Mixed Media Art Doll Della


I used a paper clip looped through the back hole on the vintage metal clip to get the doll to hang from a thumbtack. She was hanging on the wall at my work. You can hang her normally from the hole on the handle, I just used a paper clip because the thumbtack head was way too big to fit through the hole so I had to improvise.

I will sometimes take my art work to work and hang it up so I can critique it throughout the day. My daytime job is designing for lumber company, so I'm on the computer the whole time I'm there. That gives me plenty of opportunities to glance over and give her look over.

I originally started with the binding from a book as the main body and then it just evolved from there.   Everything came together except for the arms. They were originally the hands with wire showing for the arms, but that just didn't work too well for me. The wire blended too much with the background, so I opted for paper sleeves.
