Finally...

My Christmas Crow...

Let me introduce you to " Chris ", the Christmas Crow, who was busy doing some last minute shopping for the Mrs., when the snow began to fall," I think I'll take the long way home he thought to himself, I love Christmas,it's such a magical season! " he said with a smile and spring in his step...and he began to make his way thru the soft shimmering ground."
This dandy fellow wanted to say hello before he was on his merry way, I made him for another Christmas swap and am quite pleased with how he came out! He is made of muslin, his beak is clay over cloth and his legs are tape covered wires. He is a mixed media art doll, made from my own original design. I've used czech glass beads for his eyes and large seed beads as buttons at his vest, on his jacket back tab, for his shoulder joints and on his spatz.Embellished with mica snow,red berries, decorative buttons and fabric ribbons, he carries a handmade gift bag and tag, with tissues, bakers twine make the handles.Top hat and clothes were also handmade by me, I make my own patterns for my dolls
Enjoy!
Blessings,Flora

I LOVE this, crows have a pretty bad press, we need more chaps like this!
A really great bit of modelling.
