More spirit dolls

Hi you all! These little dolls were made in my last 'play time'. They have been made from some 'my mind's eye' double-sided paper, using both sides to get some variations. The bodies have also been stamped. These are quick and fun to make, and at the moment I am trying to reduce my mountain of scraps and half used papers! I think I will mount these onto some dark paper - chocolate brown or black, perhaps, and make some cards out of them. Or put them all together on something? Or make a journal page with them? We shall see!
I got a mail from one reader asking me if these were meant to be voodoo dolls. Actually, no, that never occurred to me! ! But looking at the sentiments on these dolls - creativity, wisdom, and joy - if I could magically install these virtues into some of the miserable peeps I see every day when I go out, I would! But I need to practise first!





It is still cold, wet and windy here, and will stay changeable the next few days, but the sun did peep out here and there, so that was nice!

Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  3. These are gorgeous Valerie and love the warm colours too.
    It's wild and windy here too but not currently wet (we had that all night instead and I couldn't sleep - says she, yawning)
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  7. I think 'spirit dolls 'is a good name to call these beauties. Wet here today and a possibility of snow.

  9. Love your spirit dolls, and if it were me, I'd probably hang them up somewhere, so that every time I see them, they would constantly send me good vibes! ~tina

  10. Gloriously creative Valerie! I love your little dolls, particularly the one with the ribbon flower. I keep imagining them joined up all in line to make a garland. . . . they'd brighten up my craft room today as it's very overcast here.

  12. Hi Valerie. Hope you are doing well. The sun is out over here. Yesterday it was in the 90's. Ugh. I love winter. Your dolls are just wonderful. They don't look like voodoo dolls, they look like each has a message of hope for you. Very nice job on all three. I would say they look like faith, hope and health to me.:) Have a wondeful day.

  19. These are the opposite of voodoo dolls, what fun to make something just because. I like the owl and the orange flower additions.

  20. da ist eine schöner als die andere... Du angehende Voodoo Zauberin - LOL!

    ja wenn wir denn per Bastlen die Welt ein klein wenig weiser , klüger, barmherziger, gesünder machen könnten..wir würden garantiert den dazugehörigen Online Workshop buchen, oder?


    lg und noch einen schönen Tag!
    Übrigens je öfter ich sie hier ansehe umso mehr gefällt mir die Idee sie als Blumenstecker zu missbrauchen....

  25. These are wonderful Valerie, and I got to see them on their journal pages too. If you ever get the knack of the voodoo can you send me one that says 'sticks to her diet and goes to the gym everyday' lol xx
