Well here it is another end of the week..
On to the next week. What will that bring?
I'm almost finished with the doll that I am doing here in town. We are trading dolls just like in ADO traveling dolls.
This doll came to me plain, blank. It's a vinyl doll that the woman got at Good Will. She then gessoed her... so she was just white with a huge mass of yellow hair.
I added eyes to her and she became a grump. So as I was taking the paper clay off I accidently wiped off her gessoed face. To find a sweet little face. I think it shocked me as I thought there was nothing under that gesso! Now what???
I've been thinking a lot about myself getting older. And how when I was young I had no idea what would change on/in my body, or what kind of person I would be at my age... not that I feel as old as I made this doll... But I thought it appropriate since I've been thinking about this. I'll make half the doll. I left the cute face, and I put half her hair in a braid. Then on the other half I got really into making this doll old and also living OUT LOUD! She doesn't care, she's going for the "purple" look. Watch out Dancing With the Stars!
