It sounds like something right out of a Hitchcockian film...
Rather macabre beginnings for a new doll;
involving borrowed body parts!
I salvaged the old wooden legs and vintage infant shoes
to incorporate in NEW (and improved) doll!
(see August 12th post)
The head is "borrowed" from one of my other dolls...
Eventually my plan is to sculpt a "self portrait" doll head
(the charming little child I once was... Ha!)
and place it on this vintage box body.
I designed a faux "soldered" cage to fit over the body
(it will be painted and distressed along the way...)
The tiny birdcage (Thank You Tim Holtz!) will hold
something dear to my heart.
The enameled metal number "14" just happens to
be my birthday, and the vintage glasses are for my old eyes!
And so the journey begins...
Thank you for stopping along the way! Daryle
