Your Suggestions Please: Affirmation Doll

I’m planning to make a supportive, comforting doll using fabric design techniques. My plan is that the design of the doll is made of positive affirmations and statements. The doll might be a companion to help during a really tough period in someone’s life.

I’ve been wondering what words and statement my followers would find most comforting to use when I make the doll.

Please take a moment to pop a suggestion in the comments for this post.

Please feel free to forward this post to someone you know who this idea might resonate with.

These images are my work that has led to this idea.

My Week on Instagram

As I don’t post everything on my blog here’s the latest from my Instagram feed. I like the instantaneousness of Instagram and the global reach. Lovely to think of someone  thousands of miles away viewing my artworks.

I announced that I will be speaking and exhibiting at an International Women’s Day Event on 8th March, and created this artwork for the event marketing.

I continue to develop my learning of developing repeating patterns, this time using a watercolour and metallic mandala, based on techniques learned whilst studying with Jessica Swift’s Pattern Camp.

I like to take a peek at photos I took a year ago and saw this painted lady. I added a face and replaced the background to make a vibrant image with the mantra – Stride On – You’ve Got This. A positive nudge for anyone who may be struggling with January Blues.

I shared the video of the creation of my latest commissioned artwork for a Manchester United Football Club fan.

I played with some fabrics that I had screen and collograph printed to create a moulage on a mannequin. And realised that fashion may be my guilty pleasure.
