Finished Doll from Pearl Moon's class - Mother Nature

Well, she is done. This doll sports embellishments made in the class with Pearl Moon. These include collage made with fabric, trims, and wallpaper paste, collage fabric with lace, fabric and paint, fabric pieced with strips of sheers and decorative stitches (I further pieced it by cutting the strips and then sewing them together so I had squares which were used on her bodice), cording made with strips of fabric and fibers (on her headpiece and used to make flowers), Yarn and fabric fringe all around the bottom. There was much free-motion stitching on the wallpaper paste collage fabric and that covers most of the skirt. Some of the dimensional flowers and leaves are made from bits of fabric I created on my embellisher before the class.
Her headpiece fabric was also prepared prior to class. I love making this stuff. It is a piece of painted tyvek, a sheer opal fabric freemotion stitched on top then the back of the tyvek hit with a heat gun. Neat texture! The Rainbow is angelina fibers.
