Woodland Sprite # 2

This is a Doll I love making..I learned it from Pam Grose at Anne Hesse's MM & M last September. .Pam is a fantastic lady and a inspiring teacher.She was up at the crack of dawn ready to play and She hung out with us teaching her techniques late into the night ,I hope one day to take another workshop with her,
   This Sprite I made with two friends of mine Susan and Doreen we spent several Mondays working on them together.Both their dolls came out really cute too.
     Her Green Felt hat, bodice and shoes are made from one wool felt cone. I cut up and stretched by adding some soap and water. the petals of her skirt are organza that I heat distressed and  I added glitter paint to the edges .She is wrapped in black stretch velvet . I painted face and hands and I used gel pens ,H2o paints and some chalk to do her Face....Because she has a wire Armature she can be posed . I'm sure this will not be the last Woodland Sprite I make....

Hi Heather!
I was mistaken!
The current photos weren't shot with my Nikon, it was the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS.
So it wasn't until I just looked over at the camera that I saw the name!
