A few years back I used to create Art Dolls with bead embroidery.
Here is a small Art Doll Pendant that I had never got around to finishing. Well, the other day, I finally completed beading the Pendant. And I was glad that I did. It always feels great to finish a project.
Stacey Apeitos and Arrigo Dorissa set themselves a challenge to create 100 Art Dolls in 2008. But the great part of the challenge is that it is not about meeting deadlines. Their "challenge is to learn about themselves and set intentions for their lives, using Art Doll making as a tool."
Whether you make Art Dolls or Shrines, you can join in the challenge. I am really inspired by Stacey's My Personal Pantheon which you see below. I love the original idea, the unique shapes and colors.
It's been a long time since I made an Art Doll. I need to include Art Dolls on my project list.
