Art: Jiving Jenny Ripped by Artist Tina Marie Ferguson
This doll is ripped from Andrea Dodwell’s JIVING JENNY MOUSE. I wanted to make a doll for this show and Jenny Mouse looked like she was trying to dance her way off the canvas. So, I helped her along. The only limitation I placed on myself for this project was NOT to buy any new supplies. (Not too hard since I own a lot of stuff for making other stuff, LOL) This girl started out as a muslin doll blank. I cut off the regular circular head and added a longer, more angular one. Then I primed, sanded, painted, and sanded the entire doll. Then I painted some more to touch up and add detail. I cut her skirt from cotton fabric that is adhered to her torso just under the arms. It has rick rack and lace accents. She also has a hair bow from the same fabric. Finally I painted the Klimt like circles and dots on her dress. This little doll was time consuming but really fun to make.
