Shrink Plastic Art Doll

shrink art dollThis little art doll was created from an original 9 piece pattern.

My colorful “doodle” design was done with a black ultra-fine sharpie marker and colored pencils.

I incorporated summertime graphics into the design – a sun, a beetle, a bee, a butterfly, a storm cloud, a sunflower and some vines.

I punched a row of holes across the top of her head before shrinking, and attached colorful fibers to create her hair. I added the little purple satin rose with craft wire.

The body sections were joined using silver jump rings. She measures just over 5-1/2″ tall. I am very happy with the results! This project was so much fun!
