Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You can see some of my work including painting at my picturetrail site: www.picturetrail.com/elenahg Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks again, Helen

A few new dolls

The doll below was made from Lotus Velle free pattern that she post on ClothDollMaking yahoo group. I like this pattern very much. Easy to put together and the fellow is the charmer. At least in my eyes :)



















This little Dragon was created from Jennifer Carson pattern "The Maned Bookwyrm". This is cloth dragon with some needlefelting (mane, and chest or stomach). But if you are not into needlefelting, you still can have a wonderful dragon. I couldn't resist his charms and created one for my son. Another dragon is at work as I have to make one for another son as well :)
And no, he is not picking his nose...



















I also was playing around and created a little Annie - The Ballerina. Her body and stocks are painted, the face - embroidered and she just making me smile with her silliness :) Hope she will bring smile to you as well.
Hugs,
Helen
