Autumn Bride "key hole" doll






Do you go to bed with arty ideas in your head? I do, and for a while I had been dreaming about making some art dolls...but not solid bodied ones...I was thinking more along the line of transparent in the middle...like a window or a frame or a...KEYHOLE!!! but I often get busy and things I want to do are put behind the things I need to do and even farther behind the things I have to do and so I forgot about my dream for a while....

I lost a bet to Barb Thomas...an arty bet...an art doll bet!!!
ya see Barb was trying to get her "Aquarius" doll finished but was so busy with everything it was slow going for her, and so smart arsed me said to her "I bet you can't get it finished today"..."I bet you an art doll", and soooo she took me up on the bet and I lost.
So Barb here she is, I hope you will love her as much as I have loved creating her.

Her torso is faux patina with a key hole style and of course I had to add rust :)
