Artist's Trading Blocks

This has been a great summer class.  I have learned lots of new techniques and am just amazed and stunned at the talented people taking the class.  All of the dolls are fabulous and so very original.

Here are my Artist trading blocks from the Artful Gathering's class - The Imaginariam: Anthologies of an Art Doll.  They are made from wood and chunky enough to stand on their own. One of the techniques I just love is making stacks of beads on a headpin and adding them to doll and even the chunky ATB's.

 I also purchased this lovely doll from my instructor Mary Jane Chadbourne's Etsy shop.  The Butterfly Queen was from the series she completed last year and provided the inspiration for the current class.
