Challenge #11 3-D Figure (jointed, pattern, stuffed, simple/complicated, on stand, wall display, sitting, painted, glued, stitched, very open options, etc…)
Theme – Gods & Goddesses (human, animal, cultural myth, invented, etc…)
Required Material– Fibers (ribbon, yarn, string, lace, floss, cord, etc…)
Here is my Goddess of Flight
~Mini Stretched Canvas and Mini Easel
~Dragonfly Chipboard Shapes
~Art Doll Metal Face
~Paints and Gel Medium
I painted the canvas and added some gauze to the paint and Gel medium while still wet. I painted the Chipboard shapes. I bundled the fibers and tied them together at one end with wire. Then I hot glued the fibers between the two chipboard shapes. I bundled a heap more fibers and hot glued them to the back of the metal face ( burning my fingers in the process) then I glued the head to the body, and adhered it to the mini canvas. I positioned the beads on to represent her earing's and to cover the holes in her face. The chipboard letters were placed on last. The canvas is stuck to the easel, so it is one piece and help to counteract the weight, so it doesn't constantly fall off the easel.

"The hardest part of this piece was making sure she stayed together and that's where the pins came in. I glued her up all around the edges because the sticky part of the canvas wasn't enough to hold it all with the batting. Once glued I pinned her up like a pattern would be and let it dry for quite some time. This piece was constantly needing to be reinforced (PATIENCE)!! "

This is my interpretation of Persephone’s return from the Underworld, which, according to Greek mythology, brings the start of spring. To read about the Greek mythology regarding Persephone, check out this link.
I painted a paper mache torso for the base of this project, and created a dress out of lace and covered with flowers, pearl stickers, and fiber “vines”. To create a platform for the figure, I covered a box with green mulberry paper and fibers. I also added a cardboard roll covered with fabric for the figure to sit on, to give more height. The back of the dress is made with a doily that is sprayed with glimmer mist, and another piece of mulberry paper.

with......"Medusa in all her glory"
I did a bit of reading on Medusa in order to brush up on my mythology . I was always fascinated by her in my school days and was interested to find that her story left me feeling very sad.
We always see her depicted as a monster, lolling tongue, turning anyone who dares look at her into stone. In fact it is said that she was the most beautiful of three gorgon sisters, the only one with mortal attributes. She was known for her great beauty, especially her gorgeous hair, until Athena turned it into a head full of snakes.
This doll is meant to show Medusa in a private moment, alone, broken and mourning her brutally lost virginity and beauty. Gorgons are said to be from the sea so I tried to keep her in her element. Thanks for the great challenge!
