This was a hectic two weeks. Every time I tried to work on something I had to get out of my shop for rediculous things, like make dinner...or pick up a kid...or SHOP Rite...UGH!
Anyway...I got through my two leapardy dolls. "GOT THROUH" means I forced myself. I loved making their crowns and painting them leapord...they are my favorite crowns to date because I'm so excited about the new painting techniques that I am learning. (I also made Tiny square polymer buttons and painted the "tiniest" leapard print on them...then added a tiny diamond to each one.) But i sculpted these two faces a couple of months ago...and I think I have changed since then...so I think it was hard to make these two dolls work....They are "nice" thats about it Just not WOWed!!! ...haha! (feeling critical!)
Check out the dolls...Actually, the little boots i did one step crackle on...I do love how "Vintage Old" they look...I will definately use this technique more. I guess each new doll...you learn something different!
Now that I completed them...I am excited for the next new faces..that I already have in my head.! They will be my "SWEETS" dolls......

My "thing" was inspired by Lilliano...who created the most beautiful leapord slippers for her "Princess and the Pea" doll.....I couldnt believe she painted them. I really wanted to learn that ...because painting is a bit of a struggle for me...and I'm a "Leapord Freak"...I hoard anything Leapord...and now she opened my world up...OK...JUST PAINT IT!!! then , I have FULL CONTROL..I can make anything leapord! Oh my gosh...THAT IS INSPIRATION! So I worked hard (taking as many tips from Lilliano as I could)...while we all worked and talked "ART"!! haha I am very happy with what I accomplished today (i'll keep at it until i get my "perfect" leapord print)... I have an Idea for a Leapord crown to go with this tiny dolls little leapord pants i made from my painted fabric....so i'll see what happens for this doll!
