Well, life got me a little side-tracked recently, and my creativity has been stuck in a rutt, but I've managed to get a few things done and I thought I'd share my latest creations.

My first is an art doll ornament inspired by visions of what I hope my garden will be (since it's not coming along very well yet), meet Carri Carrot. If you recall from one of my previous posts, I'd attempted a painting involving carrots and I totally destroyed the carrot tops. As you can see, Carri's top is much nicer than those in my painting. I actually made it out of thread that I stiffened with mod podge, painted and stiffened again. I was so happy with the results that I decided to use the same technique and give Carri some stringy roots as well.

My next creation is a Moon Keeper Angel, and I really think I want to do a painting of this doll. Unfortunately it'll  have to wait, since I have a few more dolls to finish before I can start any more paintings.

So the plan for this afternoon is to get going on some of those dolls. Here's hoping that I'm able to jump start my creativity. There's nothing worse than spending a whole afternoon my studio and ending up with nothing to show for it.

Anyway, both of my new doll ornaments are now available in my etsy shop. Why not stop by and take a look. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
