I always have time to create over the holidays and this year was no exception. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but looking around my studio, I noticed several body-less heads and decided to complete them. These two heads are from the workshop I took from Joyce Cloutman this past summer.
The first little head was turned into a tree-doll ala Cyndi Mahlstadt's style from the workshop I took at EDAC. The birdcage is actually a pendant that I found at Michaels from Blue Moon Beads (I don't remember it it was the Tokens or Lost & Found line, but it was one of those). When I saw the birdcage, I knew I wanted to use it on one of these tree-dolls. The little birds are also from Michaels.
I decided to make a wired body for the 2nd head and turned it into a little forest elf. I gave him a bit of a belly. His hat is a piece from a potpourri blend with little acorns glued on top.
His hair is tuffs of rabbit fur and his shoes are polymer clay.
Now there are a few less body-less heads in the studio.
