This is a cloth doll made from recycled components.
Her clothing contains two different brands of tea bags (three different kinds of tea), parts of old jeans (they once were my favourite pair), a kilt and dental floss. The dental floss was dyed using Bombay Pigmented India Ink and is used for the hair.
The skin was painted with watercolours and the face was done with pastel pencils.
The doll was made in response to a challenge presented by All Dolled Up doll club.
Last weekend I visited Kiwi Gardens in Perth, just outside Ottawa. It was their 16th annual show and sale of garden art. About 38 artists displayed their work throughout the gardens. Although there were many wonderful works of art, I am going to share some of the picture I took of the work of just three of the artists.
