Ghillie is home!




Our round robin is coming to an end, and my little Ghillie has come home from her travels! She started out as just a torso and head with a bit of an identity crisis...she wanted to be an elf, but decided that most elves seem to be male so she was helped along the way to develop her own true identity as a woodland faery!
Fran gave her hair, ear studs, and a lovely necklace. JudiW in her own unique fashion gave her a "crown of thorns" gourd skirt....how cool is that? Sherry made her a darling little hat and a bodice for her bare little torso. Natalie gave her a much needed make-up job, some cool fairy wings, and some painted embellishments for her bodice.Then JudiA gave her the means to be able to stand on her own with a charming wire stand, embellished with her(Judi's) new favorite creative tool....Apoxie! She added more apoxie vines and flowers at her waistline. Finally Jandee created the most fascinating arms made of heavy wire and some kind of coil, with beautiful clay hands, and puffy sleeves at her shoulder! Is this not the most adorable faery you've seen lately??? Thanks, everyone, you did a most wonderful job, and I love her!

This is truly an "Art" Doll. It's fun to see how she came out in the end.

WOOOOHOOOOO!!!! She's beautiful!! Eveyone did a fantastic job on her.
I received my RR doll today also. WOW! I'll post pics on my blog later.

Love your RR Doll. Now I have to finish working on Pammy's RR Doll and put her in the mail so she can go home to her Mommy. :-)

I truly loved working with all that was in this RR Doll.
Love & Hugs

JudiA said...

The coolest thing about RR dolls is that there is next to NO chance that anyone would EVER think of the steps to make one on their own, and Ghillie is one of the best I've seen (she remarked...humbly... :-)She is magnificent! I have to laugh though... When I saw that gourd that JudiW added, I almost cried wondering what I would do to her.

OHH this is one of the most amazing dolls I have EVER seen and I've seen a majillion! You're very blessed with a wonderful group of artists who worked on her and made her who she is, what a wonderful Ghillie!! A gourd skirt and those arms, amazing! Love her wired bottom too, just blows my mind! Everyone did GREAT on this one! Take care, Lisa Risler

Mary....she's enchanting ! Looks like she stepped out of a children's fantasy story...

I wish she were mine.

I've never seen anything quite like her.

Amazing....her face has such character, and I can't stop looking at her eyes....she's very, very cool.

I'd love to have her sitting in the corner of my living space.
