Flight 32

Flight 32
My latest Art Doll

she was a 'hoot' to make, if you've not made an Art Doll yet,

I would really encourage you to make one, they are sooooooo much fun :)

I really love Assemblage art, I love taking the things that have been long discarded like this 50 year old pen nib, or the old worn builders ruler that has knocked about in a tool box for many years long since replaced by a new retractable metal one, the Vintage Optical Testing lens that was used for testing Eyes, Brass Military Wings that never saw service but were packed away with other Army Surplus for years, and there is an WW2 Badge that has been kept for years in a button jar.....

They each mean nothing to the other separately, but together look what they have made, a little piece of Art from my Heart

The face on 'flight 32' is a hand carved bone bead

and the crown is a Brass Stamping that I embossed with Embossing powder.

Hope you have a Delightful Week :)
