The one about Lynne Perrella


I chose the letter L in Leticia's Alphabetica journal because I am inspired by Lynne Perrella. This doll was harrrrrrrd!! But then I have to remember I am not Lynne Perrella!
I bow to her talent.
I put the close-up shots of the doll HERE.

On Lynne's website she has a section of found object assemblages she calls Bundles. She says:

I am always searching for the possibilities that reside in
discarded, forgotten things. Thrown-away photos, a ball of string, a bale of
rusted wire, old dusty cardboard. I believe such things provide the hinges for
the Universe. Their unguarded simplicity speaks to me. These things have been
passed through many hands, and seem to ask to be recognized, once and for all.

I feel the same way about ordinary things. Gimme the junk anyday.

She's beautiful, Marilyn! And she looks so dimensional (which is a good thing for a paper doll - not so good for me! LOL!) Thanks you so much for the effort you put into it. I love that your inspiration for my Lynne Perrella inspired book was Lynne Perrella herself! I can hardly wait to see it in person. Hugs! Leticia

You are AMAZING. I keep coming back to your blog and staring at her with my jaws agape. You are such an inspiration, and I agree with previous posters...you ABSOLUTELY give LP a run for her money, in your own style!
