DaDa?

Sometime ago I read Linda and Opie O'Brian's book, Who's Your DaDa, Redefining The Doll Through Mixed Media, and was immediately taken with the possibilities. Since then I have created three of my own "dada" dolls.Their images will soon be posted not only in this blog but also in my Etsy shop. What is pictured here is the beginning of my fourth doll. I thought it fun to post this work in progress.  While it looks like the parts of two dolls...it really is going to be one...a push-me-pull-me theme. Two bodies blanks, two head blanks, two sets of wheels, two hinges...which will soon become one! Check in for future postings as I put my "Push-me-Pull-me" doll together. This should be interesting!

My favorite is still the metal sunshine doll you made. Maybe because it reminds me of one of my own dolls...
