This project is a collaboration of artists, all working individually on a group doll.
Team 'Chic Chicks' of Europe
This year there is: a European team,
a Canadian team, an Australian team,
and six American teams for a total of 9 teams.
All teams dolls can be viewed here:
Each doll will take a journey...starting and ending in the same place with a whole new look and story.
A journal will travel with each doll that will tell the story from the start,
middle, and the end of the dolls adventure.
Felicity Haversham (above) By Jasmoon Butterfly
of papillon bleu uk by Patricia (below)
My first doll from Patricia arrived with no limbs,
so I had to help make her mobile, in more ways than one :0)
The pair soon became great friends :0)
Apeironia's eyes widened as she entered the gates of the Rookery.
'What a beautiful, quiet distraction from the world'
There were mini waterfalls, tall trees, flowers releasing
sweet aromas...and a wishing well!
'Lets make a wish Apeironia'
Jasmoon handed Apeironia a coin,
both closed their eyes and gently tossed the coins into the well.
Upon making the wish, Apeironia felt herself lifting ever so lightly from the ground.
She opened her eyes, and saw Jasmoon smile,
'Take care Apeironia, they will take time to get use to.'
Apeironia felt a slight flutter as
she giggled upon realising her wish had come true immediately...
her dream of wings!
'OOoo Jasmoon how am I to travel to my
Shall I fly?'
'I think perhaps we can find a cage, only as a place for you to protect your wings,
I think you may need some skill to navigate on a journey so far'
'What a wonderful idea, I can pick up some things to decorate it, maybe make create a mobile home ...
add some things to remind me of my travels?'
'Sounds great, lets collect a few bits for you to take with you'
Apeironia & Jasmoon enjoyed the rest of day at the Rookery,
holding hands so that Apeironia
did not flutter about too much.
How quickly time passed,
Apeironia climbed into the cage that Jasmoon got for her,
'I will miss you dearly my friend,
please say hi to Felicity when she returns .
Thank you for enabling my mobility & for showing me the well of wishes....
I am almost speechless, take care my friend,
please remember to write'
Jasmoon smiled, 'Of course I will,
your magic will always hold a special place in my heart my friend'
Both waved eachother goodbye...
'I wonder what awaits me on my new travel ?'
It was extremely enjoyable and a pleasure to work on Patricia's doll,
Paper clay was used for limbs/wire.
I will follow her progress eagerly :0)
Love & light
