a mixed media paper doll

this doll is inspired by my love of folk art and my own sketchbook drawings. She has been constructed using papier mache techniques. Simple and quite primitive in style, she conveys a quiet story of her own. I like to make use of yellowed pages from old novels. The doll has simple 'stick' arms and legs. She is designed to stand with support.

materials used: paper and found text, gouache paint - her skirt and neck scarf have been made using cotton fabric that I dyed using natural plant dyes last summer. Lovely stone grey-lilac shades and hints of rust with mottling effect....

There is hand stitching and raw edges to lend a folk art feel. Her skirt has hand stitched 'pin tuck' detailing. She has vintage mother of pearl buttons shoes sewn on to her feet!

This doll measures approx: 20cm tall
