If you are not familiar with KC Willis go here. You will see she usually uses western and native American images in her beautiful works. Her camp has been fun learning her tricks to layering fabrics and distressing. However, if you know me I like to color outside the lines. I really wanted to add hardware to bring in even more texture. And of course add a doll.
It Takes Time to See
In this first piece I added a doll. I stayed away from making her to creepy. Her body has been coffee dyed. Cinnamon was sprinkled on while she was still wet. She smells good. I used a canvas board to mount everything on. This makes the piece stronger to hold the weight of the doll and tin. The pocket watch had been my grandfather's and it still works.
Also mounted on a canvas board. I used the rust technique on the board. The leafs on the tree represent a family member.
The image is a post card I picked up in Sedona. The picture cracks me up. I'm guessing they were having a watermelon eating contest. If only these old pictures could talk.
