ABCDolls

In May I posted about the Dayton Art Doll's adventure of creating an alphabet of art dolls. The face of each doll is a Scrabble tile, and the colors and doodads on the dolls somehow relate to the letter on each doll. 
     The group photos were taken today, (thanks to Daved for the beautiful shots!) and here is a sneak peek at a few of the dollies. They are a beautiful group all together, as well as each one on its own. There is something about the little community of dolls that really speaks to me. Our next step: putting a little book together for each of us to have a record of the process and the done dollies.

  4. "Z", aka Zipperella, (created by Diane McConnell) is a doll form wrapped in a zipper and then beaded. Diane also made the coil hair herself. When she picked the letter, Z, we kind of figured she would end up with a Zentangle doll. We should have known to expect the unexpected from Diane, who is always full of ideas!
