SMEARED INK DAY

It's my day to post on the SMEARED INK dt blog..... and as we on the SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM have held an ART DOLL swap..... something i have never done before ...yeh i alter china dolls... but i'd never made a paper art doll..... i'm showing off the Mr Poe side of my doll.......
The face/head are from the SMEARED INK , QUOTE THE RAVEN rubber plate.... my favourite set!..... his body has story titles on and his limbs depict these stories to my mind.
I have distressed the edges but let it black 'n' white.http://craft-roomchallenge.blogspot.com/ THE CRAFT ROOM , has as a theme this fortnight PAPER DOLLS......so i am going to show the reverse of Mr Poe as well.................

DIFFERENT hey?


This side is painted with acrylics.... and over stamped with toning colours..... i used the swirls off the SMEARED INK GODDESS SET for those.... i made a clay face..... its a little kooky/quirky..... but i think it looks 'kind' and added gems around the face.... this side as a glittery glaze over the top....


my doll show both sides of my personality.... oneside quite dark, mysterious/and morose.... the other quite tranquil/ peaceful and hopefully kind!


I shall enter this doll into the following challenges


http://takeaword.blogspot.com/ FANTASY.... ii like to think it is.


http://thethreemuseschallenge.blogspot.com/ WHIMSICAL/QUIRKY / HUMOUROUS..... 2 out of 3 for sure..... Poe looking like a ballerina is quite humourous to me as well.... so maybe all 3?


http://www.bellichallenge.blogspot.com/ THE LETTER 'G'..... gems and glitter...both things that i try very hard to forget i have!


http://phindysplacechallenge.blogspot.com/ BLACK AND WHITE... the Poe side is black and white...so i'll only enter this side!


Thank you for visiting me today.


love lynx
