And, Lastly...

I had fully intended to do a lot more embellishment. I even made wings and some beaded strands, but everything I added took away from what was already there. So...

...she is finished. Her colors aren't anything like the "Peace" rose I began with as inspiration, but I LOVE them.

Now if only I could figure out what is causing that annoying little shadow on her upper lip. It is simply NOT THERE in real life.

I don't remember the last time I have been so completely caught up on a project. OR had one with so few snags! I need to get back to my dressing project now. Good! I am actually looking forward to have a project that is something more "cut and dried"!

She came out beautiful! Funny how sometimes we want them to have something (like wings) and they just say No!

Oh, her colors are delicious, Judi! Did you sculpt her face yourself or use a mold? It's really pretty! I still say it's amazing to see the diversity in each doll from Jean's class! All the dolls re beautiful and extremely individual! I love them!

Did you design the wings standing out from her shoulders or sloping down? I think wings that sloped down her back, like closed butterfly wings, could look really nice.
