I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

Peace, Serenity, and Composure - My New Mixed Media Victorian Collage and Paper-clay Art Dolls



Three of the mixed media Victorian collage and paper-clay art dolls I made recently were a trio of wood dolls - two with paper-clay faces and one with a paper face. They're a trio of sisters that I named Peace, Serenity, and Composure.


Peace - 2" x 3 1/2" x 9" Handmade Mixed Media Victorian Collage Art Doll With Paper-clay Face

Peace, Serenity, and Composure are a trio of sisters who do everything together. Where there's Peace you'll find Serenity and Composure. Where there's Serenity you'll find Peace and Composure. And, where there's Composure you'll find Peace and Serenity.



Peace is a 2" x 3 1/2" x 9" mixed media Victorian wood doll with a painted paper-clay face with lilac blushed eyelids, rosy cheeks, pink painted finger nails, sponge painted wood body, paper collage and embellished outfit. Her sides and back are sponge painted and her outfit is an embellished paper collage adorned with lace trim and ribbon trim. A gathered lace and ribbon over-skirt serves as a bustle for her outfit. An embroidered shawl is wrapped around her shoulders and fastened with a pearl beaded button. Her light gray thick alpaca yarn hair from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is wrapped in a bun and adorned with a dressy silver braid. Lilac ribbon trim is wrapped around her sponge painted wooden base.
