So it's admittedly been a few rough months at the Magpie Nest. But, just as winter needs to be knocked off your boots, sometimes, sadness does as well.
So I logged back into www.craftster.org and decided to sign up in a fairly low commitment swap. There's a fabulous artist called Junker Jane who makes these amazing at dolls. I was really interested in giving it a try, so I joined the swap for Junker Jane inspired dolls.
It was certainly a challenge, because folk spend a lot of time working towards"perfection" in their art and this was definitely thinking outside the box! But without much more ado, I give you my Junker Jane inspired dolls!
My swap partner loved birds, so I made her a primitive goose as an extra!
My first attempt at a JJ doll.
Doll #2 - From a loose sketch I did
And the whole gang!
I actually had a really great time just letting loose and being creative!!
I encourage everyone to try something new and shake off the winter dust!
