Meet "The Leaf Princess"!
I worked one afternoon on faces. I used an acorn cookie cutter to get this face shape. I also used brass tubing to make the indents for the eyes the nose and the mouth.
The leaves that surround her face were from a Lisa Pavelka border mold.
I used yarn for her hair. I tied strands of yarn around a length of yarn. I remember my baby dolls with hair had rows of hair so I made two layers of these strands for the crown and the back of her head. I made two smaller strands for each side of her face. I used super glue to hold the yarn in place.
I wanted to add some words that had meaning to me. So I stamped a scripture in the green at the bottom of her dress. Jerimiah 6:16 "...ask where the good way is and walk in it."
