I have been working on this doll on and off for the past few days - mainly because the base and gate took a long time to dry. The base is wood covered with paint, a mix of cut-up straw, wool fibers, and glue, gel medium, and more paint. The gate is floral wire, apoxy sculpt and paint. The grasses growing around the gate are from my back yard. I dried them and sprayed them with lots of coats of clear and hopefully they will hold together though I may go to the store to see what they have in the dried area. So far, I have used only materials I have had on hand. All the clothes fabrics are from my stash of vintage fabrics collected at various flea markets. The hat is two small straw hats I took apart and remade into one that fit her. I did buy the key though. May also add a vine or two to the gate but I like the airy-ness of it. What do you think?
