Inspired by Linda B

I've had this flower doll head half finished for months and today I finally did something with it and made this corrugated cardboard plaque.
The idea for this came from a great art blog, listed in my faves...Eclectic Visions of an Altered Journey.
This lady has made some seriously fabulous art dolls so, as soon as I got my polymer clay and face mold, I was itching to have a try myself.

It's my first attempt so a bit basic but I'm looking forward to playing some more with these clay faces.
I have plenty already made and have a few plans for those others when I get the time.....maybe for Christmas????

Here it is in more detail. The flowers were stamped onto Grungepaper which had been coloured with Distress Inks.
The big flower and the flower stamped onto text are both from a set by Elusive ImagesStamps while the tiny flowers used stamps by Crafty Individuals and Hero Arts.
The flower stitch stamp is from a polmer set called 'Messy Stitches' by Katy Pertiet at Autumn Leaves.

This is very different and I really like it. I haven't played with clay and not seen any moulds. Look forward to seeing what else you make with them. Lovely. x ChrisB

Oh that's a good idea - I have some clay but no face molds - must try to think of something to make.

Thanks for the inspiration - this looks sort of oriental like those masked play things they do.
