Harriett was put together by layering her face with bunched up tissue paper and sealed for strength. I gave her larger eyebrows and painted her many shades until I decided I liked this one.
Do you know what her body is made out of?
That's right! An old hand grenade. And below is a skeleton hand that I painted as well. I love how the finger is right inside of the ring. Don't pull it Mr. Hand (not a South Park reference by the way)!
I was thinking about what a rush I get from putting a doll like this together. Thinking of the theme, the items to use and then having it all fall into place. Why should I wait for a special occation though? I think I need to require myself to make one funky doll per week. I really should sell them but I get so attached. Must get over that!
And on another note..... I just HAD to share this with you as well. My little munchkin came into my room and said, "Want to see the doll that I made?" Imagine the smile on my face when I saw what she had done. She said, "I ripped the head off and made it new arms". And you know what? I was really proud of her and love that I can give my children the gift of creativity. It keeps me sane, some of the time, lol!
