Introducing Jeanne

Almost finished with this doll made of recycled items, before finishing her hair, I painted her lips. Then proceeded to touch and smear the paint. I thought of giving her the lipstick and claim that she had done it all by herself!! But then I just painted over the entire face and re-did her features, and gave her a whole new hairstyle. And a handbag.   She is 24 inches tall.
Her dress is a jeans leg, her arms and head cut from a ladies lingeree, her blouse and purse are an old handkerchief. Her skirt is stuffed with plastic grocery bags. Her hair is wool roving. Her name is Jeanne. I think Carole Jeanne would have been good, too.
