Alice In Wonderland a give away

I managed to get something together for the Alice Event,it wasn't what I hoped for and I am a tad disappointed but at least I participated.I did enjoy myself immensely and had a lot of fun doing the wooden doll shapes,I know that they wont be nearly as wonderful and glam as all the other dolls but they are kinda cute in their own way and I love them..

I could have sewn something but Hubby is on night shift so the noisy machine is out until next week,so I just had to make do with what I had on hand.

Next time I have a challenge I will order in my materials well in advance of the end date,I did for my part get some mold maker and foam shapes but I just couldn't get the clay,bumma,oh well I got to be a part of everything and next year will be better.

I am looking forward to seeing all the other dolls and seeing how you all put it together,wish I was part of the original group and had more challenges to do.

I have added a photo of what I used for this challenge so that you could all see what I was about.

I want to thank Artdolls for setting this up for us all to be a part of,its been fun.
Love to every one in this challenge xoxo

Oh I almost forgot,I will be having a give away On August the 8th,all four of the Alice dolls will be sent to the winner,so here's what you do,just state in the comment box for this post that you want to be in the draw for the dolls and on August the 8th we will do the out of the hat thing,I will announce the winner on my Blog the day of the draw!

I have done a quick design and will work from that,my dolls will be so simple and every one else will have all such special dolls but at least Ill still be in it!

His head!!

I have been unwell so I haven't been able to devote much time to the Alice in Wonderland challenge but I have done the original model for the head and will cast a mold from it this week,I so hope I can get this done,starting to worry that my health will hold me back but I'm going to try so very hard to do it!!!!!

I have been visiting the other blogs in this event and wow there is so much talent out their,cant wait to see their dolls.

I have decided to have a go at Tweedledee and Tweedledum,its like I like to make my life hard,I had to pick two dolls,I just couldn't make it easy and do one could I,Im thinking that I have a malfunction in my brain.

I thought that I would sculpt a head and do a mold so I can get the identical thing happening,then I would cast the new faces onto a foam block and paper mache the body and legs and make separate arms that move,I also think I will do most of the clothing in mache,not sure about that yet...
What ever I do it will take longer because I have to do twins,they are so cute though!

Well I think I better get off and do some work on the twins,see you all soon xox.

As I said Ive been out of action but I have managed to do a few dolly things,I made up some more wooden peeps and some rather cute pin cushions but other than that its been a ho humish.
