2 Done Dolls!!!!


December Babe Paperclay Doll

Pink Leopard Cake Doll




So Sad..she does not see her Beauty











I 'm Feeling connected and working through a lot of dolls and Ideas...ok..2 down...a million more to go!!!

Anyway....The Pink Leopard Cake Doll has a funky little face and and I got to practice my favorite painting technique in Pink for her cake hat that was created from Pluffy clay!!!    Leopard..i just love it! My good Friend and Teacher, Lillian Alberti,  taught me how to paint Leopard Print... I am forever greatful.  I also did her shoes the same print, and added Teeny tiny polymer roses...also a Technique taught to me by a good friend and teacher, Amber Dawn Inventive Soul! ...I think a girl should always have matching accessories....

Pluffy Snow Goose Hat













Her dress and hat have tiny polymer flowers
made with a kemper cutter







Pluffy Cake Hat...the tiny beads are actually polymer clay created from a cool "fondant" mold...what'll they come up with next!






















I also completed my little sad faced doll...she is my favorite...she is frail and skinny, quite sad..but I just have to Love her....something in her little face.  She is a Winter girl...like me, a saggitarius...her name is December Babe and her hat is a SnowGoose made from pluffy clay and a cool candy mold!  After I baked the goose..I carved her a little thinner and added paperclay to the bottom creating a cap do her head would fit...

Colleen,
The "sad face" doll is stunning...my favorite too. What a gorgeous face. I just love her!!!
That swan hat is so unique, have you seen all the crazy hats they're showing in Paris these days? This would fit in perfectly.

This is brilliant work Colleen!!!!!
<3 You are getting better and better!!!
By this time next year your dolls will be in galleries!
<3 <3 <3 I hope that you guys have a great trip around the city. I was there yesterday to do some shopping for the family. Check out the windows on 5th Ave if you have some time. There is a VERY cool window dressing over at Tiffany's! <3 It's merry go rounds, around the window. Saks 5th Ave has some fun window displays and there is a drag queen doll house set up with an amazing array of goodies within over at Henri Bendels!!!!
I just have to say, once more- YOUR WORK IS FABULOUS AND KEEPS GETTING MORE AMAZING! I am so honored to have a part in the history of your doll making details!!!! *hug*

I have a passion for fairy and elves and have suggested a doll show using the theme Fantasy dolls and Bears as there appear to be so many of them lately and each an original and precious work of art - but Girl Scouting 100 year anniiversary is takin precedence this year. My Doll Club is the best. On my way to IDEX on Friday!!
