The little doll I've used, is actually a UTEE cast, made in a silicone mould of one of my Ideaology Fractured Dolls. It was good to get my Melt Pot out, as I haven't used it nearly enough! I used a piece of nylon curtain tape and gathered ribbon to make her skirt. The wings are from Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts, covered with Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter.
I mounted the doll onto a little block of wood which I treated in the same way as the tin. The outside of the tin is covered around the sides, with Tissue Tape, and I've used an Ideaology Ring Fastener on top as a hanger. These are so cute.
I've left the back untreated to remind myself that it's a sardine tin! I couldn't resist adding the quote as it just popped into my head whilst I was working on her. I just love that scene in the movie! No points for guessing what it is. let me know, if you are one of the few that doesn't know and I'll let you into the secret!
