For Christmas, we decided to do an Art Doll swap. We drew names, and I picked one of my favorite art friends, Anne. I call Anne my art angel because she always loves whatever I do and cheers me on with encouragement and support. I wanted to make her something special. I gave Anne her doll before I could take a picture, but "Grace" (at left) is very similar. The head and body are from an Invoke Arts stamp. I made her skirt out of plaster wrap because Anne and I took the plaster art class together. The byzantine paints I used for the skirt and blouse are ones that Anne gave me. I added embossed grungeboard pieces and wings that I stamped onto a cardboard coffee holder to remind her of our group meetings. Anne loved her!
