Revisions To My Lucy, Lacy, and Lilly - A Beautiful Trio of Mixed Media Victorian Shelf Sitters



Lucy, Lacy, and Lilly are a trio of sisters who are as different as they are beautiful. Lucy is a delicate flower who has an over abundance of compassion.  Lacy, on the other hand, is whimsical and flirtatious while Lilly is a deep thinker who cares about everyone and everything.

They are mixed media Victorian collage and paper-clay art dolls that I made back in September of 2014.

I was never happy with the way their faces looked (as shown in the picture below) because I always thought they were too big.  I didn't like how they looked with their hair as I always thought they weren't proportioned correctly.  So, I decided to change them and add bonnets to the top of their heads for better overall proportions with the shelf sitter parts of their bodies.


The one on the left in the picture above is Lucy.  Here's how she used to look:





Here's how she looks now:


Lucy - 4 1/2" x 6" x 3/4" Handmade Mixed Media Victorian Collage Shelf Sitter Art Doll

Lucy is a 4 1/2" x 6" x 3/4" mixed media Victorian shelf sitter wood doll with a paper face, sponge painted wood body, paper collage and embellished outfit, and fabric gathered and covered bamboo bonnet with paper floral embellishments. Her sides and back are sponge painted and her outfit is an embellished paper collage dress with a two tier cape with raised orange dots. Orange lace trim is wrapped around her neck and she has a beautiful orange and cream paper flower under her neck.

Her beautiful brown thick alpaca yarn hair from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is wrapped in a bun and adorned with a delicate white flower and leaf ribbon braid. A white flower and butterfly add charm to her collage outfit.

The doll in the center of the 2nd picture at the start of this post is Lacy.  Here's how she used to look:

She has blue lace trim wrapped around her neck and a blue silk ribbon floral embellishment under her chin.  Her beautiful paper bonnet sits atop her head and is adorned with a multi layered silk trim adorned with paper floral embellishments.

I hop you like the changes I made to Lucy, Lacy, and Lilly.
