Harper the Traveler



As some of you may know I'm involved in a collaborative project called the Traveling Doll Project. I did this last year and it was so much fun I decided to do it again. If ever as an artist you have the opportunity and most importantly time:) to do a collaborative project I would highly suggest you do so. I have learned so much about doll making and technique by being involved in these projects.
So this is Harper, my second doll that I've work on in the project. The first Delta Dawn, you can view here


Harper was first created by Nicole of MealyMonster who lives in Buffalo New York.





Nicole sent lil naked and pale Harper off to Cindy Sowers from Vermont and she got some make-up, hair, a fancy hat and a groovy chair.



I've given Harper a bit of a new hair do and fancy lil dress. I will be sending her off to Susie McMahon in Australia for her last leg of her travels.

I so love how each artist is inspired differently by each doll they receive and the progress and changes are so unexpected. I look forward to seeing what happens to Harper next.
