I dressed the second doll using a flag from a "prayer" flag I made several years ago and hung outside. The flags weathered nicely but the string connecting them disintegrated. I will hang her outside somewhere as a guardian spirit.
The faces are earthenware made by Lyn Belisle and ordered from her Etsy shop Earthshards. At first I thought they might be too big for the dolls. They look like masks. But now I have gotten used to the look.
Joanne Powell Colbert has a free ebook on spirit dolls. www.gainansoul.com. She "invented" the idea. I also read about them on Lyn Belisle's website Lyn Belisle.com however the ebook link seems to be gone now.
This was very fun to do. Twigs and scraps. Free stuff. I love it. My spirit had been downcast. Now it's happy. May the spirit be with you. Love, Suki
