Art for Charity...... Think Pink!!


I met a cool gal through an art blog (Girl Gone Thread Wild!!) who placed a call to artists for donations for 2x2 art squares to decorate an art doll for charity. Her mission is as follows:

"the pink artist"is a community of artists joining togetherto create one joint art doll to benefit the
When the doll is complete, it will be mailed in to Art Doll Quarterly™before finally being auctioned off on eBay at a later date. ALL PROCEEDS WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT CHARITY."
These are the 2 x 2 art squares I have made for this wonderful cause. Their bases are made from hand made soy silk fabric (pink/orange) Lumiere painted fabric (blue), heat blasted tyvek and foil (pink), hand painted and then foiled and stamped silk dupioni (purple) which were all finally embellished with glass beads and free motion embroidered with metallic and vereigated threads. It is an honor to be a part of something so worthwhile with such wonderful artists. Thanks Monica -- for putting this together and for the invitation to join in!

These are wondeful -- so much in such a small space. I will have to travel over to girl gone thread wild in some of my free time, LOL, but probably not now since the girls are making pancakes. Time to check the kitchen.
