Recycled Art doll Swap Photo shoot Take 1

here is the first of several photo shoots of the art dolls for this swap

i will photo them as i get them in and have the time to post them

for this round we have 5 dolls

if they came with a name and or a story i will share a bit of it here

I plan to do a group shot of all of the dolls before i package them up to journey to their new homes.

This is Carmen she is a Flower Child
one of the original ones from the sixties yes she loves to gather flowers and take strolls in her garden
her bag is full of fun and colorful flowers
she is made from
Cloth scraps , stamps, magazines, mardi gras beads, metal nuts and bolts, aluminum foil, glass bevels, plastic orange juice bottle , dish scrubber brush, shreeded paper , foam scraps, beaded ornament, plastic flower scraps , silver jewerly and lots of love
made by Maria

this lovely pink pig is created from an old washcloth by Lani

this doll is made by Mrs Ryan MacMichael
she looks a bit like a Japanese girl in her ribbon dress
she is made from ribbon, fabric and a bottle

this Angel is created by Joyce im not sure what she is made of besides fabric of some sort

Note this doll has been revised see Flower Queen above

This is lopsided Issy she loves
the earth and tries to recycle and reuse everything that she can

Her head and feet
are made from old potpourri

her upper body is a empty plastic container her arms are a single shoe lace cut in half
the tree on her chest is a piece of fun plastic i was going to make a necklace from but it broke so i give it to Issy to use as she saw fit.

her hands are the ends of two small bead tubes , her legs are the bead tubes

her hair is a piece of plastic like string stuff that came off of a package

the bow in her hair is a broken earring , her eyes are felt pads, and her nose is a watermelon seed
