I'm supposed to be doing about a million other things, but there they were...just sitting there minding their own thoughts....two fabric heads. More like two fabric lumps actually. Just lying there....I can't be totally heartless...they had no eyes with which to see the world, no mouths to comment with....no...well you get the idea.

I thought I would just do one, but that would have been downright cruel. One lump
transformed into a head....the other left in it's lumply state!

Oh the inhumanity!

So I get the pencils out...both the watercolor and regular colored pencils....maybe the pastels too! Can never have too many supplies out. Hmmm...they look like they need a bit more stuffing. Where did I put that bag of stuffing? Oh look there some yarn I had been looking for last week! Maybe I should work on my knitting...

Then of course, they needed their pictures taken...several shots to insure that I get their best side. Maybe while I'm at it I should take pictures of the flowers in the yard....the azaleas are so lovely right now.

I'm not getting a lot done today for some reason....

Beautiful faces! What you are describing isn't procrastination .. it's creative distraction disorder. CDD for short.

Gaia said...

How wonderful!! Wish my procrastination would bring similar results, but I'm afraid I'll just end up with a humongous pile of laundry! LOL

Wonderful job, Angela! Can't wait to see them finished! :D

Hmm, I like what Judi said, "Creative Distraction Disorder". I'll have to remember that... hrumph, ah, hm, I was doing something just now... OH, yeah, POSTING a COMMENT on your blog! heehee

Your faces and pappilon are incredible. I run out of decriptive words for your pieces. You can only say WONDERFUL so many times before the word loses its meaning. lol

Do you have a room in your house for displaying all of your beautiful art dolls? Or are they all traveling somewhere? I can imagine the colorful clutter of pencils, fabrics and paints in your studio. "Comforting Clutter" is what I call it. Cozy as a fleece blanket. Now I am rambling. :) Just stopped in to say "hi". ((Hug)).

Looks like you got some lovely work done to me! I have to admit to have an excessive case of CDD myself...but it's Spring so we have a very good excuse!

Yvette said...

Your heads are beautiful!
As are your other dolls.

And the darling teddy! (I gotta thing for teddy's LOL)

Angela, it never ceases to amaze me that you can create so much dimension on a flat piece of fabric. Just stunning.

Love & hugs -- Rita

My 'procrastination' should produce such lovely results! Angela, these are beautiful faces! And see, NOW you have two sweet lil' faces lying there waiting until the NEXT time you feel an attack of CDD when you can add BODIES! TA-DA!
