Yellow Puzzle piece dolls.
I am insane! Yes, I admit it here. I've got so many other things to work on, but I just can't help myself with making these adorable puzzle piece dolls. We have a challenge on BAD which is not suppose to start until April 1st, but here I am already with three under my belt. My challenge was to use yellow. No problem...a trip to Byzantium and there you go. Yellow taking over my life! But, this has been another challenge for me too.
I met Nicolle Campanella on another Yahoo Group & she was looking for entries for a new book she was doing called Flatwork. I inquired, but since a lot of my work is not flat, I didn't think she'd be interested in my work. Well, she was & she wants to add a couple of my dolls to her book. So I got to looking at the other examples of work that are going to be in her new book,and thought I needed to work on trying to make my bead embroidery flat or traditional. I was taught this by Rena Denison at Bzyantium, but never really got much into now. Well, now I'm hooked. Thank you Nicolle for making me rethink my beading and coming up with some fun projects. Now, I just can't help myself. I promised the gals on bad that I'm finished with doing yellow, but I still have 15 more puzzle pieces! I'm serious...I can't help myself.
