I created this little character one day last week just using scraps of things on hand. I was at loose ends. With the May Studio Tour cancelled my interest in finishing up the dolls in progress had waned a bit - quite a bit. And, the 100-mask challenge was finished. The process of making this figure and the resulting doll reminded me of some earlier doll ideas, so I dug out a box labeled "inspiration Dolls" just to see if any inspirations presented themselves.
It was fun to see these familiar faces again. The Largest doll here is about 12" tall and the smallest is close to 5" tall. Some of them became the first in a series or introduced one element that was used elsewhere. And, yes, there was a little but of inspiration.
Maybe what I should do next is dig deeper into the stash of collected items on hand and see what could happen. I have a silly vision of using up everything - every scrap of fabric, every bead and button. That would be another 100-piece challenge! It would be interesting to see what #100 would be, or if that would even be the last one! I'm not committing to that idea, yet.
In the meantime, I plan to finish photos of all the new work and get that posted on my website under a "Studio Tour" tab.
