BFAC Project

Okay, I finally got those pictures I promised.  Beading For A Cure puts together a kit each year, which you purchase, then you make a project that they will auction off the following Spring. This is my second year participating and I really enjoy it.  I love the colors in the kit this year - purples and bronzes.  You are allowed to add one type of bead/color.  I chose a blue because blue is a healing color.  I made my very first doll form for this project that I am calling Healing Dance Spirit Doll.  I am using a polymer clay face that I have been holding onto for a couple of years now waiting  for the right project.  I got it off of Ebay, but I cannot remember who made it.  Sorry about that.
Here is the kit
 These are the beads I added
Here is the face I used.  I love this face, it says Spirit to me
 I did one of the Reiki healing symbols called Cho Ku Rei in the blue to add healing energy.
I also added green Jade cabachons to the front and back.
 I am doing blue spirals all over the doll.
Here are full frontal and back views of the doll.  Remember, this is my very first hand sewn doll I have ever made from drawing the pattern to sewing and stuffing myself.

So that is the start of my project.  I will keep you updated on its progress.

Arts and Crafts and new blog

I have decided that from here on out, this blog will be solely for my Arts and Crafts happenings.  I have started a new blog called Simple Living by Cat   for everything else going on in my life.  Tomorrow, I will be posting here about my BFAC beaded doll that I am doing.  Need to get some pictures first.
