Violet Pansee is a mixed media doll. She is a fabric, stuffed with polyester fill and then painted with acrylics. Her headdress is feathers paper leaves and the topper is a pansy handmade from muslin and painted with acrylics. Violet loves to garden and has a canvas heart to show it painted with acrylics and adorned with a button and a silver bee just landing. She has beads for hands and to stand her up I wrapped the base with beautiful yarn made from old saris (very colourful) and stuffed in a clay pot. The pot has a frog stamped and embossed. She has a sunflower companion, a painted silk flower with an added brass face and has the same yarn and is also in a clay pot. She shows her love by growing another heart (made of canvas as well) out of a brass hand also in a clay pot.
Her name is French and pronounced Vee-o-lay Pan-say and she lives in the sunshine on my dinningroom table. 🙂
