Old memories leading the way to new creations!

One of my fondest childhood memories was spending time with my mother while watching one of her favorite Horror Movies (by today's standards, they would be more like comedies than considered to be scarey)... She loved them all; Dracula, Werewolf, Mummy, Invisible Man and of course, Frankenstein!! As we watched Dr. Frankenstein working in his laboratory, carefully assembling various bits & pieces of body parts for his creation, we sat on the edge of our seats waiting to see if he would really come to life and of course we weren't disappointed... the Monster was born!! He may not have been handsome or very popular in the village but he became a movie star with many sequels to his credits!! This was my first exposure to the Art of Assemblage and creating something from miscellaneous supplies on hand!

This flashback into my past sets the groundwork for today's Show & Tell... I recently joined a swap on AFA called Domino Dolls... the challenge here is to create dolls using Domino game pieces for their bodies and any other supplies needed to bring them to life! Just call me Dr. Janinastein... Below are photos of my creations (I won't call them Monsters... I may be bias, but I think they are too darn cute!) All of my dolls have a one-of-a-kind sculpted porcelain face, giving each one a unique personality!!

Brrrrrr - Bundle Up!!
