Doll pattern arrived...

Yay! Vintage Boudoir doll pattern arrived :0)



 She will be 33" from head to toe!

The legs on this pattern are not elongated enough 
and I prefer to work the torso & limbs separately.
I will be making a doll from my own design after the initial 
trial doll using this vintage pattern.
I would also prefer to have the stitching seam 
at the front of leg, & not to the sides, 
I am really enjoying this process so much already :0)

Frida Kahlo Challange May 2012


Jane's statement-


I know...many of us have painted Frida inspired paintings or joined in a Frida challenge before, 
but perhaps it's time for one more! If you have been in a creative funk like me, 
this might just be your ticket out. 


So here it is: 


Paint or make something Frida Kahlo inspired sometime during the month of May. 
Message me (rather than posting it to my wall) a photo and I will add it to the album. 
There is no competition...no prizes to be won...just an opportunity to stretch yourself and join in the fun. ♥ 
Wait...there is one rule. It has to be something NEW (done in the month of May). 
Do not submit something you 
have done in the past, ok?

29 faces...face 1


29 faces of May 2012

My first face (faces) for Martha's blog event.
I have been sketching ideas for boudoir dolls.
So you will be seeing a few faces in this style 1920s - 1930s.


I made this page for a book - 
How to create a boudoir doll, 
so intentionally kept the background cream.


I have really been enjoying the new art space  :0)
Ps..flowers from hubby (mwah x)



Why not join in with the fun?





2nd face tomorrow!! Yay!

love & light
