Babushka, Babushka, Babushka!
I thought it would be fun to have a go at doing some 3D pieces- I love dolls myself and having unsuccessfully tried my hand at plush dolls, I decided wooden dolls would be more my style. And Russian nesting dolls are one of my favourite things ever. I have just done the first coat on my first lot, and I am having lots of fun with them.
I have one lot of 10 of the rounder ones, which will be focusing on Alba and her flowers. I am saving those ones because a> there's more of them and I thought it might be easier for my first one only doing 5 and b> I like them better. I am doing the group of 5 more on my other character, Anabelle, who is Alba's long-lost sister and is the opposite to Alba. She is a nest-builder and never likes to leave her little town where everything is perfect. She has her own little cottage there with her garden of flowers and she loves it.
They will all be mixed media pieces involving some collage, and I will be documenting their progress on here.
