This week at Inspiration Avenue, we had a special co-host, Gemma.
She chose the topic Here Comes the Sun with the possibilities of Imbolc,
Candlemas, St Bridgits Day, Brigit, Spring and so much more.
And this is my entry.
My first ever clay doll!
A Frida Kahlo folk primitive doll!
Here in South Africa we have been having a heat wave. As you can see from the flowers behind Frida,
the flowers have been loving it. The bougainvillas are bright pink, the hibiscus radiates sunshine
and all these amazing colours reminded me of Frida.
I have been wanting to make a clay doll for a while and I discovered
http://nancysartdolls.ning which is a wonderful site with tutorials,
resources and more.
I am hampered by a lack of availability of materials, but have been improvising as I go along.
I have also teamed her up with Songs of my Soul, my weekly SoulCollage
challenge here where I made a Frida card. Pay a visit and see my beautiful sunshine Frida SoulCollage
and maybe you would like to join in?
I am now working on making her house, so please come back and see the
finished cigar box house.
