Meet Sister Agnes New work!

Meet Steampunk Soul Sister Agnes. She doesn't understand why the inky black stuff keeps spilling out of her mouth, then again, nothing has been the same since the Evil Soul Sucker came to Creativity.
Sister Agnes is 9 1/2" tall x 4" x 3" deep. She has vintage watch parts for her right eye, and another vintage piece under her left. There is also a vintage watch part on her chest, with a vintage rosary piece and watch gear. At her waist hangs vintage rosary beads and a beautiful vintage cross. She is hand sculpted over an armature (no molds ever) out of polymer clay. Her left arm is some kind of metal found object with a piece of a wooden ruler. I hand painted her in layers with oil paints.
Hope everyone is doing well. I know I promised to be a better blogger, but I've been super busy. STJ Soiree went very well for me, even though I couldn't be there in person. Five of my pieces will be in Art Doll Quarterly in the Winter issue, which hits the stands on November 1 :o) I've seen the sneak peek and it looks fabulous! The dolls are on a red background, now why didn't I ever think of that? I'm also working on some pieces for a gallery :o) So lots going on, I promise I haven't been slacking! The nun however is available in my etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/listing/82730823/steampunk-souls-mixed-media-art-doll
Back to work I go...more later on the magazine and gallery...xo Michele

Great Display idea!

I wanted to share with everyone how a wonderful collector of the Steampunk Souls is displaying their art! She found the shelf at Home Goods and then added the scrapbook paper to the back of the shelves! Making it a perfect doll house :o) And she's a doll herself!
How cute is she?!! You can find her blog here: http://glamcrab.blogspot.com/2011/09/new-shelf-and-stripes.html

Donnie-New Work

Meet Donnie, all I could think of while I was sculpting him was Donnie Darko for some reason lol, he doesn't even look like a big rabbit! So Donnie was the name that stuck. He's 7 1/2" tall. He has vintage watch parts on his forehead and under his eye. A vintage tag at the top of his zipper, and some kind of metal hatchet that I'm guessing was once a kids toy? Only half of it was there when I found it. Oh he also has vintage watch parts for his little ears? horns?

Hope everyone is having a good start to their weekend! Spooky Time Soiree is tomorrow!! I really wish I could be there in person. Sigh. Maybe next year! But I do have 4 pieces of artwork there :o) xo Michele

Millie The Nurse-New Work

Meet Millie, she doesn't know why the Evil Soul Sucker wanted to do a heart transplant on her, her old heart was just fine. Since the new black one, Millie doesn't have nice thoughts. She's 10 1/4" tall. Lots of vintage pieces on her including a several watch pieces, a rhinestone button and a black bird scatter pin. Her arm is some kind of found thing-a-ma-bob I have no idea what it really is. Hope everyone is having a good weekend! xo Michele
