Todays the Day for all doll artists to join in the Art Dolls Only big blog event celebrating Alice in Wonderland. Check them all out from 8th July and have a great weekend looking at all the dolls on other artists blogs.
I made two Wonderland Dolls - well three really , but one is a secret !!!!
Let me first introduce Alice to you.
She is made from paperclay over a foil armature and then dressed in hand dyed silks.
I gave her blue lambswool hair because Alice is certainly a bit of a strange little girl !
And nothing comes stranger than having a pink flamingo under your skirts. That is Alice's secret ! She is a topsy turvey doll. Turn her upside down and what do you have but another doll, and of course what better than the famous flamingo ! With pink hair !!!
That is Alice and the flamingo - now see them both at once .
Told you it was STRANGE ! Now could the Queen of Hearts be a little weird too?
This haughty Queen is dressed in her best antique trimmed finery. She has a hand turned base under her skirts- as the perfect Chess piece.
Have fun down the rabbit hole !
