Hard as it is to believe that it is March already, I have to say that I am glad to see the tail end of summer...the bane of my life...or life-style really. I find it hard to get creatively motivated...probably because my water-logged body is boiling and my brain is frying, so all my creative ideas and intentions just frizzle up and look like the inside of the saucepan I burnt the potatoes in last week!!
Firstly, decide on a theme....this one is
an ART DECO theme, and I decided
on using images of that period's jewelery,
which I found on the web or in magazines.
Edit and prepare the images in a graphics
application, making sure that the torso
piece is exactly an ATC size.
The legs and arms also need to be no
longer than the actual ATC length
(3.5 inches), and the head must be an
appropriate size suitable for the size of the torso.
will be folded up behind the
torso to ensure the "ATC"
fits into the ATC pocket of a
9 pocket sleeve.
When dry, cut out and
begin to embellish them.
dressed in bling without her
make-up, so I made her face
Amazing what a little bit of
powder and paint can do!
(Actually, it is aqua and red Dimensional Gel Pens,
Kindy Glitz and a Beryl Prisma
Watercolour pencil...but don't tell her...vbg)
Mind you...she has plenty of attitude!
Before she would allow me to take her
photo, she insisted she had to have
MORE bling in the form of a head-dress
of silk flower petals.
She sure does look pretty now, doncha think?
BTW, the small pearls at the bottom edge are not actually on the doll...they are there to hold it in place for the photo-shoot.
So, there she is...easy as pie....and I would love to see YOURS when finished!
