ADO Elements Challenge - Water

Princess Aquaria and her pet snail, Walter, can be found for sale HERE.


I'm pleased to introduce "Princess Aquaria and her pet snail, Walter".

Princess Aquaria and her pet snail, Walter, rule a small section of the ocean floor with terror and fangs. Their subjects are a ferocious mixture of the ocean's cast outs. Visitors beware in this little area of the sea!


This is my entry into the ADO Elements Blog Challenge. Seeing that they are sea creatures, my element is water. This should come to no surprise for those of you who know me.


They are both crochet soft sculpture art dolls, affixed to a painted wooden base. I used cotton thread, acrylic yarn, felt, beaded crochet techniques, and the kitchen sink (it seems) to complete them.

  22. I can't run very well in water, so I'm REALLY glad that Walter is a snail! He must use a terrific teeth whitener. Awesome and complicated work, as well as extremely creative! Well done!
