Handmade Dolls !

I have recently found some VERY special things about handmade dolls on-line and I just had to share this.
These ladies are truly amazing, their craftmanship is out of this world......
and I would love to try and make my own dolls now too.
Please check out the links, they are so worth it !
This is just one of many dolls made by Elsa Mora
and here is a little video of Sarah Faber making Tim Burtonesque kinda dolls

Coptic Binding

I wanted to try out this coptic bookbinding for myself, and this is the result.
I used watercolour paper and covered the cover with textured paint.
I wanted to make it look a bit old, vintage.
I will still decorate the front and show it again.
The process is really enjoyable and will certainly make more journals/books in the future.
