July Show & Tell (pt 2)

In this post, you'll see all the dolls we brought for the Tulsa State Fair rep to view. We're trying to help them understand that art dolls encompass a wide range of materials & styles. We're not talkin' baby dolls, crocheted dresses and Raggedy Ann's here! (Nothing against those sweet things but art dolls are not the same thing.)

Some of these you may have seen in previous posts, but it's always fun to see them again. WE enjoyed revisiting some of our favorite pieces.

July Show & Tell - pt. 1

There be DRAGONS!

Carlyn brought a work in progress. He's going to be awesome!

We have a lot to show from the July meeting! We welcomed a representative from the Tulsa State Fair to our meeting. We wanted to show the officials what art dolls really are and how they differ from the other entries they've mixed into our category.

So first up, we'll show new things in this post. In the next post, you'll see other dolls we brought as examples.

It's been too long and now I'm not remembering all the doll creators here. I'll mention the ones I do know and fill in later.

Carlyn never rests! She always has multiple creations in the works.

These next two...not sure who made them.

Laurie, our club president (we always say "President for Life") did a fantastic job on this next one...

One of the Linda Misa workshop dolls.

I'm not sure, but this looks like a Lisa work...

 Pam's gorgeous work.

 Shauna's work in progress.

This was a "pass-around" project some artists in Arkansas did. We have a group of ladies in the club who drive over to Tulsa almost every month and for most workshops. We love our Arkansas Ladies!

June Show & Tell

 We're going to start off with pictures of this month's door prize, made by Carlyn. He's utterly charming and everybody wished they had won!

Then we have several variations of the doll Linda Misa taught in the recent workshop.

By Doreen:

By Kathy:

By Janice:

By Lisa:

A cute wooden ornament Lisa made using her husband's picture.

Connie's "Shelf Sleeper" made from a Barbara Schoenoff pattern.

And darn it, we'll end our post with Kathy's creation, affectionately known in doll circles as a "Da##it Doll."

Happy Creating, Everyone!
