Good morning everybody, Mrs Grumpy here again today, after another bad night. I suppose, to see it positively, having a bad night makes you want to get up, so that's some thing anyway.
Yesterday I got some work done on 2 challenges, for the *Dragons Dream*, where the dragon is dreaming of numbers, and for The Craft Room Challenge , where the ladies are playing with dolls.
For the dragon I made a tag with a collage of numbers:
And for the Craft Room girls I dug out some old dressing up dollies which were cut out of a magazine in Israel in the 60s I think, perhaps earlier. They are very tatty, and have been played with a lot, one has a sewn on head, and the other a sewn on knee!! I have put the dolls onto a simple cardboard background, reminsicent of sandy beaches, sun and sea, with a very simple decoration, so as not to distract from the dolls. I think they are actually meant to be boy and girl, but I have just clothed them with the pieces I still have....
Here they are *as they are*
This looks like summer dresses for playing....
And these were the last 2 things I found, pajamas and dressing gown, and some sort of winter clothes.
The tabs which hold the clothes onto the dollies are mostly torn, as is one of the trouser legs, but I will mend them before putting them away again.
And some of you may remember Tee's well traveled torso? Well, not Tee, but the one she sent me. Any way, she had a few days rest, so I got around to dressing her yesterday.
First I mod-podged her and stuck a layer of crumpled tissue all over for *undies*. Then I dolled her up with some pink paper from India, a piece of hand made silk from Julie in Australia, lace and a flower from June, some ribbon and roses out of my stash, and some music sheets printed from a freebie. And her belt was tied round a bottle of bubble bath! And here she is. I have called her Mrs T. Orso:
And last but not least, as a contrast programme, I made another card for *less is More*, as I at last found my embossing folder with the frame....
Okay, that was it for today. Now I am going to start painting something green....Have a nice day, take care, and thanks for looking!
