How to make a princess!!

Take one vintage doll head, some wood and a creative drawing. Take a piece of copper and some hearts buttons and wala!! A princess!!
She was such fun to work on and all of the elements just came together.
I attached a collage to a piece of 1/4 plywood and cut the plywood into triangular shapes. I inserted a wood block into the base of the doll head so that I could drill some holes into it. I took four sections of the plywood that I cut and laid it on the neck piece that I had installed. Then I attached the plywood with dowels and glue. This made the base of the doll.
I took rectangular pieces of copper mesh and molded it to appear like cloth over the drawing. I held these pieces in place with heart buttons.
An vintage rhinestone collar made up her head piece and rhinestone trim made up her bracelets. '
She has been entered into the Queen of ZNE contest being held by the Art Dollz group on ZNE.
What fun!!
You all must visit the ZNE network ( Fun place to visit and filled with exciting artists from all over the world.
