It's WOYW? Wednesday and Prudence Is Finished!


Today is Wednesday, and that means it's time for "What's On Your Workdesk?" That's the day of the week that we all go to the Stamping Ground blog at to share what project(s) we are working on and we also get to visit many other bloggers to see what they have on their workdesks. I have finally finished my Prudence doll and she is very happy!

Those of you who follow my blog know that I have been working on a Pilgrim doll called Prudence in a class by Mo Manning (the doll based on one of Mo's wonderful digital images) for quite some time now and was waiting for the lesson on her clothes and hair to finish her. Poor Prudence had been waiting on the shelf for far too long so I decided to go ahead and complete the doll. Prudence is sculpted from PaperClay - which is an air drying clay - and although the clothing was to be made from cloth I decided to sculpt it all in the PaperClay.

I have used this medium in the past to sculpt dolls but had not used it for a long time, and most of these dolls also had cloth clothing, so it was going to be interesting to see how creating the clothing in the PaperClay would turn out. It was fun to take it in stages, adding the clothing layers as the previous one dried and then painting the pieces after they were completed. In the class Prudence originally was holding an apple behind her back, but in the digital image of Prudence she is shown carrying a basket behind her so I also changed that to her carrying lots of apples in a basket.

Prudence is happy, I am happy and I do hope you enjoy seeing the finished doll.

"I'm so happy!"

Thank you for visiting my blog today! After many days of weather in the high 50's and sunshine every day so we felt like Spring was here - we had 6 inched of snow! It is to be back in the higher temperatures again by this weekend and with rain in the forecast the snow should all be gone again. I have to say that going out to clean off  my car that morning and shovel a path next to it was very depressing - but I should be used to it. It is Wisconsin!

Wishing you a good day wherever you are and lots of sunshine. Be sure to take some time today to go to the Stamping Ground blog at to share what you are up to this week and visit some bloggers for inspiration and fun!

Your craft area is pretty! What an inspiration. And Prudence is absolutely adorable, what fun. I love to play with dolls and dollhouses too. But actually creating a doll is amazing. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #46

Gosh Barbara she looks adorable in her paper clay clothes. Seems so fitting (no pun intended) that her clothes were made the same as her. I love the total
look which is now complete. Mo will be so proud of your achievement. Hugs Mrs A.
