Meet Faith and the Hunter of Dreams

I have been taking a class with the wonderfully and creatively talented Joanna Pierotti the creator and owner of Mosshill Studio. I have been a fan of Joanna's work ever since I saw her first doll on Ebay a number of years ago. And now she is offering up her knowledge for all to share in her excellent workshops. I couldn't get over there fast enough to sign up. So go check it out and maybe you too will be inspired to create your own doll. I call this one Faith. It was so much fun and so relaxing for me in the short time increments I could get into the studio to work on her that I know without a doubt I'll be creating more!

And this is a new collage I need to get listed in my Etsy store, The Papier Cottage. That poor store is woefully ignored, and with fingers crossed, my goal this year is to get it stocked up with more art work. I call this one Hunter of Dreams. I am absolutely in love with this image so don't be surprised if you see her again, even, possibly, maybe ;-) in a collage sheet.

My mom told me I hadn't posted anything on my blog for a week or so and it was getting boring. Is this better mom? :-) Love you!

And thanks mom for gettin' this girl off her "butt" and back to her blog...I often ask her "where would she be without you?!?!" :)


Yes, Gail, much better :) hee hee

Is that a stamp done in molding paste at the bottom of the collage ?? If so, what kind do you use.....any tips ??

Hi Gail:

Your doll is fabulous. I've always wanted to experiment with mixed media dolls, but alas ~ I barely have time to keep up with all that I'm doing now.

I remember Mosshill Studio from back in my eBay days. Sometimes, I miss those good ol' eBay days!
