I've Been Busy!

Apart from getting new items ready for my Etsy store (http://www.susiemcmahon.etsy.com/), I have been working on my ADO 'Elements' challenge piece - here are some w.i.p. pictures. I need to get a wriggle on with this because I only have about nine days to get it completed. I'm calling this piece "Aeris - an Airy Wraith".
I also have this new head ready for a body. The glorious Tibetan lamb wig is from http://www.dollmakersjourney.com/ and was part of my prize for winning the 'Discworld' challenge. I got to choose stuff from their wonderful online store - I chose two colours of this Tibetan lamb (each piece is big enough for three or four wigs) and a yard of wool blend felt in a yummy cinnamon colour - I'm planning to use it to make some dolls with moulded felt heads, which is something I haven't done in a while. Dollmakers Journey has a great list of quality stuff for dollmakers - worth checking out if you haven't yet done so.

I will most likely be posting some new things on Etsy this weekend.

Fantastic so far! I just love your dolls! I can't wait to see her finished!

Susie McMahon said...

My goodness, Moriah! You were quick off the mark......I just finished that post a few seconds ago!

If I'm not too tired (and fall asleep in front of the TV like I usually do) I'll try and get more of this done tonight - I'd love to get it done by this weekend, but unfortunately I have to go to my 'real' job for the next two days (High School Art Dept) so chances are not too good unless I burn some midnight oil.

Great process pictures Susie. I can't wait to see her finished. I am working on an earth element piece. I did not have my camera at the studio to take progress photos. I hope to get mine done this weekend too. looking forward to seeing her finished.

As usual, stunning. Just gorgeous and can't wait to see finished!

You are a busy gal! I can't wait to see your piece for the challenge finished! I can already tell it's going to be gorgeous!

Susie McMahon said...

Thanks all, for the kind comments!
I managed to get some work done on the 'Air' piece last night instead of falling asleep in front of the TV - she is no longer held together by pins, and her head has been sized ready for painting.
Might have another go tonight after work....and taking grand-daughter to dancing......and cooking dinner......and doing some laundry. Well.....maybe tomorrow night!

She's beautiful, of course! Can't wait to see the finished product.

I'm ashamed to say that my poor Hamlet/Romeo (yes, I'm thinking about changing him because, let's face it, a rose is much easier to make than a skull) is still in pieces. The traveling doll project has pretty much taken up all of my dollmaking time for some time now :(
