Not ready to 'let go'

"Fairy Couture"
I created this doll using 2 patterns by Patti Medaris Culea. This past weekend my Mom was in town and as usual she BEGGED me to let her have this doll. I laughed and shook my head and said, 'I just can't let her go'. I don't know what it is with this fairy, but I Love everything about her. She's one work I think I'll keep Forever...

A Fun Pin Cushion!!!

While browsing the Internet and blogs the past few days, I came across Colleen Babcock's blog and loved it. She makes very beautiful dolls, quite similar to those created by Patti Culea. Her color combinations are superb.
Anyway, I dug into her archives and discovered "Pinelope" a FREE pin cushion pattern and I just HAD to make her. These are photos of my finished piece.
If you would like to make one of these charming pin cushions for yourself or a friend, check out Colleen's blog
You'll be happy you did...

Thanks Colleen!!!!!!!!!!

SweeT PoTaTo on eBay

Sherry Goshon did it again. She designed another whimsical Elfin pattern. This one is tall and skinny compared to the one I used for the challenge. I opted to create this elf from paper instead of fabric; added a dress, a sweet potato hat, some brads, and a hanger on back for a OOAK, articulated paper doll.

"Queen of the Goblins"

A sketch of this gal has been filed away for nearly a year and I thought today would be the perfect day to bring some color into her world.
Watercolor, pigma, acrylic, liquid gold, Swarovski crystals.

I'm having way too much fun with these ATCs!!!

"Tail of the Sea"
"Tail of the Sea"
Where does the time go? My goodness, this week flew by. I have been busy keeping up with emails and running my online marotte class. Things are going quite well. YAY!!!
I did manage to get a couple of ATC's finished for another swap. Both are titled: "Tail of the Sea". I created these gals with watercolors, acrylic, and ink. I really like how they turned out. I never thought a simple sketch I did (very late) the other night, would look this nice once painted. Hope my swap partners are equally pleased.
