After a week spent being in all kinds of places where I *had* to be, doing things I was *supposed* to be doing, I TOOK the time to play with dolls this afternoon. Jacque Uetz is letting me test a few patterns for her, and I have been bouncing from one to another all week, working on one while bits of another are drying. Lots of layers to let dry on these pieces!
It's just the kind of "crafter's ADD" style of working that I usually indulge in though, so I am happy as a clam. Today I painted the body and face of a very sweet little vintage-style doll named Emma. Emma is very different from my usual style, but I am satisfied with the way she is coming together.
She stands about 15" tall, and will be dressed in vintage linens. I bought some cutter pieces on eBay last week, and now the fun part will be deciding which ones to use for her clothing.
Here is a close up of her face. Hmmm... need to work on that hairline a little. Lydia says she looks like a little Japanese girl... The original painting design does not call for eyelashes, but I drew some in anyway. Now I am wondering if I should paint them out.
