Dreams of the Sea Dolls

I was inspired to make these little beach themed art dolls when I found the shell boxes at a garage sale.

The boxes sit on brass candlesticks that have been encrusted with chunky silver glitter that mimics German Glass Glitter.  I like round wood balls for heads and make a glammed up crown made from window screen.

It is fun to find unusual things like these shells in a glass box for the doll body.

The brass candlestick gets an upgrade with chunky silver glitter.

I like adding Ranger Stickles swirls for a bit of whimsy and decoration.

The saying is something that helps the art doll have more meaning.

These little art dolls now have their home at Sunrose Gallery in Seaside, Oregon! I hope they will go home with someone and brighten their day everytime they look at them.  :  )
