Mr. Frog

Most of you know by now that I love joining swaps.  Well, I recently did an art doll swap, and this is what I came up with.  Originally I had been toying with the idea of sculpting a doll, but I really love crochet so much, that I just couldn't resist making a fancy amigurumi.  I call him "fancy", because I used more than just yarn, and more than just crochet to create him.  

He has sculpted oven-bake clay hands, a cross stitched design on his torso, and a little ribbon ruffle around his neck.  He also has jointed shoulders and hips which makes him somewhat poseable!  It was my first time doing all of these techniques, and I have to admit that I really had fun making him! 

Can you tell what the design is?  It's supposed to be a rose, and I really hope it reads as one.  It is hard doing giant cross stitch!
I think it is safe to say that he is a "mixed-media" doll.  I will definitely be trying all of these techniques again!  In fact, I'm currently working on another top secret doll for another swap. Stay tuned!

Thanks again for visiting!
