up some Dover books on Arthur Rackham's work (http://store.doverpublications.com/0486460231.html)... Truly astounding and quite inspiring. Several other sites on the WWWeb revealed great sources of inspiration: Spirit of the Ages (http://www.spiritoftheages.com/Fairies.htm) (which gives you not only Rackham, but Erte, Dulac, Maxfield Parrish, and others as well) and Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/17034).

I also picked up a Dover book of ancient Japanese tales, so look for those influences to show up soon!

Nope, no legses on the bigger girls, though I suppose I could add them if everyone thinks they're needed (after all, Fairies fly, they don't need legs, really!);)

Patti
04-20-2008, 05:18 PM
I'd say they really DON'T need legs. Just delightful however you like to create them. They are very special, in my humble opinion.

Thankseversomuch! I've truly enjoyed the whole process...never really done a lot of collage/mixed media before, other than my 3D art dolls (of which I have no pics, sad to say).

I haven't done a lot of 2D (or relatively flat) art in quite a while. ATCs are great for getting me in the swing again...they're such a small canvas that I can try new things like this without a huge outlay of time and materials, only to find that a particular process didn't work! (yep, there's an ugly flower fairy here waiting to be recycled!)

And how great is it that my house is covered in fairy dust? Woot!:cute:

ArteDar
04-21-2008, 11:20 AM
