2011 Art Dolls Only Traveling Doll Project Begins....

I decided to sign up to participate in this year's Art Dolls Only Traveling Doll Project.  I wanted to participate last year but at sign up time, I believed we were moving across the country during the project so I backed out only to stay put in Florida.  Sigh....  That's okay though because I'm participating this year.

So what is the traveling doll project you ask?  Well, teams of 3 or 6 ADO members are assigned and each of us makes a doll base.  We then send that doll on to 2 or 5 other team members who who add embellishments to our dolls.  At the end of the project, a finished doll will be returned to us. 

For more information about this project or the doll artists participating this year, please head over to the blog to read more.  You can also follow the blog and follow along with the process of everyone's dolls!

We also send a journal along with our doll and each member who receives your doll reads what everyone else has written in it before them and then adds to it while they have our doll.

Here's my doll base (Victoria) and her journal:

She is all boxed up and ready to head out tomorrow to OK to visit Shauna.  I can't wait to see how she transforms over the next 6 months!

Stay tuned.....

I'm doing the TDP, too--first time. Nervous, excited, and completely psyched about it. Love your little dolls, and can't wait to see her progress!

Oh how exciting! I lurked around watching last years groups and enjoyed seeing their travels and how the dolls turned out. ;0)

Collective creative joint programes such as this are always fun. Having no control over the 'final' concept of something you started is scary fun lol.
