Love doll for mmartfriends swap



Finished up the "Chakra Love Doll" for Lori A, my swap partner on mmartfriends.  The doll has bits and baubles to represent the 7 chakras:  white, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red.  The body is a collage of fabric paper, stitch, quotes, sequins, and paper ephemera, inspired by Kelli Perkins' Stitch Alchemy.  Thanks, Kelli, for being a generous participant and co-host in the study of your book!

Thank you for the kind compliments, Kristi and Lori. Lori, I was inspired by the voodoo dolls in Kelli Perkins book, Stitch Alchemy. It's basically an embellished paperdoll made from fabric paper, or stitch paper, as Kelli calls it.
