Finally done!Theres been much debate around here as to whether or not the acorn came before the oak and who should give birth to who(much like the chicken and the egg)This has been my obsession all week.I've been really inspired lately to try new things and have received good advice from two people I really admire,Tricia and Elizabeth.I had intended on using paper clay but that isnt going quite well for me :) so I took my first shot at needle sculpting and painting fabric. I like her alot. I wonder about the crease in her neck though. Theres no way that its going to give because I have it wired but I would have been much happier if her neck had been smooth.Her acorn cap is made from a lambs wool sweater,dress is vintage fabric and if you look closely at her she has little strands of roots hanging on her legs and arms. The baby is made from wool felt with button eyes.I thought about sculpting and painting him also but decided to go with felt in the end. I have a mushroom girl similar to this sketched out,this time Im going to use some paperclay somewhere even if I have to hold in on there the entire time! lol thank you T and E! You will never know how much you have changed the way I look at things!
