For Rochelle

La Artiste Rochelle

I made this for Rochelle because I see her differently.  I made all of the clothes, the bag, the book, the pencils.  I made the rug too :) it is hand felted.

Teal colored denim jeans, worn and slightly ripped, with black suspenders.  Pink tee shirt and pink scarf.  Her own handmade sketch book and pencil.

Ready to go.  She has her tote bag filled with her things to sketch the city she loves.

  I had a wonderful time making this set for her.

This set is now for sale on Dolly Dolly.

Misty and Echo

¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸. (¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥

Misty started out as a Draculaura.  I took photos as I went along- and- did something I have been careful not to do (until now)...
I erased her photos from the camera before I was sure they had been downloaded to the computer. 
Lots of swearing going on here the other night when I realized what I had done. 
So you will not get to see her transformation, but you do get to see her :)

Misty insisted that she needed a cat.  I made a new pattern, changed it up a bit and then watched as Echo came to life.  He always answers her call, thus his name.

Misty and Echo are for sale in my etsy shop:

Ginger Finished

One Smarty Pants Deer

She took me in a direction I didn't expect- which made for a fun ride!  Ginger will be going up for sale at Dolly Dolly Fashions on etsy. 

Now....who is next???  I see a Frankie siting there in the corner...

Custom Monster High Doll - Ginger

Meet Ginger

Getting started.  White on eyes, brown details on ears and eyebrows.

Still deciding on her eyebrows, what kind of look I want. 
 Added blush on her cheeks, tinted her lips and blushed the inside of her ears.

Trying different tones around the eyes.  Wiped off the eyebrows.

Wiped back some of my painting and increased some of the dark tones closer to the eyes. 
Finished adding the lower lashes and started playing with eyebrows again.

Added more darks, and decided to keep these eyebrows. 
Also colored inside the nostrils and put faint lines on the lips.

Added first coat of Sakura Crystal to the eyes and lips. I will add more after it dries.

Added the eyelashes and more clear to the eyes.  Her face is done.

Her hands were the purple ones-- not what I wanted for this doll at all.

I started by using a cosmetic sponge and white acrylic paint.  It took 2 coats.  I didn't paint in between the fingers-- because I will be putting a darker color there and the purple will disappear.

First coats of color.  I used burnt sienna and white for the flesh, and black for the glove.

I added a darker color to the flesh - you can see the left side is darker than the right side.

Black and gold were added for greater detail.

Ginger is now ready for some clothes.

Next post will show her in her outfit :)
