Way back in the summer my friend Kath aka LazyKay sent me a dolls chair to alter. We decided to do a challenge, I was to make something for her with mine and she was to make me something with hers.
I wanted to make some sort of shrine, but it ended up going way beyond that!!!
This is what I came up with. The chair has been painted in gold dabber. I covered a piece of balsar wood with black and white checks. My mate Claire kindly stamped out some shrine images for me and I made them bigger on the photocopier. I mounted them onto mountboard, coloured them and then cut them out. Kath had previously sent me the clay moulds, so I painted them gold too and added them to 2 of the wall panels. The panels are held up with lollie pop sticks which have been wedged into the wooden base. I was now thinking that it sort of looked like a palace.
And no palace is fit without a queen. Queenie is made from a spoon, bent round to sit on the chair, although I did have to raise her off the seat slightly so her arms would fit!!! The dress is simply layed pieces of paper with a doylie for her neckline. A clay mould for the face, wool for the hair and a metal crown.
Kath and I were hoping to meet as I wanted to give it to her in person, but it just never happened, so I ended up posting it and I'm happy to report it all arrived safely and in tact!!!
