Hi All. It has been nice to have a blog break with my daughter but I did miss seeing all your wonderful makes so I will be back to calling around blogs again tomorrow. Hope you have had a great week to start the New Year.
At Art Journal Journey the challenge for January is chosen and hosted by Erika. The theme is Every Journal Page tells a story.
I used a piece of digital art I did in 2005 but I have made it into a book cover this time round. It tells the tale of a beautiful fashion model and the way that she really feels as she starves herself to get into the skinny clothes and stupid style high heeled shoes. A must read for the very young who think being a model is wonderful.
Go Tag Thursday have Haberdashery as the theme this week
This is mixed media with some of the tag of real sewing things finished off with digital embellishments.
Here are some photos from the last few days

Linda had crocheted some dolls and brought two of them with her for me to make hats and accessories and we also managed to make another one while she was here. The dolls are quite big with legs that move so I designed a stand to show them standing up. They're not meant as toys as that would mean a list of dos and don't as long as my arm. The clothes all take off and are interchangeable. I think they are going to be raffle prizes for charities but not sure yet.
No name yet?
Back of no name yet
I also designed a certificate and they each will have one rolled up and tied with a ribbon. It says their name and who made them etc. It also says
' adapted pattern designed by Carola Herbst.' just in case any of you fancy crocheting one. A great way to use up bits and bobs of wool.
Love Chrissie xx
