The Time Keeper

I finished this doll on the weekend. It’s from a class with Michelle Munzone. I have taken classes and used her patterns since pretty much day one of my doll making journey. I like Michelle dolls, mostly because she does do the mystical type and in the beginning she won me over with her Jesters.

This doll is watching time. On the inside of the box, I used the celestial face that I found on an Etsy site, where Maggie has tons of collage papers you can buy and download. Here’s Maggies link. In the box along with the clock face, I added a little bottle to represent the sands of time along with some nautical elements charms that symbolize those which the mariners long ago would have used to travel the world, the sun, moon and stars. That was their only way to know what direction they were going. At the bottom of the Celestial face, is a ships wheel charm.

The clock for the front works on a battery. The Time Keeper himself is keeping track of time with his hourglass. I didn’t embellish him as much as Michelle did, but that’s just a personal preference. She was more daring than I for that part. It was a great class and maybe you’ll take a class with Michelle one day to.
