The Art Doll Coolaberration 2010 Project
is coming to an end.
I received my finished doll after she traveled
throughout the U.S. and Canada for the last 8 months or so.
To see how Raisa began, click
And this is Raisa now!
Raisa transformed into a flapper from the 1920's.
She has so many interesting features now,
from interchangeable legs, metal arms and hands,
to a mini scrapbook and letters from Johnny,
to two different collars, a flapper necklace,
bead work, a great pretty face,
and much more.
Her petit point box body opens to reveal even more
She even has a heart!
Here is all her goodies that she arrived home with.
Even the envelop for her interchangeable legs is really cool.
The mini quilt below was a nice addition,
especially since I am so into quilts.
There is a story behind the quilt,
and it connects Raisa to her past.
Her journal tells her story and is full from cover to cover.
of meeting and falling in love with Johnny,
and then of her heartbreak.
In the journal is flapper history, and much more.
To read and see more details of Raisa's travels
as each artist worked on her,
You can also see all the other dolls in the project,
and see how they evolved from artist to artist.
This was one cool project,
thanks to Gail who ran the whole thing.
Hope you visit each of the artists blogs/websites.
You will find a link to each of them on the coolab site.
Thanks goes out to all of them for the hard work
they did on Raisa.
Thanks Gail, Mary Anne, Arlee, Robyn, Talitha and Amy.
I just love her!
Savor the Day!
