EcoArt:E.T. Paper Doll   32 mon  
More Eco Art utilizing dried flowers
When I was a kid, I loved cutting out paper dolls and their clothes. I was never interested in playing with them, I just liked to be creative and soon drew and cut out my own paper clothes for them. This kind of activity later included designing and sewing my own clothes for Barbie dolls. I made clothes for them until I was 14, long past the time most kids put the dolls away. This paper doll started out as a photo in the Sunday April 28 2019 Los Angeles Times from the fashion section.** I thought the model’s head mask so interesting that I cut out the photo. Since it was print ...   read more

EcoArt:Spring Flowers   3 y  
Spring Flowers from around my neighborhood
Eco Art by mayah(c)2019 ”Spring Flowers” 9” x 13” This was a rather challenging art piece to make.

After two failed attempts at using embroidery floss to tie the pieces together (the floss was not sturdy enough to keep the cross threads from collapsing), the decision was made to use jute twine instead. Each piece of coconut husk was brittle, so I started out by gluing Rhimax ( ...   read more
