Start with the idea, sketch, muse.
Pull out the old doll. If she needs some TLC, so much the better.
Plan the outfit…
Next up- prepping the doll… Stay tuned!
I found this doll at Salmagundi West in Gastown in 2011.
My first instinct was to paint on her. See my posts:
The quote “de ver la vida abierta” means at seeing life opened. Taken from Frida Kahlo’s Painting: The Bride Frightened at Seeing Life Opened, 1943.
The doll continues to be inspiring. Her next transformation stage happened yesterday. She finally got arms.
And on Sunday I purchased a lovely vintage child’s slip in FORT LANGLEY.
I knew who needed to wear it.
