Smeared and Smudged Art Doll Hop and Swap

This month the members of Smeared and Smudged have an unusual twist to the monthly blog hop theme. We have all created art dolls and will do a mail art trade after the hop. The template we have used is available from The Enchanted Gallery here.

If you are following the hop you will have arrived from Nan and your next stop is Susan – have fun hopping!

Art Doll


I used Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone Distress Inks to add colour to the arms, legs and face pieces then stamped the arms and legs with a medieval village stamp by Magenta stamps. After much deliberation, I decided against hair and a face, and opted to stamp the cracked glass and cogs from Visible Image’s Time after Time set.

I created a skirt from tulle and used a patterned paper for the bodice. To finish off I stamped a butterfly onto acetate and attached to the bodice with glue dots.
