Bravura Personified has hands!!

Here's Bravura, my doll in Art Doll Cool-Aberration 2009, as she looks after visiting five of the project artists.

Doesn't she look great?! She just left Jeanne in Or who gave her polymer clay hands and a cigarette in a holder. Perfect!

This is the page Jeanne added to Bravura's journal.

Just for comparison, here's what Bravura looked like when I first sent her on her travels.

She's in CA with Robyn now, and then she visits Yvonne in TX. Then home to me! If you wanna see her visit-by-visit progress thru the project, check out the Art Doll Cool-Aberration blog.

Miss Elspeth Darkly - Art Doll Cool-Aberration

Here's Miss Elspeth Darkly, all ready to journey on to visit Barb in NY.

Elspeth originated with Karma in SK, Canada. She's a private eye type trying to unravel the mystery of Fifi, the kidnapped poodle. She's at the masquerade ball now, where "all will be revealed".

I painted Elspeth's upper torso to match her facial skintone, and made her a polymer clay roller skates charm that dangles below her skirt, and a paper mache umbrella rifle.

Here're my journal pages continuing her story.

Elspeth's journal is kindof different and fun in that it's become like a mystery story that we each add a chapter to. Check out her whole story on the Art Doll Cool-Aberration blog.
