American Sign Language Raggedy Ann is a one of a kind doll and was handmade using best quality fabrics. She was made of muslin fabric and has a round head. Raggedy Ann was coffee stained and baked to give her a good ole prim look. The pictures don’t do it justice. She has painted facial features and painted stockings and shoes. She has individual wired fingers with painted fingernails too! One arm is bent slightly so that she can make a few of her signs. Her head is filled with red fun yarn that was stitched to her head one strand at a time. Raggedy Ann wears a dress with tan background and small flowers for the print. She has now moved to WA. :o)

This was an old shudder door which I removed the inside from and added a ¼ inch plywood. The textured background was painted in acrylics with various colors and designs. I then painted a sweet folk art angel named "Hope." She wears a ¼ inch thick polymer clay dress which has a small metal embellishment that says "Hope". The dress has lots of texture and embellishments, sprinkled lightly with glitter. The frame was painted barn red and crackled. The whole piece measures 26 x 9 x ¾ inch thick. Lots of detail to this One of a Kind Mixed Media Art. Will now be hanging in CA.
